This is a must attend workshop, aimed at organisations pursuing competitive people advantage and setting themselves up to think more strategically about Employee Experience.
 
Improvised employee engagement and wellbeing initiatives, thrown together to fulfil one specific short to mid term goal just doesn’t cut it anymore. Sophisticated and forward looking employers are moving beyond annual engagement surveys, generalised reward & benefit schemes and annual activities to promote wellness to a truly integrated holistic approach.
 
This workshop will provide you with practical advice and tools for setting up Employee Experience strategy and navigating the complexity of this journey. 
 
You will walk away with:
·        An understanding of what a compelling end-to-end EX design looks like and its components
·        Guidance on how to develop experience capabilities within your HR team
·        An ability to reassess and identify your strength and weaknesses, as well as areas to focus on
· Knowledge of how to effectively support and motivate your employees

Main Conference Day One (24 Sep)

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

14:45 PANEL DISCUSSION: CONNECTIVITY: A BLESSING OR A BURDEN?

We are more connected than we have ever been, we have access to the most innovative and facilitating technology we’re ever had, almost everywhere. We spend more time online and working than ever before, yet employee engagement and wellbeing remain at their lowest, with a shocking impact on mental and physical health. Why?
 
Join this panel and discuss how to make our digital lives more manageable and enjoyable, ensuring technology is used as a tool to empower, rather than a tool to make your employees feel chained to work. The panel members will explore the following:
 
·         Your role in encouraging a healthy work-life balance
·         Acknowledging when things are about to go too far
·         Advice to prevent irreversible damage
