    Leading the Shift from HR to Employee Experience: 

    How Airbnb's Mission and Values 

    Created Their Unique and Powerful Employee Brand

    We are excited to share that Mark Levy, former Global Head of Employee Experience of Airbnb, will be joining us for our Q3 program on Thursday, September 6th. Mark will share the Airbnb journey, creating a seamless employee and consumer experience, deploying technology in ways that increase purpose and human connection.

    Mark is a seasoned globally minded Employee Experience Leader who has chosen to work for big hearted companies and focus on how he and his team can unleash the talents and passions of a company’s employees. Early in his career, he worked with the likes of Best Buy, Levi Strauss & Company and Gap Inc. partnering with business leaders to support their HR needs including innovative ways to create a learning organization and ensure integration between work and life. Mark also spent two years living and working in Paris, France for Thomson/Technicolor.

    Most recently, Mark was the pioneer of designing the Employee Experience at Airbnb, which has since created significant changes in the way organizations globally are looking at expanding the HR function to focus on the entire employee journey. This group included traditional HR functions, in addition to broader teams focused on social impact, culture and workplace. Mark helped to further Airbnb’s mission “to create a world where you can belong anywhere,” by establishing the employee experience mission that employee’s feel they belong at Airbnb. Glassdoor recognized Mark and his team’s work by naming them the #1 Place to Work in 2016.

    Mark is now taking his learnings to consult with companies, from start ups to large global brands, to advise on how to evolve from HR to Employee Experience, how to create an integrated internal and external brand, how to bring the mission and values to life, and how to create a greater connection between the company and their employees, between employees, with the company’s customers, as well as the communities in which they operate.

    Location: Radisson Valley Forge - 1160 1st Ave, King of Prussia, PA 19406
