Boyd started off with highlighting that employee experience has changed so much over the last year, and being able to motivate employees is top of mind for most CEOs today.
We’ve got to be intentional about the environment we create with our employees. Notice I say ‘with’ our employees, rather than ‘for’ our employeesJ. Daniels
Furthermore, thought provoking questions were posed to the attendees. Some of these questions included: How do you go about creating an environment which will support business growth and sustainability? Some organisations have a business strategy, others go as far as converting this into some sort of Customer Experience Strategy. But how does this translate for each employee as they go on their day-to-day working life? How do you get this strategy to affect real change which leads to business growth?
