Building an Employee Experience Dream Team - Employee Experience Exchange

Rather than viewing HR as the sole owner of employee experience (EX), innovative organizations task a multidisciplinary team with planning, executing, and sustaining exceptional employee experience. But how to achieve success when challenged with resource constraints, varied understandings of the employee experience and its value to the business, and evolving employee needs?

Employee Experience Exchange members discussed strategies to pull individuals and departments across their organization to integrate employee experience into all aspects of the organization.
