And that is why we advise tackling the employee journey in steps. Optimising the pre-, in- and post-employment experience is a continuous process. It requires a motivated team of HR and Communication professionals, working closely together, and a structured approach based on a clear People Vision and clear priorities.

Creating a great employee experience is about trying things while taking employee insights into account. An employee journey scan can help with this because it identifies the areas in which employees feel insufficiently equipped and where the opportunities lie.

The Antoni van Leeuwenhoek hospital was the first of our clients to do the employee journey scan. If you want to follow in their footsteps, just email Sascha Becker or Wenda Bolink for more information. They and the rest of the PROOF team are here to help you divide up the elephant and make a great start to the new year.

We wish you a wonderful 2019,

Tata Steel Leadership Conference
When Tata Steel and thyssenkrupp announced their intended joint venture, they asked PROOF to set up internal communications about it.
