Why is coaching important for entrepreneurs?
In order to stay relevant as a business, you must be willing to adapt to the lifestyle demands of a younger workforce. Otherwise, you will lose the top and innovative talent to companies that offer more flexibility in their workplace environments.
Here’s the great thing about this though: those businesses that do adapt and offer more flexibility, autonomy, and work/life balance to their people are seeing clear upsides to the shift.
A 2019 Staples study reported that 67% of employees said that they would consider leaving their jobs if their work arrangements become too fixed. 90% of workers surveyed reported that more flexibility would boost their morale and increase their job satisfaction, which are key factors in employee recruitment and retention.
If that’s not enough to prove it’s time to change the way you do business, a recent Zenefits survey discovered that 77% of employees listed flexible work as a top perk when evaluating job opportunities.
“The competition to hire the best will increase in the years ahead. Companies that give extra flexibility to their employees will have the edge in this area.” Bill Gates
Visionaries and innovators understand to get the results you are looking for, it all starts with you. It starts at the top. It’s time to rethink the way you do business.
It’s time to grow.
