The consequences for employer brands can be severe. For these reasons, many employers have begun focusing on improving their employee experience (EX).

This Employee Experience & Engagement: Strategy, Programs and Analytics workshop provides HR, EX and OD professionals with the essential knowledge, skills, methods, and tools to design and manage an end-to-end EX strategy and programs for their organisations.
