A guide to employees’ most pressing needs and how your organisation can meet them based on the finding of Mercer’s Employees’ Minds study.

After two years of continual upheaval — the pandemic, a war in Europe, inflation, and political and social unrest — employees are more focused on securing their financial, physical, and emotional health and wellbeing than ever before. 

During the height of the pandemic, organisations supported their employees in four critical ways:

  • They communicated.
  • They focused on health and safety needs.
  • They allowed greater flexibility.
  • They led with empathy.

This support increased employees’ belief in career development and their trust in leadership and empowered them to challenge the status quo. But now, cumulative stressors and fears are causing employees to feel less satisfied, less motivated and less committed to their organisations than previously.
