Your 2022 HR Checklist to Drive a People-First Culture

Written by

Since the beginning of the year, workplaces have been struggling with employee retention, hence The Great Resignation crowding up our minds and LinkedIn newsfeeds. Employees are expressing they need more: not just more compensation, but greater flexibility, career growth opportunities, and a company culture that aligns with their passions and purpose. 

That’s where a people-first culture comes in. An organizational culture that puts its employees first means it listens and values the needs of its team—a place where a person’s work fills them with a sense of purpose, progress, and belonging. As we approach New Year’s, what better time to start than right now? 🎉 

To help you plan for a successful 2022, here is a handy checklist you can tape to your wall or bookmark on your browser. The list includes the most important things to consider when planning for the next year that emphasize creating and maintaining a people-first culture. If you check these boxes off the list, it’s a good sign you’re taking care of your people, which in turn will create higher retention, better productivity, and stronger business outcomes.
