You care about your staff. and you want to free them up to focus on what they do best. You’re looking for a practical solution to support their wellbeing, and it needs to be straight forward. Of course you do! But how? Ever consider a Corporate/Virtual Concierge program?
By 2025, it is estimated that “Millennials” will make up roughly 75% of the world’s workforce. These touchscreen-tapping, instant messaging multi-taskers who’ve grown up in a world of friending, gaming, trending, googling and facebooking are used to instant results and won’t easily settle for anything else.
Today’s average employee has an average of at least 15 co-workers friended on Facebook and other social media platforms meaning the line between work and personal life is definitely blurred. They might be Skyping with a friend half way around the world at 10am but likely will also be answering work e-mails at midnight.
For companies trying to hire and maintain a competitive edge they must become Millennial-friendly. The office with a door, the title with a few letters and promises of a 5% raise are no longer incentives that speak to the growing Millennial workforce. Investing in employees’ well-being and personal fulfillment is now more important than ever.
Given the current workload and multiple hats employees wear, it’s easy to see why some employees are experiencing and the overwhelming inability to manage work / life balance. Work is inevitable but we shouldn’t exchange our personal lives for a paycheque.
Implementing a Corporate Concierge program equates to:
- The ability to retain and recruit quality talent;
- A more productive and engaged workforce;
- A reduction in absenteeism;
- A lower level of stress within the workplace.
Offering Corporate/Virtual Concierge programs combines Millennials’ three favourite things:
- It allows them to multi-task;
- Produces instant results;
- Improve the quality of their personal lives.
Such programs take care of the employees’ numerous life to-dos, making it much easier for them attend an evening networking event, plan a cocktail party for friends, or just relax with the important people in their lives.
Saving time, reducing stress, and improving retention turn into major cost savings and productivity gains for employers, especially considering employees spend up to 2.5 hours of the work day on unavoidable personal tasks.
Imagine the peace of mind your employees will feel knowing that their mounting “to-do” list is being taken care efficiently by someone else freeing them up to do what they do best … Imagine.
