Solving the Employee Experience conundrum: SAP SuccessFactors and People Matters EX Week

Never let a good crisis go to waste, said Winston Churchill

In challenging times, one must question the accepted reality because things are going wrong, rapid answers are needed and the solution may well be found outside the usual compass.

In this new reality, predicting the future is beyond our reach. In the world of business, we are often guilty of not challenging the norm; we are instead satisfied with following procedure and tradition.

The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly re-prioritized employee expectations; today, employees need to have access to digital tools and technologies to get work done. They also need a supportive workplace culture to help them navigate new business realities. 

Delivering on the promise of great #Covidification will be a key differentiator. In an attempt to help businesses design employee experience as thoughtfully in the times of turbulence, People Matters in partnership with SAP SuccessFactors brings to you #EXWeek.

People Matters and SAP SuccessFactors, #EXWeek, starting from 5th-8th May, will be a non-stop exchange of ideas, conversations, and consultation with three big focuses:

  • EX in the times of the “new normal”
  • Moments that matter
  • Technology that bridges the EX Gap

The #EXWeek will showcase some of the most inspiring examples and case studies of how India’s top employee experience innovators attract and retain key talent. The key highlight of the #EXWeek would be the launch of the People Matters and SAP SuccessFactors research - Mind the gap: 2020 Outlook for Employee Experience. The research is based on the survey responses of 509 unique organizations across industries, sizes and geographies within India, making it the largest employee experience research conducted in India.

May 6th: Tweetchat: COVIDex: Find and fix the moments that matter (MTM)

Most companies address ‘Moments that Matter’ with a decades-old, top-down approach. This paradigm is based on treating workers alike and having HR serve as the primary conduit to a standard set of work-related experiences including recruiting, onboarding, training, promotion, and retirement. As work and workforces have grown more complex, it is clear that ‘Moments that Matter’ does not occur solely at specified career milestones. 

This tweetchat will see industry speakers answering some of the most burning questions pertaining to creating an employee experience in the times of pandemic. 

The tweetchat discussion will center around creating the critical moments of employee experience on a continual basis like workplace design, sharing feedback, growth opportunities, measuring the experience outcome, etc.
