During the past few years, we all have witnessed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s daily lives. 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 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.

In response to the challenges and experiences of employees, human resource leaders and practitioners have shifted their focus more on addressing people’s needs to sustain their engagement and improve their performance to achieve organizational goals.
