Enterprise Knowledge to Host Upcoming Webinar on Employee 360 Views

Headshots of each of the panelists and the moderator who will be participating in the webinar

Enterprise Knowledge COO Joe Hilger will moderate a webinar, The Art of Developing Valuable Employee Journeys, jointly hosted by EK and Semantic Web Company (SWC). 

The webinar will examine an emerging approach called Enterprise 360 – where organizations can implement enterprise knowledge graphs to achieve 360-degree views of business relating to customers, employees, products, and services. Specifically, Employee 360 creates a centralized view of all relevant knowledge related to an employee’s journey, such as the recruiting, onboarding, and learning and development (L&D) processes, employee retention, and employee work experience, to improve visibility into all aspects of employee content and data, resulting in improved employee experiences and learning, as well as greater organizational alignment and decision-making. 

The webinar will feature a panel of four speakers who will share their experiences implementing solutions around Employee 360, advanced knowledge graph technologies, and the business value it brings to employees and organizations.

The online webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, 12:00pm – 1:00pm EDT. Register for the webinar here
