Today I’m joined by Andy Whiteaker, Partner at Boyes Turner & Chair of Reading Abbey Quarter Business Improvement District.
I first met Andy at the launch of the ‘Better You Better Business’ event in Reading in October last year, where he provided the keynote speech. I was really struck by the similarity in our messaging about the importance of employers creating the right work climate for people to want to be part of.
So you he was an obvious choice to join today’s conversation about employee experience and whether it is just another buzz word.
We covered a range of points including:
The high notes we covered along the way are:
What we really mean by the term ‘employee experience’
How we know if companies are getting it right
How we make employee experience something that is tangible rather than just talk
The difference getting employee experience right makes for companies
How to get leaders on board with this area of development when they don’t see the value (yet) or don’t know where to start
