The Employee Journey project at Cartier involved participants from different departments of their global organization. This was essential in order to allow the co-creation of shared solutions. As a result, in a learning-by-doing manner, participants were guided through a Design process that enabled them to visualize future scenarios. The project was executed on a global level, involving teams in the Paris, New York and Amsterdam offices. Working with a human-centered perspective resulted in more extensive changes than imagined at the start: aside from redesigning the physical working space, we embedded employees’ emotions and attitude into the new design.

Our collaboration with Coca-Cola was an interesting case of Design Thinking in HR. DesignThinkers facilitated the redesign of Coca-Cola HR; the employee ecosystem. How can we demonstrate a human touch in the digital world we work in? We facilitated Design Councils consisting of Coca-Cola employees and Coca-Cola Human Resource professionals. This was a co-creation effort to explore the Coca-Cola Global business Services eco-system and opportunity areas for improving services and design improved Service Scenarios especially for hiring and on boarding of new Coca-Cola employees. The main outcome is a set of Prototypes & Roadmaps on how to implement the Pilots.

Employee Experience Assessment

A lightweight approach to provide shared insight in your HR performance and discover immediate opportunities for improvement.

A robust HR or EX strategy begins with an inspiring vision that must be translated into a strategy targeting the most impactful HR challenges. Often, maintaining HR processes consumes most of the effort and focus, risking tunnel vision or HR blind spots. The EX Assessment is a digital survey covering the entire HR spectrum, emphasizing the experiences of the people involved. The assessment results are delivered visually, highlighting key insights and benchmarking against similar organizations and best-in-class EX performance. This foundation helps refine your HR and EX strategy, planning focused initiatives for maximum impact.

Our approach begins with an intake session, in which we collaboratively determine survey participants, ensuring the inclusion of key HR functions, senior leadership, and employees from various organizational areas. The survey is then deployed digitally, with optional in-depth interviews providing additional contextual insights. Finally, we facilitate a strategic session to assess the results and ensure they inform an effective employee experience (EX) strategy.
