We are surrounded by beauty standards. How much we should weigh, what our hair should look like, what body shape is the most attractive, the type of clothes we should be wearing, what hobbies we should have… the list goes on.

The future of employee experience is changing, and with it, so is the employer-employee psychological contract. Employees want more than pay, perks and traditional workplace satisfaction factors. They desire meaningful work, supportive management, leaders they can trust, growth opportunities and a positive work environment.
