Speaker: Patricia Jesperson, EmployeeEXP
Patricia Jesperson is Chief Curiosity Officer, EmployeeEXP, and co-Author of newly re-released, Reversing the Ostrich Approach to Diversity: Pulling your head out of the sand. As well, a recent article in TLNT, Human-Centered HR in Today’s Business Environment illustrates her philosophy on outcomes-based HR integration. With more than 25 years working on the people-side of the business, she specializes in working with employers to create better Employee Experience outcomes.
As the curious type, she has spent the majority of her career exploring how to maximize the talent experience with an emphasis on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and Total Rewards. This drive for exploring “what if’s” enables her deliver custom content as well as EmployeeEXP proprietary models to help her clients attract, retain, develop and engage talent. Examples include: The EmployeeEXP 8 x 9 Box Communication AnalysisTM, a re-imagined/re-purposed 9-Box that invites organizations to explore their approach to communicating key programs to increasingly diverse talent. It asks the question, “How confident are you that what you spend on Employee Experience is aligned efficiently to attract, retain, and engage today’s diverse talent?” She also introduced The Inclusion MatrixTM (IM), which elevates the conversation from traditional DEI education to creating inclusive and engaged leaders.
Believing that one must continue to learn to keep current, she seizes opportunities to always-be-learning through her teaching as a professor in Augsburg University’s MBA program and her Board work e.g. Human Resource Executive Forum Board, Augsburg University Alumni Board, Chair of the Workforce Development and Education Policy Committee for the MN Chamber, and Director of Diversity Inclusion for SHRM MN State Council.
