Create Meaningful Employee Experiences with Design Thinking for HR

Get this step-by-step guide and start improving your Employee Experience confidently right away!

The challenge of dealing with complexity

Working on the Employee Experience can be an exciting yet pretty complex task. We need to take care of many variables at the same time! Involving stakeholders' and people's needs, making sure that solutions align with the business goals and be conscious that whatever we do matches the unique culture and employer brand of the organisation. Puff!

Traditional HR approaches won't help
They fall short in dealing with this level of complexity and do not involve employees in the design process of processes, programs and initiatives which leads to endless rework 😭 and a bad image for the HR Team.

Make your EX meaningful with a modern approach

With this online workshop we make it easier for People professionals to work on the employee experience using a structured, agile and employee-centric approach called Design Thinking.

We flipped it, twisted it and mixed it to adapt it to all things People related and created this step-by-step guide for you to create meaningful employee experience for your colleagues. 

(Psst... in case you don't know, Design Thinking is an agile approach that helps you uncover employees needs to design people processes strategically in a human-centric way)

Who is this Online Workshop for?

  • HR & People Experience Professionals who would like to take a modern approach to redesigning processes, programs and initiatives and empower their teams to do it
  • Employer Branding Professionals working in-house who would like to keep a good brand by fixing the employee experience with your stakeholders
  • Learning & Development Professionals who would like to offer learning opportunities that are relevant for their colleagues at every point of their journey in the company
  • HR Consultants looking to help their clients with a modern, structured and creative approach that brings tangible results in a short amount of time 
  • Employer Branding Consultants interested in extending their services with strategic advise about what to improve in the EX for clients for clients to keep a good reputation

Let's hear from...

That's Andrew, the Lead of the Candidate Experience Team at N26! He is talking about our 2 days Employee Experience training in which this Online Workshop is based on.

How this Online Workshop works?

So, this is not...

another boring online class with someone random person talking over slides πŸ™…β€β™‚οΈ (Full disclosure: there is 1 slide!). It is not another cheap high-level courses in which you are left thinking "how do I do this?"

This course is an interactive workshop.
We call it a PlaySprint because you sprint through all the stages of Design Thinking, working with your team in a playful yet insightful way. You can invite up to 3 people to learn with you!

Why do this Playsprint?

For us, learning is doing and reflecting about it.
Other courses just show superficial theory, here you learn by working on a real challenge guided by videos and templates. Plus you get lifetime access to follow this step-by-step guide whenever you work with your team or clients. 

Time commitment ⏱
It is a self-paced course, so you choose how fast to go. 3-4 hours of time should be sufficient. You can also do it in multiple sessions.

Certificate? of course!

It comes in the right format to share in Linkedin and other Social Media. Pretty isn't it? 🀩

What our Playsprinters are saying...

Heja, we are EX Lab!

The first Employee Experience Design Laboratory in Berlin. 

We are innovation coaches ready to challenge People Teams to work differently. We've trained 800+ people in Design Thinking and co-created internal processes and services with corporates and startups to empower employees to unleash their full potential.

Now some name dropping because apparently it helps: we've worked with NestlΓ© HQ, World Food Program, Lufthansa, Blinkist, N26, Taxfix and hopefully you :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Team Experience or Solo Class?

This course is actually a team workshop because building remarkable Employee Experiences is always a team effort. Also, learning together is much easier...and fun! However you can run through the online workshop alone and then do it with your team whenever you feel ready. 

Is it limited access?⏰

Not at all! you get lifetime access to all videos and templates for you to revisit whenever you want.

Remote Ready? Sure!

You can do this online workshop with your remote team dispersed all over the world. All you need is a conferencing tool with screen share and a Mural account (you can get a 30 days free trial). We also have a Jamboard template!

So, what's in it for you?
