What is Employee Experience?

Employee experience (EX) refers to the overall journey and interaction that employees have with an organisation throughout their employment. It encompasses all aspects of an employee’s involvement with the company, from recruitment and onboarding to daily work activities, professional development, and ultimately, the exit process.

Why does it matter?

Whatever your employee’s position or location, you need to consider how they feel about the company culture, the technology and tools you provide for them to do their job and the physical environment that they work in.

A positive employee experience will ensure greater employee satisfaction levels, productivity, performance and wellbeing. It will also enhance your employer brand and facilitate the attraction and retention of the most talented people.

Some of the things that make up employee experience (EX)? 

  • How aligned your employees feel to the purpose and values of the organisation.
  • Whether they think that it’s a fair and inclusive place to work that treats people with respect.
  • Whether they are given the right technology, tools and skills to do their job.
  • Whether they have been given the right amount of autonomy, empowerment and flexibility to do their job well.
  • How people are recognised and rewarded internally.
  • What the physical environment is like.
  • How authentic and ethical the leadership team are.
  • How customers as well as suppliers are treated by the company.
  • How well the company listens to its employees and how much the employees get to contribute to any decisions that are made (especially when they will be directly impacted by them).
  • How much they feel that the company cares for their general wellbeing as well as their personal and professional development.
  • And in this particular pandemic situation, it’s also about the experience for employees that have been furloughed.
