Reimaging Employee Experience eBook
Employee experience continues to remain a focus for business leaders in today's current working environment. To help inform organisations, Microsoft has released some research on how we can reimagine employee experience and support it with technology.
Over the past few years, working norms have changed and we have shifted into a space where many organisations are still trying to figure out what strategy is working well from both a business operations perspective but also from an equally important employee experience perspective.

Even while employees may see each other less, they still need to feel connected to colleagues and engaged with their workplace. There is no better time than the present to reimagine the future of work for your employees. Microsoft has released some new research regarding employee experience. Below, we explore some highlights from this research.
