Topic: "Maximizing the Employee Experience During Change

Speaker: Lisa Perez

Program Overview: 

The employee experience challenge in the face of constant change: The employee experience is being heralded as “the next competitive frontier” for organizations according to Forbes author Denise Lee Yohn.

Deloitte Human Capital Trends research has prioritized the employee experience in their top ten trends for a number of years. Their findings state that “nearly 80 percent of executives rated employee experience very important (42 percent) or important (38 percent), but only 22 percent reported that their companies were excellent at building a differentiated employee experience. Fifty-nine percent of survey respondents reported they were not ready or only somewhat ready to address the employee experience challenge.”

We don’t need to quote statistics to know that the new normal for organizations is that change is constant. Few companies have managed to create a compelling experience for their employees. Add to that constant change, positive or otherwise, and we are facing a significant challenge on how to build, improve and sustain the eco system of a thriving employee experience while navigating change. Comprehensive effort and discipline is required to make a significant and sustainable change in the way employees experience their journeys in our organizations – especially during times of change. Come join us for an engaging conversation on creating a compelling employee experience while navigating change!
