Three ways to succeed with Employee Experience

Three ways to succeed with Employee Experience

Join us as we meet Josh Ash, Head of Partnerships at Humaans, and take about employee experience.

Key take aways:

  • Employee experience is all about what a person hears, feels and sees from when they become a candidate to when they leave the company.
  • A good employee experience is fundamental to keeping people motivated and happy. Today, its not good enough to work solely with employee engagement.
  • If an employee leaves early, they can cost 5x more than their regular salary.

”The concept of Lunch & Learn was created during the spread of Coronavirus, as an initiative to support and boost HR and Leaders within a digital environment on relevant subjects. Not too stiff, Not too Long, Not too much. Basically - easily consumed knowledge. I never would have dreamed it would become such a success in Sweden"
