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.

Creating a positive, meaningful and impactful Employee Experience starts with an outside-in perspective, i.e. focusing on how employee perceive their own experience rather than how the organization perceives the experience of their employees.

Adopting an employee-centric approach is easier for companies that already have a customer-centric mindset. These companies understand that continuous testing, iteration, obsession for customer/employee feedback is the foundation for developing a winning EX.

According the Kincentric’s recent report, “with a ‘never done,’ agile approach, companies can ensure successful delivery of the employee experience that unlocks the power of people and teams to accelerate organizational success.”

“High-performing cultures come from highly engaged employees gaining meaningful experiences throughout the employee lifecycle – all the moments of inspiration, leadership, recognition, development and transition”, according to the report. Identifying moments that matter for your employees, designing an EX strategy to address these moments that matter will elevate your Employee Experience.

Ken Oehler is a Senior Partner, Global Culture & Engagement Practice Leader at Kincentric, and co-author of Kincentric’s report “Create an eXtraordinary Employee eXperience – Global Employee eXperience Report 2019”.

Today with Ken we talk about:
- What is his definition of the Employee Experience.
- How to design an EX that aligns with business needs and accelerates performance.
- How to define and measure moments that matter.
- How to deliver an impactful EX.
- How can organizations unlock the power of people through EX.
- How can organizations elevate their EX.
