Today’s workers are feeling stressed, burned out and uncertain about their career paths, and those feelings are negatively impacting their work, according to new research from Gallup. Mike Morini, CEO at WorkForce Software, speaks with Agenda Week about the effects of the pandemic and economic uncertainty on employees.
These global events have taken a toll on people, leaving them stressed, burned out, and ultimately disengaged from their work. Morini shares how important it is to modernize workforce management systems and provide employees with digital communication tools.
He urges employers to make investments in this type of technology so managers can better communicate with their employees, create a better employee experience, and allow employees to be more productive on their tasks that matter.
“If employers are not modernizing and providing employees with digital management and communication tools they can use from their phones, they will end up having a workforce with low engagement and productivity, and eventually they will lose great talent,” Morini said.
He continues, “Employers need to make investments in this type of technology … to create a happy work environment and a better employee experience, and make it easier for workers to perform their daily tasks and stay connected with one another.”
