This guide introduces the ideal employee experience and Udesk's solution.

When you try your best to enhance the consumer experience, have you ever considered the working experience of your employees?

But have you ever stopped to think about the employees who create value are vital throughout the entire value chain? Employee experience should not be dismissed as just a conceptual term; it deserves recognition and attention.

As an employer, you may have encountered various reasons for employees leaving: excessive work intensity, uncomfortable office environment, slow internal workflows, lack of employee benefits, and so on. But have you truly considered the underlying principles of employee management behind these reasons? Shifting your focus from "employee management" to "employee experience" will provide you with a whole new understanding.

What is employee experience

Initially, employee experience was often understood simply as employee satisfaction or engagement. With the rapid development and application of technology in the digital age, employees have increasingly higher expectations for their technological experiences at work. As a result, HR departments have shifted their focus towards enhancing automation and intelligence in service and support processes. In fact, the improvement of employee experience is manifested in the subsequent increase in employee engagement and satisfaction.

Ideal employee experience for employees

01 Easy and Convenient Access to Information

Employees desire services, processes, procedures, and personal information to be accessible online and easy to navigate. They want to access these resources anytime, anywhere, using their preferred devices, with seamless interaction across platforms. Cumbersome and outdated applications can lead to frustration, especially when employees are seeking critical information necessary for completing tasks

02 Process Transparency

Employees want clarity regarding their job performance and expectations, development opportunities, and internal promotion processes. Understanding how to achieve their goals fosters trust and engagement, creating happier employees who are more productive and contribute positively to the overall performance of the company.

03 Robust Technological Support and Resources

In the realm of intelligent customer service, employees expect to have access to technology and tools to support their work. This not only enhances efficiency but also reduces repetitive tasks, allowing them to focus on more valuable activities. Additionally, ample training resources and continuous learning opportunities are crucial for skill development.

04 Respect and Recognition

Employees seek a work environment that acknowledges their contributions, respects individual opinions, and values their career growth. This involves cultivating an open culture where employees are encouraged to share their ideas and providing diverse pathways for growth and personal development.
