Enabling the Team
UXDX EMEA 2022
Slides

Companies are competing with each other for top technical and in-demand skills, and with the shrinking size of future generations, the technical skills shortage is only going to worsen, resulting in high turnover and skilled employees having their pick of roles, leaving companies to scramble in order to fill the gaps. In this presentation, Alexandra will focus on the case study of building out a UX Research team from scratch within a subsidiary of US Bank, where she hired all entry-level and junior roles with the intent of mentorship and training. She will make a case for other companies on why this strategy has a significant return on investment. During the presentation, Alexandra will walk through:
-Her hiring process mentorship-management style
-Key insights she gained from the incoming Gen Z workforce
-The personal and business benefits she experienced by hiring a predominantly untrained team.
