Today, organizations are investing in programs to improve employee experiences. At times these come in the form of perks like gym memberships, break room snacks, free lunches, and on-site massages. These are certainly a step in the right direction, and go a long way towards making an employee feel welcome and more comfortable in the workplace. But the day to day experience is still a cause for concern for many employees. This is because employee experience (EX), as a discipline, does not belong to just one team.
