Always On – isn’t about employees being accessible within an organisation 24/7 but more that employees are able to provide in the moment feedback to the company on how they are feeling.
Always-on is fundamentally transforming the way employees provide feedback to their organisations. No longer is feedback controlled by the organization. It puts the power in the employee’s hands by allowing them to:
- Provide feedback on any topic they wish.
- At any point in time they want
- Via a medium that fits around their style of communication.
Always on helps employees raise issues in the moment and allows companies the opportunity to address them before they escalate.
Always on influences diversity, inclusion and belonging because it helps to frame strategic conversations. The Happiness Index revolves around bringing your true self to work.
