New Global Standards For Workforce, Interview With Sue Jauncey, Founder of Appellon

Jauncey explains how organizations should be focused on objective versus personalization based employee wellbeing.



  1. COVID-19 has presented us an opportunity to set new workforce standards.
  2. Stop asking employees for their views and opinions; this only increases stress and anxiety in individuals. Instead measure behavior outputs against performance improvements. Human beings like infrastructure, clarity and what’s expected of them.
  3. Replace personalization with objective driven management.
  4. Go for the win-win: improvement wellbeing and performance, simultaneously.
