“Today, the idea of being able to work from anywhere in the world effectively is something virtually every company is trying to master; whereas, five years ago, it was only leading and more innovative companies who were thinking in that way.”

- Ephraim Freed, employee experience leader; Customer Success Manager at Workplace by Facebook

In just over five years since DWG’s Digital Workplace Impact podcast first launched, the world has grappled with a pandemic, seen fantastic technological advancements and experienced a new era of hybrid working. Through all of this, there has been an acceleration in the humanization of work.

For this milestone 100th episode, host Nancy Goebel chats once again with one of our very first podcast guests, employee experience leader, Ephraim Freed. Together, they re-visit the theme of that first episode, Bring yourself to work: how and why individuality is set to thrive in the workplace, moving on to explore employee experience today, what’s changed and how individuality can still thrive in an ever-changing world of work.

Today, flexibility in work is top of mind and hybrid working has created the opportunity for greater diversity, equity and inclusion. Leading-edge thinking from five years ago is now the ‘every day’ for many, with increasing opportunities to bring your true self to work. And, if we look to tomorrow, what can we learn from the fundamentals and past experiences to help us to further develop employee-centric digital workplaces for the future?

Sit back for a highly entertaining conversation that takes a look at what’s new, what’s through and at what could be needed next in the essential digital workplace.
