Ep. 57: Tomorrow’s successful workplaces will be the ones who put people first.

To build the workplace of tomorrow, it’s become critical to empathize with and understand employees’ needs, motivations and aspirations; provide employees with the freedom and empowerment to define what their own experience should be. As customers are now accustomed to drive their own experiences, employees expect the same level of personalization from their employees. Gone are the days where organizations treated their employees as the same bunch.
Employers must change their mindset and adopt more of a consumer approach to engage with their employees.

Technology (think of people data, AI, machine learning) plays an important role in the design and delivery of those experiences, but the human element will always be at the center of the EX. Analysts, HR futurists and forward-thinking business leaders are challenging HR leaders to think about whether or not they are ready for a future of work that incorporates both an emphasis on technology, robotics and AI, alongside a requirement to embrace the people side of work and human needs.

Tomorrow’s successful workplaces will be the ones who put people first.
