Our Total-EX Framework helps HR leaders optimize their organizations' employee experience (EX), diversity, and
people analytics capabilities by focusing on three key areas: culture, technology, and physical space. These
EX-capabilities are key differentiators and catalysts to drive innovation, increase customer satisfaction, find
and hire the best people, make work more engaging, and improve overall performance!
We help our clients create employee experiences that are more than processes for unlocking human potential; but are also critical to building organizations resilient to risk, and fit for the future with sustained business performance. We have built the frameworks, expertise, and network of delivery experts to ensure the full value of projects are captured.
Like a doctor that asks questions about your symptoms, before prescribing the appropriate medication. Our process requires an assessment and analysis of your current employee experience. In the pre-diagnosis phase, we start with a stakeholder survey, while working in parallel with your team to define the project scope, EX requirements, and how success will be measured.
Our flexible, 4-step framework can be applied to variety of culture, engagement, and EX challenges; but the following service areas are where our clients continue to see the most impact.
Effective onboarding is driving component of retention, productivity, engagement, and profitability. Our
framework looks beyond traditional first, 30 days and looks at the onboarding and new-hire experience more
holistically during the initial 9 - 12 months of employment. We gather employee feedback, analyze "moments
that matter" and our experts work with you to develop actionable initiatives based on current people insights.
Our Total-EX Framework has been particularly effective when starting with the onboarding and new-hire phases of the employee lifecycle. By doing so, clients are able to optimize experience strategies for immediate business impact and lay the foundation for sustainable change with our Total-EX Roadmap.
