Test your relationship to work!
Lockdowns, remote working, health measures and social upheaval: the COVID crisis has shaken up the needs of employees. Today, employees are questioning the way things are done, expressing new expectations and may even resign without you having been able to anticipate it. Engaging employees has therefore become a major challenge for managers in order to maintain the productivity of teams and the performance of the company.
Encouraging engagement at work is the subject of the latest course co-published by somanyWays. In this course, discover the Workoscope®: a reading grid that allows you to better understand your relationship to work – your vision, needs and expectations at work. It was developed in 2018 by somanyWays, after more than 3 years of R&D with individuals in professional questioning.
