Series 2: The how to getting employee experience right.

This was so much fun to record!

Dan Sodergren is a Ted X talker, keynote speaker, ex-marketing agency owner, digital trainer, serial tech start-up founder and now media spokesperson. Quite some profile! 

Some of Dan's main areas of interest are the future of work, remote work and using data, and he is co-founder of YourFLOCK, a team engagement platform based on values.

We unpick challenges and share insights about employee experience, retention and what the future of work is really about, including:

  • Why a blanket approach to expectations for employees, including hybrid working, does not work 
  • What high performing teams look like and what they need from their leader to enable this
  • How managers who find one-to-ones challenging can still find out what they need to know
  • Mindset vs generational differences
  • How economics will destroy companies if bosses don't listen - it's a simple choice
  • Employees in the UK need recognition more than other countries; a fact we can't ignore
  • The role of quality data and tech to improve employee engagement and retention
  • Feedback to inform employee needs and priorities that are straight forward to action
