Full line-up announced for exchange – the employee experience event

2018 ExChange panel discussion

HR’s most insightful event releases its impressive speaker list for 7th May 2020

ExChange – the employee experience event – has today announced its full roster of presenters, with speakers from all areas of HR, workplace culture, workplace diversity and employee experience leading the way in the day’s discussions.

The event – jointly hosted by the Employee Engagement Alliance and world-leading HR technology provider, Benefex – brings together the industry’s leading lights to discuss the best ways to create, manage, and develop employee experiences in the 2020s. Attendees will hear the latest insights and practical advice for tackling today’s workplace culture issues, and learn how to develop strategies for taking their organisation’s employee experience to the next level.

The day will take place on the Ohana floor of the Salesforce Tower (formerly Heron Tower) in London, offering sweeping views of the city in the tranquil, comfortable setting of a business with a market-leading employee experience.

Ruth Dance, host of ExChange and Managing Director of the Employee Engagement Alliance said, “The best way to improve your workplace culture is holistically, by creating employee experiences that meet and exceed your people’s needs from their first day. For our second ExChange, we’re bringing together some of the biggest names in the industry, and they’ll be showing us all how to transform employee experiences for the coming decade.”

ExChange speaker, and Founder & CEO of Benefex, Matt Macri-Waller remarked, “This is going to be a fascinating event and I’m delighted to take part alongside like-minded business leaders and HR professionals who can see change in the world of work and want to take their organisations into the future. But we won’t just focus on what’s coming in the distant future; there’s plenty of take-home advice that we can all start using right away, and that’s really exciting.”

Leaders and innovators from the world of employee experience will spend the day sharing critical insights with CEOs, HR Directors, Chief People Officers, and Communication and Employee Engagement specialists.
