Home launches Roundel 2020

23rd January 2020

Bristol-based employee experience agency Home launches a new, in-depth report into the employee experience trends and priorities for the year ahead.

As the war for talent rages, it’s safe to say that employee experience is the battle-ground for employees’ hearts and minds. More and more organisations are bringing together their internal communication teams, HR departments and employee engagement experts to create cross-functional employee experience teams, working at the leading edge of business engagement. But this new area has been underserved by in-depth, evidence-based research – until now.

This January, employee experience specialists Home launch Roundel 2020, a free guide to the trends and priorities in employee experience. Free to download, the report was created after gaining insight from a global set of employee experience professionals. It also includes case studies and commentary from brands at the leading-edge of employee experience, as well as insight from the Home team based on their 38 years’ of experience.

Commenting on the launch, Home said, ‘It’s been such an incredible experience pulling this report together, speaking and hearing from so many passionate people from all over the globe that care about what they do and how they do it has been overwhelmingly inspiring! We believe Roundel 2020 gives great insight into the trends, challenges and priorities businesses face going into 2020, it’s a must for anyone that cares about their business and the employee experience. Roundel 2020 is written by people who care, for people who care… We’ve been delighted by the initial feedback to date, clearly there was a huge appetite for it. We’re so proud to have produced the Roundel, excited to share the results and can’t wait to start the next one.’

One of the contributors, Martin Fitzpatrick, Senior Internal Communications Business Partner said:

“Creating truly better places to work will require us to work collaboratively across our businesses. People from a variety of functions and disciplines participated in the research and 75% felt that their CEO would agree with their priorities. So, it seems that finally we’re all waking up to the fact that providing people with a meaningful connection to work has far more impact than shiny newsletters, free gyms or new e-learning platforms.

Perhaps then, 2020 is the year of purpose? Of all the trends highlighted in this research, perhaps the most exciting is the fact that embedding a purpose-driven culture was chosen as the number one priority by most respondents. It’s a lofty ambition.”

Aimed squarely at employee experience specialists, HR and internal communications teams, employee engagement professionals and anyone whose role means they have to make things work for employees, Roundel 2020 is an invaluable resource for teams planning their 2020 priorities as well as anyone interested in an overview of this vibrant industry, which touches the lives of so many people.
