We're in a new era of work. One in which employee expectations have changed and many UK organisations now find themselves in a battle for talent.

Employees have been voting with their feet, gravitating towards those employers who are willing to invest in hybrid working, tech, training and social values.

 

We partnered with Censuswide to survey 1,500 public and private sector employees and identify the role of technology in the employee experience.

 
 

We found that technology helps employees stay engaged and happy, and more investment and training is a high priority to them. And yet many organisations are considering reverting to pre-Covid technologies.

 

In our new report we share the key findings, explain why maintaining momentum in tech investment is essential and how it can help your organisation win in the battle for talent.
