Show & Tell: Building a cross-functional steering committee to guide EX programming


Beth Kardong, Boston Scientific

How do you build bridges across HR, IT, Facilities, and Shared Services to guide Employee Experience efforts? Join Beth Kardong, Senior Manager of Employee Experience at Boston Scientific, as she shares how they’ve created a unique partnership between corporate functions to share accountability and prioritize Employee Experience efforts. She’ll share how IT, Facilities, and HR leaders jointly developed an Employee Experience strategy at Boston Scientific, including how they’ve created a shared vision and used it to identify key opportunities, break down departmental silos, and unlock new opportunities to grow empathy and employee-centric design skills within the organization. Learn what went well, what didn’t, and what’s next for a small team championing EX improvement across a 45,000-employee global ecosystem.
