Creating Value through Employee Experience
27 June @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£399.00
Employee engagement remains a vital focus for HR departments. However, despite a decade or more’s investment in engagement surveys and developing line managers, etc, engagement levels are often still much lower than we would want them.
Learning from other developments in innovation, digital technology, workplace design, service design and gamification etc now provides new opportunities for improving engagement in different ways. These opportunities centre on improving the employee experience - ensuring that employees can get their jobs done, and do this in a way which supports their satisfaction and wellbeing, in order to generate positive results for an employee, the groups they work within, and the employing organisation as a whole.
Doing this requires a people-centric focus which sees employees as whole people rather than just job holders. One issue in this, of course, is that each employee has different needs, and hence developing the experience needs to take account of these, leading to flexible and even personalised services and interactions. However developing experiences can also provide other non-engagement related benefits for an organisation which can help sell this approach to business leaders too.
