“Ultimately, people are companies’ biggest competitive advantage,” says Ashish Kaushal, founder of Consciously Unbiased. “Based on the unique data uncovered by UntappedAI in the playbook, we’ve created a roadmap for how companies can truly listen to their workers and transform workplace culture to better match American workers’ values today.”
According to Untapped AI, the pandemic has sparked a shift in what employees’ value most. For example, there has been a 32% increase in employees wanting more autonomy as compared to before the pandemic, a 57% increase on the importance of flexibility, a 35% increase in levels of employee resilience, and a 38% increase in employee-led activism. Moreover, Gen Z is twice as likely to be involved in employee activism then other employees, such as speaking up, demanding better conditions, and holding companies accountable for ethical behavior. Overall, 55% of American workers are more likely to quit if they don’t get the conditions they’re seeking—such as flexibility, autonomy, better pay, etc.
