Adapt your workforce configuration to align with new ways of working

As organisations determine which lessons they want to carry forward to support growth in the new normal they should consider the longer-term implications – from the way work is done to even the nature of the work itself.

In this environment, a great employee experience is no longer a luxury, it’s a must-have to drive sustainable competitive advantage. But that’s about much more than just technology. It’s about transforming the whole workplace experience (WX): from modern workplace platforms, business operations, as well as culture and employee experience.

“In the past, social media meant that passengers were often better informed of the status of their journey than staff. Now, all RET employees can remain completely up to date — whether on the bus, tram or metro train.”

Onno Donkervoort ICT manager at RET

EX + CX = competitive advantage

Applying the principles of customer-centricity to your employee experience you can boost productivity, cost efficiency and business growth. Research from the Center for Information Systems Research (CISR) at MIT Sloan School of Management shows that firms with the best EX achieve results including*:

  • Double the customer satisfaction 
  • Twice the innovation
  • 25% greater profitability compared to competitors
