5 Tips to Create a Better Employee Experience in 2022

It’s 2022, and almost everyone wants a better employee experience. We’ve experienced an unusual 2020 and an unsettling 2021. The time is ripe for change, and employees and HR professionals should look for improvement and stability.

Employers seem to be listening. In fact, according to a recent employee experience survey, more than 90% of employers have plans to make boosting the employee experience a top priority this year.

In the past, company perks included things such as stocked break rooms, on-site game rooms, fitness centers, and even catered happy hours. But now, enhancing the employee experience means taking a more person-centered approach. It’s more vital than ever that leaders try to bond with their team members.

Here are some ways to create a better employee experience in 2022.

  1. Take time to show more empathy: You must take extra steps to show you care in these uncertain times. After all, employees may have issues at home that affect how well they work in the office. When you show genuine concern for your employees’ well-being, it helps boost their morale. Bottom line: you can create a work environment where people want to come.
  2. Keep the remote option: If your company can’t offer a remote work option, how about providing hybrid options? A recent Joblist survey found that almost 65% of employees believe that flexible schedules and remote work options will help improve their work experience. Maintaining a remote option can also improve employee loyalty.
  3. Create a positive company culture: Are your employees happy? Do your team members engage with each other and have genuine concern about the company’s success? Positive company culture creates a better employee experience, and one way to keep the workplace positive is by removing negativity. Be on the lookout for these negative signs:
  • gossip
  • aggressive or passive-aggressive behaviors
  • management favoritism
  • exorbitant complaints
  • lack of work/life balance
  • tyrannical management techniques
  • unreasonable workloads
  • high turnover

If these signs look familiar, it could be time to take in employee input and reboot your company’s culture.

  1. Elevate the sense of belonging: One of the best ways to prevent high turnover is to increase your employees’ sense of belonging. When your teams are enthusiastic about being at work, they are happier, more engaged, and satisfied with their role at work.
  2. Enhance engagement: One of the best ways to decrease turnover and increase profitability is to create highly engaged teams. You can create a dynamic work environment by creating a culture that recognizes employees. Spontaneous kudos and meaningful feedback can help boost morale. Scheduled team-building events are another great way to improve engagement and boost company morale.

Creating a better employee experience is an ongoing cruise that changes with your employees’ needs and wants. Sure, catered lunches are always fun. However, leaders can keep the positive work momentum at full speed by adopting a holistic approach.
