2017 HCInnovation@Work Conference

As the line between work life and personal life continues to blur, in a world where competition for talent is tough, employers must ask themselves how they can create an environment that not only attracts candidates, but positively engages with them at all stages of the employee lifecycle.

Employee Experience, the accumulation of digital touch points and live interactions that an employee has with their employer, is a new way to holistically view the management and support of the workforce.

Employee experience goes beyond just perks like game rooms or standing desks, and encompasses the processes, tools, technologies, communication and culture that makeup the workforce. It is intentionally creating end to end processes that get rid of unnecessary complexity and make it easy for your employees to interact with and work within your organization.

92% of business and HR leaders have identified the critical need to redesign their organization to meet new business demands - Yet only 14 percent of executives believe their company is ready to effectively redesign their organization.
