What makes a great employee experience?
To create a positive employee experience, it’s important to consider the entire employee journey, as people’s motivations change over time.
For example, long-term employees may appreciate flexible working options and a competitive discounts and benefits package. Whereas new joiners may value mentorship and career development opportunities.
Listening to your employees and understanding want they want, wherever they are in their journey is an essential component of a good employee experience. Tools, such as polls and surveys are useful methods of collecting feedback and learning more about your colleagues.
Additionally, introducing an employee experience platform that holds all your benefits, discounts, and wellbeing resources in one place can provide data and insight on what features your employees use the most and help generate new ideas for improving employee experience.

Employee Experience Platform FAQs
What is an employee experience platform?
An employee experience platform is a type of software that helps you build a team of highly engaged employees.
These platforms act as a centralised system where your employees can access all of their benefits, in addition to a selection of other resources, which may include important company comms, wellbeing content, and perks.
HR leaders use employee experience platforms to build a strong company culture, which boosts employee morale and wellbeing. Introducing bespoke employee experiences such as rewards and perks, not only makes employees happier but also helps stretch their salaries further, so they can spend more money on the things they enjoy.
When looking for an employee engagement platform it's important that it seamlessly integrates with your current HR systems. With Perkbox you get access to enhanced admin features, which include Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) integrations so you easily onboard and offboard employees.
What does an employee experience platform include?
An employee experience platform has a range of features that help you build a better workplace culture and team experience. Often, they include an app where employees can access important company comms and benefits, such as discount packages and wellbeing resources.
In order to drive adoption of the platform, it's important to consider how it will feed into your business goals. For example, if your organisation spans several countries you may want to reduce reliance on team leaders to cascade important updates. So, in this instance, you should choose a platform that includes advanced communication features.
Perkbox makes communicating company information easier with a range of templated or custom cards that are visible to all of your employees on the app. Link resources, such as town hall recordings and important policy documents to each card so that everyone has easy access to business updates.
What is the best employee experience platform?
The best employee experience platforms contain many features that encompass all elements of the employee experience. Ideally, they include resources that specifically help maintain a person's mental, physical, and financial wellbeing.
Most organisations also tend to also choose platforms that have a consistent look and feel regardless of where a person logs in. However, companies with employees in different countries may use multiple systems with separate access points. In some cases, this works well, but because different people are using systems that lack a single user interface this can increase the risk of confusion and a poor user experience.
If a unified employee experience is important to you, Perkbox is a global benefits and rewards platform that your people can use wherever they are in the world. You can customise the look and feel of the platform and also add values to ensure all employees are in alignment with your culture.
