VISION 2022: The Experience Conference Day Two Recap

Apr 7, 2022

Survey Results: How Businesses Are Addressing Negative Employee Experience

After a successful first day, VISION 2022 participants gathered for a new line-up of sessions featuring a diverse array of WorkForce Software experts, partners, and customer speakers. It was a day buzzing with activity, leaving attendees excited for what’s to come at VISION 2023.

Here’s a look into what we learned on day two of VISION 2022: The Experience Conference.

The Future of Work and Employee Experience

Charting the course for the future of work begins with understanding the obstacles and needs of today’s employees. Karen Stevens, Managing Director of Career Mobility and Experience at Accenture, knows this firsthand. Closing the last day of VISION 2022, Karen shared how Accenture uses lessons learned throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to imagine innovative ways of working and open new doors for the modern workforce. Gathering data and input from external sources, business leaders, and their employees, Accenture formed a comprehensive view of what motivates employees to stay and build their careers with their organizations. Accenture discovered that hybrid work environments delivered more flexibility to their employees while providing new ways for their business to engage, reach goals, and build greater meaning in the workplace. These results led Accenture to introduce its omni-connected experience model. More than simply remote, hybrid, or in-office work, this model aims to create new ways to connect with clients and develop a sense of belonging for employees through empathetic and receptive leadership.
