Design Thinking

 

Design thinking is using a designer’s thought process to solve problems. Initially, it was used only in design, but its effectiveness has led to it being used in different skill areas. It is essentially a solution-based approach to problem solving. An HR can use design thinking to understand the factors influencing employee experience and work towards enhancing the same.

  That apart, here are the other steps you need to follow to boost employee experience:
  • Seeking feedback from employees is the easiest way to determine how they feel. Informal check-ins are often more helpful in checking the pulse of the employees than rigid performance management systems

  • Compiling the problems and arranging them in a descending order of importance can help ensure the crucial ones are addressed first

  • Deriving solutions by collating employee feedback and focussing primarily on their overall growth

  • Developing solution prototypes to each aspect of an employee problem and testing them to determine which is most effective

  • Combining the solutions to different problems to create and implement an ultimate strategy to enhance employee experience
