Organisations face 3 types of challenges during a pandemic:

  • Traditional Demand: The need to satisfy the same customer demand as before but with a modified approach. 
  • Emergent Demand: The need to satisfy a new customer demand that emerged from the pandemic
  • The time period of changes: Forecasting how long these changes will last, whether temporary changes are likely to disappear once the pandemic is over or sustained changes that will become a regular part of your organization’s operations going forward.
  • More fatiguing for some as there are fewer social cues than those conducted in person. 
  • Some employees appreciate the more detached meeting style
  • In summary, the feedback has been paradoxical. 
  • Employee groups are becoming heterogeneous. 
  • Standard blanket homogenous rewards and benefit offerings are no longer ideal for employees.
  • Employees have started to prefer organisations that offer a basket of reward options based on their individual preferences. 
  • This includes offerings that support their healthcare, lifestyle, wellbeing, learning priorities such as gym memberships, cafeteria options, skill addition opportunities etc.
