Employee Experience: The Pinnacle of HR Excellence

Every company wants engaged employees, because highly engaged employees don’t act like “employees,” but rather volunteers devoted to a passion project, always looking for ways to add value, improve morale and drive results, without sacrificing company culture. During this webinar, Paycor’s senior director for marketing communications Katy Bunn shared how to map the ideal employee experience path, starting well before a new hire’s first day. Based on extensive research and interviews with successful HR teams, this session taught attendees how they can create an ideal employee experience within their organization to not only drive engagement, but also encourage employees to become evangelists for their companies.
