Welcome to Season 3 of Cruising Altitude, the podcast to help you deliver exceptional employee experiences at scale. This season, we’re introducing our new host, Nicole Alvino, founder and CEO of Firstup.

The mission of our podcast is to help you deliver irresistible employee experiences so you are empowered to retain and grow your top people, deliver a high performance organizational culture, and ultimately move your business forward.

This is hard at any size organization, but for those organizations with 30,000 employees or above, this brings additional challenges and opportunities to really elevate that employee experience. 

We have an incredible lineup of guests who have managed employee experience with organizations over 30,000 people. They will share their best practices on how to engage from the back office to the frontline, how to leverage generative AI for good, and how to continue to use data to deliver on personalized experiences at scale. 

I’m so excited for this season. Let’s get ready to take off for Season 3 of Cruising Altitude!
