JOB SUMMARY

Job summary
Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

ABOUT THE ROLE
The Workplace Experience Program Manager will support the growing portfolio of Workplace Experience (WX) by ideating, planning and executing on innovative programming that includes brand activations, hub-based experiences, and neighborhood impact efforts in collaboration with cross-functional teams and/or community partners. With particular attention to our distinctive well-being strategy, the Workplace Experience Program Manager will identify opportunities and develop processes to accelerate implementation and adoption of related programming globally.

ABOUT THE TEAM
Workplace Design & Experience (WDX) is a creative incubator positioned within the People & Places organization (HR/Workplace Real Estate & Facilities) leading efforts to reimagine our internal brand, develop inspiring and highly collaborative workspaces, and deliver innovative experiences that draw employees back to our hubs and fuel meaningful connections with colleagues around the globe. WDX is at the forefront of the future of work at Audible while also shaping the rapidly-evolving human experience of work through comprehensive strategies on well-being. We are a small but agile team of Creatives and creative thinkers who continually imagine and invent, both inside Audible and outside in our surrounding Newark neighborhood and the global communities in which we operate.

ABOUT YOU
You articulate the possible and move fast to make it real - a self-starter capable of taking initiative with minimal direction. By embracing ambiguity and connecting dots across teams and functions, you are able to solve for complex issues with both creativity and efficiency. No idea is too big and no task is too small - as a self-motivated organizer and problem-solver, you have a breadth of experience in defining and implementing new processes to operationalize and scale programs with measurable gains in engagement. You are an exceptional communicator with the ability to convey intricate information in a clear, concise manner. You have proven success in program and event management (virtual, in-person, hybrid) and have achieved this with a generosity of spirit and collaboration that brings many to the table and celebrates the efforts of all.

As Workplace Experience Program Manager, you will...
  • Create, coordinate and execute culture-forward initiatives, activations and recurring programming both inside and outside Audible to drive employment engagement, global connectivity and community impact.
  • Study and draw inspiration from culture, technology and evolving workplaces to ensure delivery of programs and activations on the cutting edge and in alignment with talent attraction goals and new ways of working.

  • Cultivate collaboration to drive outcomes among various cross-functional teams including HR, Facilities & Events, Global Corporate Affairs/Communications, TechOps and the Global Center for Urban Development.
  • Build relationships with employees and stakeholders in various regions, ranging in level to expand WX projects and initiatives globally.
  • Grow employee engagement with improved access to activations and opportunities by effectively leveraging new communications platforms (Simpplr) and delivering/maintaining a comprehensive calendar solution.
  • Market WX initiatives by drafting communications, presenting and facilitating on a variety of topics to inform broad audiences across the company.
  • Manage events and activations from development to debrief - e.g., kick-off and planning, run of show, promotion and registration, staffing and resources, follow-up and reporting.
  • Maintain the WX budget, including detailed financial updates with forecasts versus actuals, examining risks and opportunities, and driving recommendations on optimizing spend.
  • Define and track engagement metrics to ensure WX resources are allocated to successfully deliver against goals and continue to delight our most valuable asset, our people.
