It has been five years since MetLife last conducted its Employee Benefit Trends Study (EBTS) in Mexico. Both the economy and employment practices have changed significantly since then.
Mexico has a huge labor productivity gap between small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large firms. Also, there’s a gap between employers’ views of work attitudes, health and wellness, and those of their employees. This isn’t new. In 2013, employers also overstated the levels of employee engagement. But today, the gap has widened.
This report shows how addressing the unmet needs of a multigenerational workforce can build a better workplace — and generate loyalty, engagement and productivity from employees. The first step forward is for employers to better understand employees’ feelings about the workplace.
