EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE… WHAT IS IT?
A personalized work experience throughout the entirety of the employee lifecycle aligned to an organization’s culture and business objectives.
Employee Experience is aligned with autonomy. It is individual empowerment. It drives performance and engagement. Every employee has a personalized experience connecting them to their role, team, and company goals, maintaining alignment with the bigger picture and purpose of the organization.

WHY YOUR EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE MATTERS
The list of people related priorities and focus is different for every organization; what isn’t different is the importance of your individual employees and getting the most value out of each and every one of them. It’s no secret companies want productive and engaged employees. It’s also no secret the way to achieve this is through focusing on their Employee Experience. Once work is understood as a holistic experience, and when designed well, your Employee Experience will programmatically discourage detrimental behaviors while promoting behaviors aligned to your culture. However, most organizations are not taking advantage of the power of the individual, the need to create a strategic and personalized experience, and thus are missing an enormous opportunity to attract, engage, and retain quality talent.
Let this be the year your company focuses not just on engagement but on your Employee Experience. The Employee Experience is all encompassing, including employee productivity, internal communications, and culture to name a few. It goes beyond engagement, but make no mistake engagement is profoundly impacted by your Employee Experience.
84% of organizations say it is important to transition from careers to experience.
