Digital technologies are redefining innovation and the importance of Employee Experience (EX) (episode 1 of 2).

Research scientists Dr. Kristine Dery and Dr. Nils Fonstad from MIT’s Centre for Information Systems Research (CISR) talk to David Carmichael, Avanade Solutions & Industry Marketing Executive, about how digital is changing the world of work and how it’s become a key driver for innovation. They take a look at the different areas of digital innovation and how it’s impacting businesses today. Research from MIT CISR shows that investing in Employee Experience (EX) doubles customer satisfaction and innovation and leads to 26% more profitability. Dr. Dery and Dr. Fonstad explore the correlation between EX and CX (Customer Experience) further and reveal more interesting stats. This and much more on this first of two podcast episodes.
