Like past eX Summits hosted in Indianapolis and Cincinnati, the event will focus on helping employers engage and retain talent in an increasingly competitive job market.”
“The Twin Cities job market presents a lot of options for candidates in the professional space, and competition for talent has been intensifying in recent years. Organizations must now depend on the strength of their employee experience to retain talent,” said Structural CEO and former GovDelivery co-founder Scott Burns.
“A lot companies think that means ping pong in the break room, free snacks, and high fives. Those things on their own don’t create the experience most highly-skilled workers are seeking.”
The eX Summit, initially launched in Indianapolis in 2016 by Stephan Vincent, Director of Marketing at Fusion Alliance of Indianapolis, aims to help employers better understand how to align corporate culture with employee needs and motivations, create opportunities for personal growth, and build spaces that employees want to spend time in. “The total employee experience will be the determining factor in whether an employee will stay with an organization. It’s not enough to simply pay higher salaries.
There needs to be a vision for engagement and growth to retain people as competition for talent tightens” said Vincent. “Designing an employee experience strategy should be a collective, organizational effort. A human-centered approach to the Employee Experience — very much like the Customer Experience — is the key to success.
This is how eX Summit is different from traditional HR events. Its brings a brand and customer experience perspective to company culture and employee engagement. “We have to recognize the need for our employees to bring their whole selves to work.” said Andrew Eklund, founder and CEO at Ciceron, recently named one of the Twin Cities best places to work by Minnesota Business Magazine and Mpls/St. Paul Business Journal.
“When Kraig Larson and I started Ciceron, we wanted to create a company that we would want to work for. That meant being deliberate about culture, our work environment, and the technology we use. That’s why we partner with Structural — to help our employees and customers expose their skills and interests, and ultimately succeed at work and in their personal lives."
