Employee Experience

Wednesday, Nov. 8

Everyone remembers the customers, but what about the employees? Hardly any admits that their employees are forgotten, but still, the employee experience suffers.

In these changing times, discover join the Employee Experience conference track to meet with peers, exchange experiences and prepare for 2024.

Designed specifically for modern leaders, this conference track offers valuable insights into creating a positive workplace environment and fostering employee engagement.

Join us for thought-provoking discussions and networking opportunities to gain practical strategies that can enhance your organization's employee experience journey.

With the support of the Boye peer groups, we have this year gathered esteemed speakers from Ireland, Sweden and Denmark who will share their experiences and vision for the future of higher education.

While four other tracks will be taking place simultaneously, you can take advantage of breaks, plenary sessions, and popular evening social events to broaden your perspective and engage in conversations with peers from different industries. If you have the time, consider arriving a day early or staying a day late to attend the two additional conference days.

This is an exceptional chance to learn from a diverse community of peers and establish meaningful connections that will contribute to your professional growth. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Keynote: Lessons from the canvas - Dodging the digital wasteland

For digital experiences to suck less... For your website or even digital workplace to stop being so incredibly boring... You need to transform your world of incremental improvements, reliance on CRO tactics, and cut through all internal fights over who gets to have the most pixels on your homepage.

Design thinking and other innovation processes helped. But those methods don't always lead to high-quality digital moments.

This opening keynote will tell you about those who know the most about how to insist on the quality of the end result of your digital experiences.

Are you ready to insist on brilliance and obliterate the boring?

Culture development that works – Towards agile organisational development

Most organizations have started to understand they can’t go on working like in the 90s. But stories of culture change where the organisation really, really changed?

Not so many, and definitely not with change management from the 90s. Time for an update.

I’m going to share how we can look at organizations, how transformation works in complex contexts and how to differentiate symptoms from root problems.  But mostly, I’ll take you with me into my experiences from all kinds of rather conservative companies who started the journey – what went well, what red flags to look for?

Prepare for practical insights into principles and levers that help you move an organizational culture - and those you can skip.

How to adopt a truly multicultural work environment

What have I learned from adopting a multicultural work environment in a small homogeneous country like Denmark and perhaps, more importantly, what you might you learn from these lessons that you can use to shape and improve your employee experience

Focus and flow: Personal productivity and sustainable pace for all knowledge workers

Many knowledge workers spend their days drowning in inboxes and doing hectic multitasking. This is silly. Because there are several principles and techniques which provide focus and flow. This is called 'Personal Productivity'.

Personal Productivity is about staying on top of all tasks enabling you to prioritise what is important. It is about keeping a calm focus during the day making sure you deliver quality efficiently and make fewer mistakes. It is also about taking breaks and time off ensuring that you thrive and keep your balance.

It is about creating a much better and sustainable employee experience.

In this talk Line Hviid will tell you why Personal Productivity is so important for all knowledge workers. She will also give you a couple of tips and tricks so you can get started as soon as she stops talking.

How to combine talent attraction with employee engagement

The value of your employer brand is your employee experience

The thing is; Employer Branding is as big an internal discipline as external.

So why are we not giving our employees (and candidates) the same digital, personalised, well-communicated experience with our brand as we’re giving our customers?

In this session we’ll double-click on:

- How to engage employees by giving them the voice of our brand.

- How to utilise your brand's tone of voice in your recruitment marketing

- How to upgrade your onboarding experience and make that new-joiner honeymoon phase last as long as possible
