Intrapreneurship to entrepreneurship: why employee experience matters

Presentation from DEX 2018


Although many organisations create an employee experience with the same basic technology building blocks, the end result for people using that technology can vary wildly. In this session Ben examines how to create a winning employee experience formula for innovation with both social and un-social technology.

The session will cover:

  • How not to build an innovation system
  • When (and when not to) to use social technologies for innovation
  • Why purpose-built social innovation tools improve employee experience
