Employee Experience Expert,
ING
Netherlands

Anna Perrini


Anna has over 15 years of experience working in global companies in Switzerland and the Netherlands. She has held roles in internal communications and collaboration, change management, project management, and process improvement. Anna has combined all this knowledge and experience in her most recent role as an Employee Experience Expert at ING, merging it with another of her passions, Design Thinking. Addressing the "human experience" as a whole helps to break the silos, to think end-to-end, to be customer oriented, and to co-create solutions that have the power to move the needle. "Adopting a real Employee Experience perspective is not easy for a large company. It takes time and visionary leadership; you need to show valuable results, win trust, create engagement, and build sustainable and scalable solutions, but all the efforts are paying off".
