Global Operations Leader, EY
Global Delivery Services
sheds light on the tenets that are central to creating a winning workplace
Opportunities in Waiting
At EY Global Delivery Services, we had a flexible work culture pre-pandemic as well, which helped us successfully transition to fully remote work in March 2020, and now into a hybrid work environment. From an employee standpoint, the flexibility presents an opportunity for our people to balance work and well-being. It has improved collaboration as offices have become more of a social hub where teams come together to work and collaborate. From an organization’s standpoint, it helps us plan the footfall in the offices, which is paramount for employee safety during these uncertain times. Also, the planned travel does have a positive effect on the carbon print. Overall, when employees are happy and content with the way they work, it reflects upon the quality of work they do, which is a win-win situation.
Create a Winning Workplace Culture
The definition of the workplace has changed, and belonging is the keyword for creating a winning workplace culture in the post-pandemic era. When employees feel they belong to the organization and the organization belongs to them, it makes for a great workplace. In addition, transparency, trust and open communication are an essential part of creating a great workplace culture.
