The idea of the employee experience is not just a focus on the perks associated with an organization, an employee engagement survey, employee branding, or employee value proposition (EVP).  While these may be part of a toolkit that drives employee engagement, employee experience goes deeper into the sum of the various perceptions employees have about their interactions with the organization in which they work.  The word “perception” is not about what actually happened.  It is what the employee perceived to have happened.   Once the employee and their perceptions are first, the paradigm shifts and employees deliver astonishing results for their organization and the customer/guest.

Join us to learn how Fiserv, ADP, and Herschend Family Entertainment are creating world class customer experiences through their focus on the employee experience. 

What Participants will Learn:

1.    Learn the definition of employee experience.  What it is and what it is not.

2.    Learn the role employee experience plays in the culture of the organization.

3.    Hear success stories and lessons learned from four distinguished organizations on how they placed the focus on the employee and gained amazing business results.
