Atlassian’s Dom Price on how to keep staff on board when talent is scarce
The COVID-19 pandemic has likely changed the way we work forever. What many thought would be a few weeks of working from home quickly turned into six months, which then turned into 12. For some, that’s stretched to 18 months, on and off.
But aside from the practical challenges of remote work, the pandemic has also created a workforce that’s thinking differently about their employers and their work-life balance.
In partnership with PwC, Aussie tech giant Atlassian recently surveyed 1,200 white-collar workers about their attitudes to work.
The results spoke volumes. First, it became evident that employees — particularly those in the Millenial, Gen Z and Gen Y demographics — expect their employers to speak up and act upon societal issues. They’re also much more focused on maintaining good mental health.
