HR Survey Results: Employees’ Concerns with Unpredictable Work Schedules PULSE, a Paychex HR Podcast

    • Management

Since the start of the pandemic, unpredictability has been the norm — especially when it comes to work schedules. Some employees are working longer than expected in a day, others find it hard to clearly separate office and personal hours, while still others don’t know which hours or days they’ll be working from one week to the next. Listen in as Jeanne Meister discusses our online survey of 605 full-time and part-time employees working at small to mid-sized businesses (20-500 employees). You’ll hear how unpredictable work schedules are directly impacting employees, and what today’s leaders can do to address the unique challenges being faced by different parts of their workforce.

Topics include:

0:50 – Research reveals impacts of work schedules
2:30 – Unpredictability and hourly workers
3:23 – Younger generations most affected
6:25 – Ways to address the problem at its cause
9:27 – Full-time employees are putting in more hours
11:07 – Flexibility in “when” and “where” I work
12:13 – Recommendations for leaders
