8 employee experience examples worth emulating

What exactly is employee experience, and how does it differ from employee engagement? Find the answers to these questions as well as some key EX examples.

A LinkedIn report found that 61% of U.S. workers are thinking about quitting their jobs in 2023. That number jumps up to 72% for Gen Z employees.

Ensuring a positive employee experience is critical for your company’s bottom line. While the rate of employees quitting their jobs in the U.S. has returned to pre-Great Resignation levels (2.4% now versus 2.6% then), employee expectations for working hours, benefits, and DEIB policies have changed for good. But these expectations aren’t being met by some employers, as workplaces struggle to continually adopt change at the same pace that workers have.

That means sharing the process, goals, and hosting tactics that have worked for me, as well as the things that didn’t.

I’ll outline here exactly how to hold a DEIB workplace event. With a little guidance, you can avoid the pitfalls I’ve encountered and make sure your next event is impactful for everyone.
