Their dispersed workforce, even during an onerous pandemic while carrying extra burdens such as childcare, were remarkably productive. Yes, we know that this doesn’t mean the period was easy for employees, and leaders were also surprised by the parts of their workforce that remote work was more difficult.

According to the Global EY consultancy CEO, Me Carmine de Sibiu that “The start of this work from home experience is quite bewildering. We thought that our young people were the ones who love to work from home and love technology and that our people in their 50s will hate it.” But as far as I’m seeing things it quite the opposite. He further said that young people are the ones who want to communicate and so forth. People in their 50s, who feel comfortable, have their networks, who can save two hours a day on commuting, and therefore, kind of like that. “

While he researched it and found that the average age of the global workforce of 300,00 of EY is 27. “We have a lot of young people living in small apartments around the world, and living in a small apartment in this environment is not great,” said de Sibiu., Which indicates that the company’s support resources were much needed.

“We’ve had more people calling our hotlines to ask for help, just out of a mental state.” The consultancy CEO De Sibiu said that which conducts regular surveys of its employees, has done several things to try to ease the pressure on employees around the world, including giving workers in the United States an extra vacation – the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. “Our employees deserve it,” he said. Because I’m seeing a lot of stress in our young employees and they have been stuck in their home and work pressure. It is definitely, needed to give them days off!

Another study conductor Annette Clayton, North America’s chief executive officer, acknowledged that younger workers are being affected by remote work. She said the company’s open talent market – a digital platform that connects employees with opportunities across the company, exposes them to new teams, and allows them to gain skills and experience – has helped keep company employees happy and growing in their careers up to this point. I cited an example where a young employee volunteered to participate in policy work related to data centers and cybersecurity; The junior employee brought valuable objective experience, so much so that the individual was brought to a meeting with US Senators and is now being considered for other roles. We know that this year has been super tough on all of us and our young employees are not being socialized and get to show their talents. What are your views on it? Comment below!
