Improve the Employee Experience

Increasing the returns on employee experience investments

Today's employee experience is falling short for most

A Gartner survey revealed that only 13% of employees are fully satisfied with their experience. Organizations are making significant investments in efforts to improve employee experience, such as onboarding investments and workplace redesign. Although these investments incrementally improve employee satisfaction, the cost to continue to meet employees' ever-growing expectations is unsustainable.

We want to create an experience that reminds employees of their consumer experiences. We want it to be described as easy, personalized, seamless, consistent, empowering — and in other similar ways.

Maximize ROI by shaping how the experience feels

Gartner customer experience research finds that two-thirds of the drivers of customer loyalty are due to "feel factors," or how customers feel during and about their experience. HR leaders should take this same approach to employee experience, focusing on influencing and improving employees' feelings about their overall experience through the use of psychological, motivational and social principles.
