What is

Digital Employee Experience (DEX)?

Noun/ˈdijidl/ /emˈploiē/ /ˌikˈspirēəns/

Digital Employee Experience (DEX) – is an employee’s holistic experience with the digital workplace provided by IT. It is based on the performance of one’s device(s), applications, networks, and end-user sentiment. DEX is a concept that extends beyond IT—it is a key component of the modern Employee Experience and it relates closely to a company’s culture, Employee Engagement, Human Resources (HR), and ability to innovate.

Most Companies Struggle to Manage Digital Employee Experience

And that results in headaches for employees and IT alike. Employees want to make an impact for the business, but they keep suffering from the same slowdowns, crashes, and disruptions that hamper their productivity. IT teams want to help employees, but they’re overwhelmed by support tickets and lack the context they need to resolve issues quickly.

What Types of Issues Hinder Digital Employee Experience?

IT teams want to help facilitate the best employee experience possible. But in today’s era of rapid digital transformation and complex workplace technology, they’re constantly playing catch up. And with the rise of hybrid work and employees operating from a variety of devices and environments, it’s becoming even more challenging for IT to keep a grip on the digital workplace.

No matter how many times IT teams “fix” these common issues, they rear their ugly heads time and again and cause frustration among employees:

  • slow log-ins
  • application crashes
  • network slowdowns

“61% of respondents agree that IT downtime is an accepted norm
in their organization.”

When a high-volume of incidents occur, IT teams get flooded with support tickets out of the blue. Their efforts to resolve issues and communicate solutions to employees can take hours or days, causing major declines in company-wide productivity and employee morale.

“55% of employees admit they report only around half of their technology issues to the IT department.”

A large portion of IT issues are never reported by employees, which means IT teams either never discover them or discover them far too late – as employee’ frustration grows and their trust in their IT departments diminish.

“Just 56% of IT departments have visibility of the state of new technology rollouts.”
