An employee is also a person, a mother, a father, someone's child, with problems, difficulties. It is necessary to have a culture that takes in all the dimensions of the individuals. Many external factors can affect performance, job satisfaction, and quality of delivery. Companies are made up of people, so when people do well, your company does well.
Increasingly this notion that companies need to think about the people they hire is gaining importance among workers. This is what the "Global Talent Trends, 2022" survey, released by LinkedIn and conducted globally through the analysis of internal surveys and interactions on the platform, shows.
No "Children's Buffet" culture
Remember the boom of games in companies? The fashion was to have ping pong tables, TVs, beanbags, coffee breaks. Then, people ended up realizing that these changes were only superficial, and that after they were hired, they would lose a little of their luster.
It is not enough to have a culture of appearances without empathy for others when it comes to hiring people.
The Great Resignation (Great Resignation), or the Great Resignation, as companies are having to adapt to the demands of their workers. Especially if we think about the near future.
The mass dismissal that occurred in 2021 in the USA, known as the Great Resignation, which has already hit the Brazilian job market, forces companies to think ahead. After all, many people from the Boomers and Zoomers generations, who were close to retirement or already retired, took advantage of the pandemic to sign their retirement papers.
Corporations will only remain if they are prepared prepared for the demands of future generationswhich in this case is Generation Z.

Professionals are creating relationships of trust and empathy with companies
Changes such as flexible schedules, evaluation by deliveries and not by hours worked, the possibility of working remotely, asynchronous communications with teams, and even the reduction to 4 days work with 3 days rest are becoming more and more common.
In functions that cannot be performed remotely companies are organizing days without meetings or rest/leave periods. This is all a way to include all professionals in initiatives that value their well-being. Most importantly, these are changes that truly impact our relationship with work.
