Qualtrics announced Employee Experience ID, which gives organizations a unified view of their employee experience over time, including work preferences, engagement, performance and feedback. Qualtrics said the new product brings data into a single profile to give organizations a holistic view of their employee experience, and enables them to identify trends among similar groups of employees and actions they can take to boost engagement and productivity.  

Hiring for diversity is a high priority for 57% of talent leaders, eclipsing even the need to fill open positions, according to Findem’s 2022 Recruiting Trends Study. Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) also ranked as the top trend shaping recruitment, and over half of the executives plan to hire a diversity leader this year. Despite DEI’s high priority, barriers continue to impede the recruiting process.
