After the pandemic, the economy is expected to be buzzing: Economic researchers expect the unemployment rate to fall to 5.3 percent as early as 2022 and thus almost match the pre-crisis level. For companies, this also means that they must continue to look after their employees intensively to motivate them for the future and position themselves as a good employer.
For companies, this means that they still have to look after their employees intensively, even if the focus is of course on many other topics at the moment.
