According to Forbes magazine, 2018 is going to be the year of the employee experience. In the past, companies have always focused on the customer experience and relationship. While this is still an important factor of making a business tick, companies are shifting to how the work environment influences their employees. The employee experience is crucial, as it not only helps with employee satisfaction and retention, but also helps the company itself to grow competitively.
So, what does this mean for you?
If your employer sets up a ping pong table in the breakroom, or if a brainstorming project is posted with the potential of a bonus or reward, take advantage of it. It can only benefit you in the long run. Your employer is not only doing this for fun, they want you to enjoy coming to work every day. Work is not perfect, but it can most definitely fun and enjoyable. It’s all about what you make it.
