Session: Connecting UX and EX is a better experience for everyone
Leveraging user insights, data collection, research, and iterative development through formal feedback loops is common practice when honing your user experience. So, why isn't that the case when building internal structures? These same approaches apply to optimizing team function, the internal brand and working experience. This approach is critical now more than ever, since remote work has reached a tipping point – with the inability to formally address company culture and employee experience as issues arise around the office. By shaping employee experience with thoughtfully designed structures, insights around motivators and pain points, as well as feedback informing an improvement loop, a better experience can result across functions. Common UX tools like personas, journey mapping, and contextual feedback can be applied to internal teams to increase productivity, raise levels of job satisfaction and improve overall business performance.
By approaching corporate culture with a user experience mindset, the working experience can dramatically shift, resulting in highly-motivated and loyal employees. And, when employees are happier, productivity skyrockets and the experience is improved for everyone.
