9:30 - 11:00 MORNING WORKSHOP: DESIGN THINKING FOR EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCELeon Jacob - Employee Experience Design Lead, hkp/// group
Angelika Reddig - Employee Experience Design, hkp/// group
Design Thinking is disrupting HR to its core. It is a skill that most HR practitioners still lack and the one that will transform how HR teams deliver value, organise work and find solutions. It involves leaving outdated processes in the past and creating a human-centered agile model that will allow you to power innovation through understanding of what people want and need in their lives, specifically – at their workplaces.
The hard data shows that companies that deploy Design Thinking outperformed their peers in the last decade by 211%, measured by the Design Value Index. We brought this workshop to you to ensure you reap the benefits too.
In this hands-on interactive workshop you will work on:
- Developing a better understanding of Design Thinking
- Applying Design Thinking principles to people operations to enable experience creation
- Putting yourself in the shoes of your employees to understand what their likes and dislikes are
- Re-evaluating your employee journey and defining the moments that matter
- Learning activities and tools to bring back to your team and start implementing as soon as you’re ready

11:30 - 12:00 MORNING BREAK
12:00 - 12:45 DISRUPTIVE TECH PANEL
Workplaces are changing to become more tech savvy to reflect the needs of their internal customers. Technology has been helping make groundbreaking progress in efficiency and communication. However, when it comes to Employee Experience many remain sceptical that the benefits outweigh the costs.
As we discussed on day one, technology is enabling HR to move away from process development and allowing the opportunity for the function to focus on true people development. However, is it really worth the investment and how do you make the most of it? Is technology really able to elevate Employee Experience? If so, what technology is going to be key in complimenting Design Thinking principles and co-creation practices?
Hear from industry leading experts on where disruptive technology fits within Employee Experience design and how it can help you achieve your goals, faster. This panel discussion brings you all you need to know about things like omnichannel apps, virtual assistants, learning and communication platforms, and predictive analytics. Key questions include:
· What is the potential of technology to enhance EX?
· How to provide employees with the right technology?
· How to embed technology in the cultural transformation?
· How to achieve personalisation of experience?
· If you were to invest in one thing, what would it be?
Panel participants TBA, as we are in the process of brining you the industry leading experts.
