Are you a Digital Employee Experience trailblazer? The DEX Awards 2022

The pandemic-induced mass move to hybrid and remote work has placed emphasis on the importance of the digital experience – most specifically the employee’s digital experience.

Recent research by Gartner estimates that before 2025, over 50% of IT organizations will use DEX to help prioritize and measure digital initiative success. What does this look like? A focus on employee experiences and engagement, increase operational agility and automation, and secure employees regardless of location.

Providing an exceptional digital employee experience is no longer a luxury for organizations, it’s a necessity. And, as our latest research report highlights, 80% of all respondents say that DEX is now a key consideration within their enterprise’s digital transformation strategy. Not to mention, a further, 81% agree that those who don’t make DEX a board-level priority will fall behind their competitors.

We wanted to recognize the innovation that has taken place over the last year and highlight key industry trailblazers… But how?
