TOPIC: Creating an Intentional Employee Experience for the Modern Organization

Throughout the pandemic and post-pandemic era, the world of work has experienced an awakening. After extended periods of work from home, new levels of flexibility, and almost forced work-life integration, pre existing workplace traditions are no longer palatable. Employees and leaders alike have learned that we can be incredibly productive while still being present for our lives. Simultaneously, client needs are continually increasing. Leaders can begin to feel like they have to choose between their employee needs and client needs.

There is an alternative. While we often think about employee engagement as the responsibility of the organization’s top leader, sustainable engagement requires that we partner with employees so that they are in the driver’s seat of their own experience. For that reason, our workplaces, virtual or not, require design intention to create flexibility that is built for the long term. This intentional experience that inspires and empowers the humans in your organization elevates performance and increases our ability to meet and exceed those client needs.

In this talk, Melissa Boggs will describe the five things that are required to create a modern employee experience that connects leaders and employees, increasing engagement and inviting joy for all.

SPEAKER: MELISSA BOGGS

“It starts with you, because when you embrace your own uniqueness, so will your team. When you demonstrate self-confidence, self-worth, and your strengths, they will feel the permission to do the same. When you tell your stories, so will they. At this intersection of strength, vulnerability, and uniqueness, that’s where thriving begins.” – Melissa Boggs
