Strategic Human Resource Management And Business Leadership

As reported by many companies, many employees have shown changes personally and professionally because of the challenges that they faced at home and at work during the disruption. While working from home and dealing with family situations at the same time, some people have become more vocal in communicating their needs for moral and psychological support and resources from their organizations in order to perform their tasks to achieve the business goals. Some are becoming more sensitive to workplace irritations, such that they wouldn't mind looking for another job somewhere that could provide better work experiences and benefits. On the positive side, some employees are becoming more compassionate and empathetic to others who are suffering more than they do.
