A guide to creating successful employee experiences using our available tools
Who is this guide for?
An organization’s success is dependent on successful managers who contribute to a positive employee experience, and HR plays a key role in enabling those managers. The future of work is a world where the employee experience is co-created between the people team, managers, and employees. By building a strong partnership, you have an opportunity to create a positive ‘ripple effect’ of change at every level of your organization. But to do this, employees need the right tools to be able to take initiative and contribute to your organization’s success.
To amplify your employee experience, employees, enabled by your team’s work, improve their own experience through:
developing and refining skills
having meaningful 1-on-1s
creating aligned goals
learning faster through continuous feedback.
Culture Amp created a unique collection of easy-to-implement capabilities to do just that.
"The big initiative that I had in 2021 was manager training. We did a ton of research of meeting with different managers figuring out what skills they wanted to develop.
…it’s been really useful to have Culture Amp as a tool that managers and our folks can use for a variety of different things. Folks are going into Culture Amp multiple times a week to do 1-on-1s, to do Skills Coach [Courses], [to use] Playbooks. It just becomes a regular tool that they use.”
– Haley Hammond, Learning and Development Manager, M1

Skills Coach and Playbooks
Skills Coach is a skill-based learning tool for managers that delivers engaging micro-content directly through Slack, Microsoft Teams, or email. Created in partnership with LifeLabs Learning, Skills Coach helps drive new behaviors to transform managers and employees by teaching them the important skills they need.
Managers can use Playbooks as a standalone library of ideas, videos and downloadable resources and bookmark their favorite ideas to implement or refer back to later. Content written by Culture Amp’s People Scientists and partners like LifeLabs Learning, have helped train thousands of managers across the world.

One of the most powerful ways to enhance performance and drive success is through the effective use and alignment of goals. Goals form the backbone of the performance management and employee development processes and are one of the most important motivational tools positively affecting performance in organizations.

One of the top five reasons employees leave a company is the inability to learn and grow. Feedback allows managers to help employees align their skills or competencies to career needs while also accelerating business change. Employees can easily give and request feedback on core skills on an ongoing basis directly in their flow of work.
