As the business landscape changes rapidly with ever complex work environments, the possibilities of technological advances, increased transparency and the influence of millennials, organizations find themselves scrambling to provide the employee experience that fosters an engaged and productive workforce. The workplace has a critical and unique role for people. It is where most of us spend most of our lives and where we shape our livelihoods.  We are seeing a seismic shift in employee expectations of work with emerging research calling for organizations to go beyond ‘business as usual’ to create the conditions for success. 

A new holistic paradigm must emerge, integrated at the core of business to shape the employee experience, which makes the organization a magnet for talent and the platform for high-performance teams to achieve superior business results.

This session will position HR professionals to make strategic contributions in the design and implementation of an integrated employee experience strategy at their organization. HR professionals will gain a deeper understanding of the links between culture, motivation and sustainable change.

As a result of this workshop, HR professionals will be able to:

·         Demonstrate the link between strategically focused employee experience initiatives and business results.

·         Identify organizational opportunities for optimizing employee experience throughout the organization

·         Design reward systems that link strategic leadership development, successful employee experience, and improved productivity.

·         Assess organizational readiness to embrace an employee experience-oriented culture as a strategic imperative
