Employee Experience #2 - Workplaces of the future are all about Super Experiences
Part two of our employee experiences blog series, exploring how businesses are striving to provide better workplace experiences in a bid to attract and retain top talent, as well as to drive innovation and creative thinking in the workplace.
- Awe-inspiring experiences: They encourage employees to think differently and improve their creativity. The elevator in One World Trade Centre New York, has an immersive digital display that reveals the transformation of New York City from unsettled plains to the current forest of skyscrapers. This experience moves individuals to another state of mind as they travel up the 102 storeys of the building.
- Curated experiences: They bring people together and promote collaboration. An example is using workplace designs such as staircases through the middle of office floors to encourage ‘bump encounters’ and orchestrate cross-departmental and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
- The Learning experience: This refers to the rise in ‘omni-learning’ where people are encouraged and expected to constantly update their skills independently and pass learnings on to their colleagues. An example is Facebook’s Kahoot, a platform for staff to engage in social learning through digital gaming.
