Tydy Up is baaack…just as the summer blockbuster season gets a roaring start with Doctor Strange. Watched it yet?
*Not a spoiler alert*
The movie’s got a larger-than-life superhero looking for a treasure while fighting off an evil power.
Now, that’s pretty dramatic for real-life…but things are quite close for People Teams right now.
You’re the superhero. The evil is the spiking rate of employee attrition.
And the treasure you’re seeking - an exceptional Employee Experience.
On that note, let’s dive right in - into news, updates, and insights from the EX space.
Between April and September 2021, more than 24 million Americans quit their jobs. That’s no small number. And looks like the attrition trends are continuing to rise. Is there a reason? Dr. Donald Sull and Charlie Sull’s data has uncovered trends that put a real face to the problem - a toxic work culture. We love data 🧡.
It’s exciting to have EX on the boardroom agenda. But there’s a high chance you might feel bogged down by the pressure to show results and impact very soon. You know, as much as we do, that EX is still so new and diverse that getting the needle to move can seem like a monumental task. But what if you had a ready EX-building tool to work with? Well, we have one for you and Gaurabh Mathure, our Product Head, can show you how it works in less than 30 minutes.
If Deloitte’s Women at Work Report is anything to go by, there are trends that you should take immediate note of.
There is something about the Nordics that they almost always top the Happiness Index. In fact, they even have a word for happiness at work. And no, their ideas of happiness aren’t elaborate business strategies and 90-day plans. It is as human and every day as it can get. Check some of them out for yourself.
📢 One that everyone is talking about - Airbnb’s ‘Work from Anywhere’ policy!
When most are charting their return to office strategy, Airbnb hit headlines with a decision that’s quite the opposite - letting its employees work from anywhere. And this comes with zero pay adjustments for those choosing to move to less expensive localities. Quite a pioneering move, isn’t it? The 800,000 visits on their Career Page since the announcement certainly seem to say so.

😲At the same job for 84 years, Walter Orthmann’s secret to longevity is mind-bogglingly simple
“When we do what we like, we don't see the time go by. I don’t do much planning, nor care much about tomorrow. All I care about is that tomorrow will be another day in which I will wake up, get up, exercise, and go to work; you need to get busy with the present, not the past or the future. Here and now is what counts. So, let’s go to work!”
Until next time.
