Unlocking anthym: The Top 5 Employee Engagement Trends in the Age of Distributed Work

In the realm of distributed work, discovering the latest trends to keep your workforce engaged is like finding the perfect playlist for a road trip. Let’s dive into the top five employee engagement trends that are shaking up the work landscape, all while sprinkling a little anthym into the mix.

How’s the Engagement Scene?

Recent years have seen a shift in employee engagement, with Gallup revealing a slight dip in 2021. Fast forward to 2023, and only 32% of full and part-time workers report high engagement levels. But fear not, we’ve got the lowdown on the trends shaping the future of work engagement.

1. Building a People-First Culture

Anthym’s Virtual Team Building events are the secret sauce to reinventing a magnetic culture. Mental health support, wellness programs, and fostering a positive workplace culture—these are the beats that keep employees grooving to the rhythm of engagement. Prioritize mental health initiatives, throw in some fitness programs, and celebrate achievements to create a workplace symphony.

2. Embracing Flexibility

Flexibility is the key to keeping your talent on the dance floor. Autonomy and work-life balance take center stage, granting employees the freedom to dance to their own rhythm. Download our ebook for more tips on creating a positive company culture in a distributed workforce.

3. Feedback and Performance Jam Session

Regular performance reviews play a significant role in building trust and harmony between managers and employees. Fairness, transparency, real-time feedback, and goal setting create a harmonious melody. Engage your distributed workforce with pulse surveys and actively listen to their tunes to foster a positive work environment.

4. Grooving with Growth Opportunities

Learning culture, knowledge sharing, and career advancement create a rhythm that keeps employees engaged. Encourage skill development and let the beats of Learning & Development elevate your distributed work experience.

5. DEI Beats for Inclusive Harmony

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives are the ultimate jam for increased productivity and engagement. DEI training, cultural celebrations, and ERGs are the tracks that enhance engagement and trust. Let your organization dance to the rhythm of diversity and inclusion.
