What Leni Rivera can say in an interview about
The title of a recent Washington Post article says it all: Four-day weeks and the freedom to move anywhere: Companies are rewriting the future of work (again).
- Article highlights include that Zoom is giving all 6,000+ employees complete autonomy over where to work; Bolt introduced a four-day workweek for all employees to help sustain their work-life balance; Slack’s corporate office is being redesigned as a hub for gathering; and Amazon and Salesforce have given teams the full autonomy to decide when and where to work based on their team projects and deliverables.
- Transitioning into a work-from-anywhere environment will not be the same for every company. Here are the 2 key insights from the article which explain why this is true, and how you, too, can successfully – and sustainably – transition into this new environment:
1. LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES
- The decisions on how, where, and when people work will depend entirely on their own personal objectives, preferences, and needs. And it’s not the same for everyone, nor is it the same for every team. That’s why giving them the autonomy to choose what works best for them, rather than dictate what leadership wants, will be the best, and most sustainable, way to drive productivity, engagement, and loyalty.
2. Lead with EMPATHY
- Your employees are whole people. They have their own personal needs, preferences, priorities, and values. The only way to allow them to bring their best selves to work every day is to acknowledge and support this. Incorporate their personal needs into your policies, whether that’s more time with their families, training programs for personal development, extra support for child and parent care, or cutting off work time to improve mental health.
