The Employee Experience Index: The Next Competitive Advantage

9:05 AM - 9:35 AM The Employee Experience Index: Improving Job Performance and Sustained Competitive Advantage

The employee experience today can be a positive and powerful– and ultimately human – experience, in which employees are able to immerse more of themselves into the workplace. The behaviours and actions of leadership and management can help set the stage to make sure organizations are delivering an experience that drives a sense of belonging, purpose, achievement, happiness and vigor for employees. Companies want to be able to measure what drives employees so that outcomes can lead to a competitive advantage. The measured results can result in better job performance, higher retention and increased engagement.

In this session we will discuss:
•What set of leadership and organizational practices are available to create more positive employee experiences
•What the ideal employee experience looks like in today’s workplace
•What impact a positive employee experience can have on key outcomes
•How organizations can drive more positive and human employee experiences
