In today’s increasingly dynamic work environment, organizations must effectively source and leverage people insights in order to attract and retain talent. Listening to how employees feel at work is key to understanding, measuring, and improving the employee experience.
According to Mercer’s 2021 Global Talent Trends Study, five aspects of the employee experience that have changed the most due to the pandemic include how to work flexibly, manage/coach employees we don’t see every day, onboard, work and collaborate in distributed or virtual networks, and hire.
Gaining actionable insights – at the right time – is the key to building a stronger workforce.

The data used to improve the employee experience need not be limited to an annual employee engagement survey. Leading organizations are tuned into the experiences of their workforce, listening at scale throughout the employee lifecycle, including key moments like onboarding, life events, and transitions. Ongoing listening enables you to make important connections between the various experiences your employees have at work and your organization’s performance outcomes. Asking the right questions at the right times allows you to design interventions and continuously enhance the employee experience.
