eX Podcast


I’ve started this podcast because I believe that companies have to think of themselves as employment brands if they hope to attract and retain talent. B2E (Business to Employee) branding gives a real competitive advantage to organizations that have the desire to bring the EX to life.

This podcast brings a different lens to the employee experience: a brand and customer experience angle, rather than a traditional HR angle.

Our guests, all thought leaders and disruptors in the EX space in their own way, come to this show to debate, discuss and share best practices on the key components that foster employee engagement and strengthen company culture; and also to spark the conversation on how to create positive employee experiences.

In our episodes, we cover multiple topics that touch and impact the employee experience, such as:
- the key components of a positive employee experience
- office space design and its impact on the company’s culture
- the employee journey map
- how design thinking, collaboration and innovation are intertwined
- employer branding
- employee engagement tools and measurement
- the place of technology in the employee experience.

Mike Kelly is the co-founder and partner at Developer Town. As you will discover in the interview, Mike is a witty and brilliant leader who believes that designing employee experience is like designing customer experience – you’ve got to focus on the people and understand their needs.
Developer Town focuses on designing and developing cloud-based SaaS and mobile solutions, but is also known for its very unique work space and culture, both highlighted in publications such as Forbes magazine.

In this episode with Mike, you will learn:

- How intentional office space design brings the company culture to life.
- Why creating and maintaining culture is about testing and iterating, being agile, very much like software development.
- How designing employee experience is like designing customer experience – you’ve got to focus on the people and understand their needs.
- Finally we’ll learn about DeveloperTown’s own and meaningful definition of culture.
