I’m here for an experience.You need me to be aligned, I want that too. But I also want to feel nurtured and inspired.
I want to build my skills, explore my interests, achieve my goals and learn. I want to build on my strengths and learn new skills that will help me achieve my short-term goals. I also need to explore other areas of interest that can help set me up for future success
Tapping the right balance at work is where an employee finds the golden nugget. An organization that encourages creativity or embraces a culture of fun at work is sure to boost an employees’ overall sense of happiness and their desire to be productive at whatever they do.
I need easy access to mentors and learning paths that support my growth – in mycurrent role or beyond. I want to understand how potentials are identified aroundhere. So I know what I would need to ace any new role. When there is social & instantrecognition for an employee's eorts, the behavior or performance that led to successand growth is also known to me.
It’s not just one thing — it’s the totality of experiences. Each bad experience chipsaway at the bond, and each good experience strengthens it.
I wish to take pride in my work and be motivated for reasons other than praise.When a company thoughtfully celebrates every milestone, personal or professional and recognizes every effort one puts in, be it small or big, it makes a mere satisfied employee into an employee who actively pushes for greater things each day.
If the colleagues I work with are able to freely share and exchange ideas, like friendsover a cup of coee, rather than remaining isolated individuals, companies can shine.Constant collaboration helps to reduce stress, increase socialization, and can oftenprovide more creative solutions. Working as groups on projects is something that Iwould be thrilled to explore.
I would love to work in a company where I can receive and share views about the organization, management, and work environment no matter where I may fall on the organizational chart. A work culture where I get to witness transparent actions on the meaningful feedback and firms up my trust with the organization. This will help me build confidence that being open about an issue is the first step to solving it.
If you can sew these threads into the fabric of an employee journey, that’s when you spread a well wovenemployee experience in your organization
Employee Experience (EX) is currently a hot cake in the HR circles. EX is not another name for EE. It is beyond that. It’s a means to the goal, a holistic term that encompasses a full spectrum of experiences that the employees undergo during their tenure. EX is the vehicle to ensure engagement. It is the medium through which organizations achieve engagement goals.Which means if EX is taken care of, the organization can have more engaged employees.Companies flourish when their employees are connected, aligned, motivated, and empowered. This only happens when employees find inspiration and meaning in the work itself, and when employees feel appreciated by and connected to their colleagues and company.To achieve this, you need to bid adieu to the age-old engagement models and adopt the new way that’s continuous, manager- and employee-led, and people-first.
