Improve the Employee Experience

Create and deliver a high-ROI employee experience

Employee experience insights

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

    Maximise ROI by shaping how the employee experience feels

    Gartner customer experience research finds that two-thirds of the drivers of customer satisfaction are due to "feel factors," or how customers feel during and about their experience. HR leaders should take this same approach to employee experience, focussing on influencing and improving employees' feelings about their overall experience through the use of psychological, motivational and social principles. Improving the way the experience feels can lead to a boost in employee engagement and support a positive company culture. 

    Shaping has a greater impact on employees' experience. Organisations that effectively apply this approach can achieve these impacts on employees: 31% more likely to report high intent to stay, 35% more likely to report high discretionary effort, 47% more likely to be high performers.
