One of the hottest topics in HR is rethinking the employee experience as companies across industries look to reshape the workplace to create the experiences that can help to attract, engage, and retain key talent. One of the key tools that HR leaders are using to identify and reshape aspects of the employee experience is design thinking. While originally developed in the context of customer experience and development of new products, design thinking also serves as an effective tool and set of guiding principles for HR leaders to identify meaningful moments that impact and engage employees in root cause analysis and brainstorming of alternative solutions, and in effectively driving change management around new initiatives.
