Life in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtably impacted the way we work, live, and play. It’s no surprise that after only three months, a July 2020 survey conducted by Monster found that 69% of employees were experiencing burnout symptoms. In certain career sectors this figure is even greater and more detrimental to the welfare of our greater society. As an example, the healthcare industry has been on the frontline in battling the global pandemic and the effects upon workers may be felt for generations. Now after two years of employees and their families manage working remotely, children schooling from home and the usual living at home, the workforce is growing increasingly anxious to return to traditional workplaces.
As the deployment of vaccines motivates employers to return their workforce to the office, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to returning to “business as usual.” Developing a comprehensive re-opening plan that addresses the health and wellness of the physical space, the impact of work-life balance on employees, and the challenge of maintaining connected and engaged environments safely is essential. While traditional employee benefits are always imperative to attract and retain talent, employers will need to offer advantages that extend beyond the obvious. Implementing creative ways to help support their workforce during these challenging times, such as virtual corporate concierge services, may hold the answer.
The misconception that corporate concierge services are costly and exclusively provided by Fortune 500 companies inevitably hurts employers and employees alike. By minimizing and even eliminating costly time spent by employees on tasks best handled by a concierge, the cost-effective benefit of concierge services offers employers a powerful recruiting and retention tool that can be measured beyond productivity hours. From booking necessary personal services like house cleaning, landscaping, tutoring for their school-age children and even travel, employees are alleviated of everyday tasks that distract from performance.
