As the US market rebounds from the economic impact of the pandemic, employers are struggling to attract and retain the workforce they need. Employers who wish to differentiate their employee value proposition can start with listening to the voice of the employee to identify potential value creators for their workforce.
Mercer’s proprietary research program, Inside Employees’ Minds, explored views on work and the workplace to understand how employers can better meet the needs of their employees. These findings reflect the responses of 2,000 US full-time workers, hourly and salaried, at companies with 500+ employees, fielded from August 20-30, 2021. The study included a conjoint study of employees’ top concerns, as well as other topics including engagement, attraction and retention, and COVID-19.
