Deep Dive: Alert Center on employees demanding healthy work-life balance
The pandemic has changed what employees now expect from current and future employers.
Marsha Gordon, the President and CEO of the Westchester Business Council, says now, more than ever, employees require a healthy work-life balance.
She says the number one thing parents are looking for is a hybrid schedule, with opportunities to work from home.
Others want to work for companies that have career development opportunities and a culture that promotes equity and inclusion.
Some are even shortening the work week! "A company I know shifted the workweek for its employees where you can work four days a week and those days have to be longer days. So that, I have absolutely seen and it's a very powerful incentive," says Gordon.
