How Checkout.com turns listening to employee voice into real-life impact

About the event

As Checkout.com (CKO) continues to grow at super fast speed, being on track to double to 1700 employees this year, employee engagement is an increasingly key driver of our success. A focus on the employee voice ensures that our people are heard in the decisions we make so we can scale our culture and employee experience as we expand.

This along with the advent of remote working and digitally dispersed teams means we have to be very intentional about getting feedback from our people and acting on this.

Join us on Wednesday 2 June at 08:00 PT, 11:00 ET 16:00 BST. Tito will offer a short talk on why employee engagement is so important to CKO, and what they’ve learned about turning colleague insights into tangible action, followed by Q&A and optional networking.
