Right from candidate stage, on to onboarding, training and upwards to their promotion or exit interview – how can we ensure the employee feels valued on their journey?
Did you know that 72% of interview candidates who have had a bad experience share it online directly or with someone! With websites such as Glassdoor where you can rate a company’s interview experience it’s now more important than ever to ensure you have a procedure in place for a good candidate experience.  By having a great reputation you are also most likely to see the best candidates applying for roles in your firm.
Onboarding is a key stage for loyalty and engagement. 69% of employees are most likely to stay with a company for three plus years if they experience great onboarding.  It’s been recognised that it is not enough to give yearly appraisals – Ian Woodward, Group HR Director at Caesars Entertainment has rolled out a coaching and feedback strategy which gives real- time feedback to front-line staff.
One of the biggest trends for 2017 will be to build an employee experience relevant to your customer experience, Niall Ryan-Jones, Head of Employee Experience at Harrods has merged the gap between CRM and ERM and seen fantastic results.
Recognition and empowerment are key things employees cited as needed in a workplace. 46% said they would leave a job they held for years for better job satisfaction even if it meant retraining.
Employee Mapping is key to shape the employee experience.
