The employee landscape has changed and so have expectations

Employees are spending less time in the office – they are working flexibly, at different times, using different devices. And in a post-Covid landscape, the marketplace is ever more competitive. A new demographic of value-driven employees now expects seamless experiences in how they work just as they do in their personal lives: a task like ordering new equipment needs to be just as easy as ordering a takeaway!

Employee Experience is good for business

“In a world in which competing on price and product is increasingly difficult, experience is and will continue to be a major differentiator. Companies that invest in this area wisely will excel, while those that do not will flail.”

- Mark Taylor, Senior Vice President and Global Practice Lead for Cognizant Digital Experience

Taking the right approach to experiences

Design-thinking insists on products and services which are desirable, viable and feasible. But the world has moved on from such solutions, with customers and employees now expecting products and services to be responsible too. That’s why we have built responsibility into our experience-led approach to creating innovative strategies, products and services.

Delivering a great experience for your team is a business imperative. But great EX doesn’t happen overnight and incorporating it into your wider CX strategy is hard to achieve. In fact, our recent research with Forrester found that 38% of leaders in customer experience think their organisations failed to view employee and partner enablement strategies as part of an interconnected experience ecosystem. It highlights how leaders in CX also need to be leaders in EX and PX (partner experience) to truly drive business growth.
