50% of adults struggle with mental health, employers struggling to make adjustments

Another way businesses are starting to accommodate workers is by giving them time during their workweek to focus and improve on their own career development. Maybe that’s attending a class or a lecture on how to improve. Kirchner says that flexibility shows employees that their employers value them and recognize their contributions and in the long run helps retain those employees. Kirchner says the employers around the area are starting to accommodate the workers more. They are becoming more flexible with start times or end times and with how work is being done and when. Expert: Higher pay doesn’t mean employee will stay

Experts say that due to the pandemic workers are reprioritizing their values and what’s important to them. Experts confused with surplus of job openings as Indiana’s unemployment rate is similar to pre-pandemic

“I’m optimistic,” Kirchner said. “We are headed back toward normalcy. As organization leaders, it’s our reasonability to be empathetic to what everyone is going through and why work isn’t necessarily the first thing we are thinking about. I think that credits opportunity for organization leaders and human resource professionals to be thinking about what are ways in which we can accommodate our workforce.” The Indiana Department of Workforce Development states that Indiana’s unemployment rate is still under 4%, which is less than the national average. However, more and more employers are placing help wanted signs and looking for recruits.

However, even though wages are being raised several employers are still having trouble hiring employees. Kirchner says that more often than not employers want to be wanted and feel appreciated. One trend experts are seeing is that employers are making their employees feel appreciated by giving them better health coverage, more specifically mental health. More insurance providers are offering counseling in their insurance packages. Indiana’s current minimum wage $7.25, and data shows that only 1% of workers are making minimum wage. Out of that 1%, half of those making minimum wage are under the age of 25 and a majority of those people are either high school or college students or have a disability.

Several businesses around Fort Wayne, like McDonald’s, Arby’s, and Chipotle have raised wages to try and attract people. Which raised the question of how many companies are still paying minimum wage. Companies accommodating and being more flexible can help employees stay at a company, without raising a worker’s pay. However, Kirchner says that the worker’s need must be meant, meaning they are able to afford an apartment or house, food, and other basic necessities.
