The hybrid workplace is here to stay; we can’t deny it. Fall is rapidly approaching and 2023 waves to us on the horizon. But we are struggling to measure how well our employees are fairing during these changes. We often focus on employee engagement to ensure employees are meeting their goals, but an article from the Harvard Business Review has us rethinking this strategy.
Dawn Klinghoffer and Elizabeth McCune pose one vital question in their article, “Why Microsoft Measures Employee Thriving, Not Engagement.” Is employee engagement still effective in today’s hybrid workplace?
The answer is no; we should focus on employee thriving, instead. A thriving employee is someone who is “energized and empowered to do meaningful work,” according to Microsoft. Thriving employees learn every step of the way and love to engage with their work, their teammates, and themselves. They are given opportunities to grow within the organization both personally and professionally.
