Workforce Experience Design in the Era of Employee Power


Employees are unhappy at work, and companies are still trying to force them into the corporate structures that no longer serve them. And while they put up with it for now, employees still have the power to disengage if they find it necessary for their mental health.

Employers, then, must design meaningful experiences that are attractive to an emboldened workforce by embracing continuous feedback loops, implementing human tech, and bringing new meaning to their employee experience initiatives.

In this keynote Josh addresses the shifting power dynamics of employee experience and offers an upgraded approach for creating active channels for authentic and transparent human connection.

Employee experience design (EXD) is a critical element in shaping an organization’s success. The way employees feel about their work, their colleagues, and their workplace can significantly impact productivity, retention, and overall organizational performance. This presentation will explore the importance of EXD and provide insights into how to design a positive employee experience.
