Creating an engaging and flexible workplace to retain employees
A successful hybrid working style creates a healthier balance between employees' professional and personal lives.
As a result of the rising “work-from-home/anywhere" trend, there has been a renewed focus for employers to evolve their workplace; the aim being to create non-prescriptive ways to bring employees back to the office.
Instead of enforcing a return to the office, employers are looking to create new, modern, and fun workplaces to organically entice staff back to the office. Creating an engaging workplace comes in different shapes and forms: some tenants are investing more in workplace technologies such as faster internet and more advanced video conferencing platforms, while some companies are putting a stronger emphasis on mental health via pragmatic initiatives, such as free perks, social events, and stress management support.
A successful hybrid working style creates a healthier balance between employees' professional and personal lives, which in turn translates into empowerment and productivity. In one of our latest research projects, 66% of employees surveyed in Hong Kong believe the hybrid model is critical for retaining talent – when applied correctly, hybrid would be essential for companies to stay competitive.
The speed and effectiveness of how tenants adopt this latest trend might be the key in the current war for talents – there is no better time than now to engage your workforce.
