A Sneak Peek at Limeade Engage 2021: 3 Factors That Directly Impact Employee Experience

The concept of employee experience (EX) has rapidly grown in popularity over the past few years, but definitions of EX have been hypothetical, redundant or vague. Knowledge gaps in our understanding of what creates a positive EX also makes it difficult to recognize how organizations can foster these positive experiences.

Given the destructive nature of the COVID-19 pandemic on the well-being of employees over the past year, learning how to make EX more effective has become an urgent need for all organizations.

The fifth annual Limeade Engage conference on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, will feature exclusive insights on factors that directly impact EX. Workplace well-being experts from the Limeade Institute will discuss the latest EX-related findings within our own research and from around the globe.

Limeade Engage sessions will explore three fundamental themes that directly impact EX: prioritizing inclusion, building a burnout recovery roadmap and fostering trust. Get a sneak peek at the sessions that will inspire your organization to elevate its employee experience for 2021 — and beyond.
