The Challenge 

Qualtrics is in the business of helping organizations manage experiences, and Employee Experiences are at the core of what organizations do and are. Overwhelmingly, work is carried out through technology, be it a laptop, desktop or mobile device. The use of collaborative office-spaces is also rapidly changing; even pre-pandemic organizations were rethinking how spaces could best foster collaboration and innovation amongst employees. 

Our customers need new solutions to measure and understand the workplace experience they are providing, both via the digital and the physical workplace. There is high demand for these solutions amongst the IT and executive community, which Qualtrics is uniquely positioned to deliver on. Our XM platform offers unmatched breadth to gather and act on feedback in the flow of work, and our close relationship with SAP gives us access to technology experiences in the world’s largest organizations.
