CHICAGO, IL – Rightpoint, a global experience leader and Genpact company, has been honored with the prestigious 2023 Microsoft US Partner of the Year Award for Modern Work: Employee Experience, in recognition of its Total Experience approach. This marks the second consecutive year that Rightpoint has been acknowledged by Microsoft for its exceptional work.
The company has also been named as a finalist in two worldwide categories, Employee Experience and Modern Workplace for Frontline Workers. These accolades highlight the company’s dedication to delivering exceptional results and its expertise in leveraging Microsoft’s technology to meet the evolving needs of clients.
“This accomplishment is a testament to our strong relationship with Microsoft,” said Ron Shamah, Chief Executive Officer at Rightpoint. “With US companies losing a staggering $700 billion annually due to employee attrition, investing in the employee and customer experience has become a pressing need. That’s why we prioritize delivering the Total Experience, recognizing the connection of customer satisfaction and employee engagement in driving overall organizational success.”
Rightpoint firmly believes that organizations must prepare for a workplace where generative AI and Microsoft Viva, an employee experience platform, create an environment in which employees can thrive and be more engaged and more productive. Generative AI will revolutionize the employee experience by enabling personalized and streamlined interactions. Microsoft Copilot for Viva will automate repetitive tasks, provide intelligent recommendations, and facilitate seamless communication and collaboration. The future of employee experience powered by generative AI and Microsoft Viva will enable organizations to transform employee engagement and business performance.
