The pandemic and its aftermath have shifted how employers view employee experiences at work. Personal factors rather than external factors have taken precedence over what matters to both enterprises and employees. According to recent research, employees are concerned about work-life balance, flexibility, and mental health as they look to their companies for assurance about the future.
