Feedback Touchpoints 🎯 

We have been slowly but surely shifting away from the traditional concept of employee engagement to a more inclusive and broader concept of employee experience. 💫 

How can we address this shift? 🤔 

One way to start is by creating feedback touchpoints within your employees’ lifecycle. Communication with your employees begins long before they are hired and onboarded, making it essential to adopt an “always-on feedback” approach. 🟢 

This approach also helps you stay aware of employee sentiments, allowing you to identify and fix any improvements.  

🧑‍💼 Let’s follow the journey of Sarah, a candidate looking for a job, to see how these touchpoints work in practice. ➡️ 

  1. 🔍 Recruitment and Hiring: Sarah is actively looking for a new marketing position. She comes across a job posting at your company. The language used in the job ad is inclusive and welcoming which encourages her to apply.
