When attempting to compete for and retain the best talent available, employee experience is the name of the game. 83% of HR leadership rate employee experience (EX) as “important” or “very important” to their overall business success. EX keeps employees engaged in their day-to-day work and satisfied with their current positions.

Improving employee experience is a widely-accepted aspect of business. It’s a great practice, yet an astonishingly low number of organizations actively put work into their EX programs. A majority (60%) of employees in the US have a channel for giving feedback. However, on their employee experience, only 30% report that their employer actually uses insights from their responses to enact a positive change.

The latter applies to my business, Timesheets.com, and how I’m able to manage my 20 office-less workers and several thousand customers from my phone.

As the nation adjusts to this austere new lifestyle, consumerism has slowed down immensely. Consumers are only buying the essentials, which means they aren’t spending like they used to. Of course, when people aren’t spending money, businesses don’t make money. Therefore, many business owners have had to make tough decisions to stay afloat.

To protect their businesses from the coronavirus, many business owners have adjusted employee hours and pay to save costs. In addition to that, some employers recently laid off and terminated employees. This is the unfortunate new reality that both employees and employers must face.
