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.

Dec 1, 2020

In today’s altered landscape of COVID and social unrest, the shift in how and where we work has created a critical need to redesign the employee experience. With boundaries between life and work removed, and with persistent health and safety concerns for many employees, traditional employee engagement strategies are not enough to understand the whole-person experience.

The context for work has changed, and there is an obligation for companies to provide something greater, act responsibly, and give back. With heightened social uncertainty and stress, workers expect their employers to understand who they are as a whole person. This includes their personal pursuits and lives, and they expect those organizations to address important topics including social justice, environmental sustainability and community involvement.

My eX Podcast guests this month are two brothers, Pat and Dan Riley. The co-founders of RADICL—serial technology entrepreneurs and brothers Dan and Patrick Riley—sold their employee engagement technology company, Modern Survey, to human resources firm Aon in 2016. Both became partners at Aon after the acquisition, leading the successful integration of the Modern Survey platform into Aon’s global business as well as providing strategy consulting to clients around the world. Since leaving Aon, Dan and Patrick have been advising and working with HR technology companies, and co-produced the award-winning Hollywood film Tuscaloosa (2020).

Today with Pat and Dan we talk about the need to redesign the employee experience by focusing on the whole person.
