We are a global network of people building a better Human Experience at the organizations where we work. Our network was formed to share ‘what works’ and to shape the future direction of EX. We are EX Heads and others doing People Analytics, Design Thinking, Journey Mapping, and creating Physical and Digital Workspace – in a variety of applications.
We meet live and virtually to learn from each other and go deeper into the disciplines of EX that drive a better workplace experience and better CX. We share our EX stories, learn new skills, share new tech, get inspired by what others are doing and co-create ‘what’s next’ for EX.
Most EX Heads are doing their role for the first time. Both new and more seasoned EX Heads express a strong desire to meet others with their same role, and learn how they are building EX in their organizations. We invite you to join our global Employee Experience (EX) Leaders Network – a group of founding EX-Pioneers and EX Leaders from across industries and geographies – and together let’s promote and shape EX.
The EX Leaders Network is a Kennedyfitch initiative.
Our goal is threefold
To promote the development of EX as a new discipline and sustainable way of working – across all the functions that touch EX – discovering where and how people enjoy and do their best work in your business context.
To develop this generation of new EX leaders – people who have never done this role before, learning from EX Pioneers and acquiring expertise in Design Thinking, Agile/Scrum/Sprint, Behavior Science, Analytics, Journey Mapping, etc.
To help companies achieve faster growth, more profit, and become disruptive, using EX and CX to transform your culture and business model, and develop new ways of working.
Scaling Culture for growth
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky was adamant about scaling their Culture. In 2016, when new EX Head Mark Levy brought together the groups touching Culture (Recruiting, Events, Facilities, Real Estate, Design, etc.) to create an End-to-End journey for employees as they had done for customers, Brian was ecstatic because ‘it wasn’t HR!’ Airbnb has used EX to change the way they interview, to judge whether someone is joining for the right reason, assessing how they fit with Airbnb values and their approach to life and work.
GE recognized that EX was a pathway to improving productivity and getting the best out of their people. Paul Davies, GE’s Head of EX, spent his first 100 days visiting other companies e.g. Airbnb, Disney, Deloitte and Brooklyn Navy Yards, and saw that everyone is doing EX differently, according to what makes sense for them. At GE, they focused on designing the digital and physical space as well as the Culture, putting the employees at the center of what the company does.
Personalization to Scale
Tom Stachura is IBM’s Head of Workforce Strategy and People Analytics. Tom has used Analytics the past 2 years to build insights around 3 main personas (IBM’er, Manager and Upline) and drive ‘Personalization to Scale’. The key question was, ‘How to give our 35K managers visibility of the data they need to make their own key decisions that could drive the strategy?’ Tom helped identify key kinds of people at risk for leaving and give managers decision data to help them retain top talent.
