If you could change one thing at your workplace - one policy or benefit, etc, anything at all, from safety issues to representation to general culture, pay, hours, duties, whatever, what would it be?
To put it another way, if you were going for a new job, what one thing would make you see a prospective new employer as progressive and staff-focussed?
Guess there will be quite a broad range of answers as some of us will work for huge faceless corporations and others smaller companies. I do a pretty run-of-the-mill job with virtually no benefits, so i’d say:
Pay all staff at least the National Living Wage.
Allow staff to pick their own set hours to accomodate things like childcare, second jobs, learning, partner’s hours, recreational stuff, etc.
Put in place a more sensible, mature sick day process, so no reasons needed, no culture of separating physical and mental health issues, multiple ways of contact, no pressure to return to work, etc.
