This webcast dives deeply into the EY 2023 Work Reimagined Survey results from more than 17,050 employees and 1,575 employers in 22 countries, across 25 industries.

Employers are influenced largely by cyclical developments, making critical talent, operational and strategic decisions fueled by economic, labor and geopolitical pressures. These influence considerations for office and technology investments, total rewards programs, and efforts to cultivate an organizational culture underpinned by trust.

Employees are guided largely by structural workforce realities, and remain more empowered in their employment decisions, with an emphasis on wellbeing, perception of value, work flexibility and financial stability.

Join this one-hour webcast to learn how to best navigate the “next normal,” build opportunity for your business, and reshape your talent strategy for the future.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The global race for talent: Economic uncertainty continues, but employees are less influenced. Pay remains the primary concern of employees and in the next 12 months, more than a third of employees say they’re willing to change jobs. Is your Employee Value Proposition keeping your organization attractive to existing and prospective employees?
  • Hybrid working: Among workers with knowledge- and expertise-driven roles, more than a third prefer to work fully remote, compared to a fifth of businesses. Are your policies and processes keeping up with a more mobile workforce?
  • Real estate: Better quality commercial real estate is not enough to attract employees back to the office, but it may help in other ways. Are you achieving all you could with your approach to office space for workforce productivity, culture and more?
  • Technology and GenAI: Both employees and employers show enthusiasm for Generative AI (GenAI), and expect to see benefits to productivity and new ways of working. But is your organization truly prepared for the challenges and opportunities of this technology?
  • Upskilling and reskilling: Skills-building and training are top priorities for employers looking to upskill and reskill their workforce and for employees looking to remain competitive in a still strong labor market. Is your approach to workforce capability in line with the future shape of your organization?
  • Culture and leadership: Employers and employees believe the power balance has slightly shifted toward employers in the last year, but employees have gained 8% in perceived power since 2019. Is your organization truly prioritizing building trust?
