Alight surveyed 10,000 employees across five countries (United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France and The Netherlands) for our annual 2022 International Workforce and Wellbeing Mindset Study. Now in its 12th edition, this study examines a wide range of focus areas, including employee wellbeing and experience, culture, total rewards and workplace technology.

In this Era of the Employee, the need to deliver a great employee experience has grown exponentially. Technology and the shift to remote work has made it far easier for people to switch jobs if anything about their current situation is not to their liking. Organizations are increasingly focused on and investing in creating environments and cultures that enable their people to thrive.
