Become an employee experience thought leader
The employee experience (EX) is a fundamental aspect of the modern workplace – how employees experience their work and how they feel about working at a company. Forming a component of what attracts and retains quality employees, EX has a direct effect on cognition, employee attitudes, and behaviors such as workplace performance, and overall employee health and wellbeing.
