Why you can’t go past an Employee Experience Platform now!

If we look beyond the current situation, we need to prepare companies for the future and define the work of tomorrow. In doing so, there are a variety of requirements:

The most important point is to create a work environment that inspires as well as motivates employees and provides them with the necessary tools, information and collaboration opportunities. This has a direct impact on productivity, well-being and commitment to the company.

By putting the employee at the center, other goals such as customer satisfaction, revenue growth, market share, or even collaboration across organizational boundaries are promoted at the same time.


Components of a comprehensive strategy

Many buzzwords are used today. Therefore, it is helpful to work with the following definitions:

A Digital Workplace is defined as a central digital work platform or hub that provides information, tools and services independent of location.

A Social Intranet is a software or online platform that promotes the exchange of information within companies. Unlike the Internet, it is only accessible to a specific group of people (employees, customers, suppliers).

Social Collaboration refers to the cooperation of people in projects, groups or even teams with the help of the Internet and electronic media.


An Employee Experience Platform as a holistic solution

The general conditions described above now lead to requirements for an enterprise experience platform:

EXP new


In our opinion, we can speak of an Employee Experience Platform (EXP) when the eight elements outlined above are covered and this EXP integrates seamlessly into the existing infrastructure.

Successful projects are characterized by bringing together communication, knowledge, learning, resources and insights into a holistic experience that enables people and teams to perform at their best from anywhere. Ease of use and user acceptance are also key.


Key players you should have on your radar

Many vendors have evolved their solutions during the crisis, becoming EXP providers in their own right or extending market-leading ecosystems such as those from Microsoft, IBM, Google or SAP. Your industry, infrastructure, solution already deployed and user preferences will determine which solution or combination of solutions you choose:

Microsoft’s Viva brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources and insights into an integrated experience that enables people and teams to perform their best from anywhere.
