Join us at the leading-edge of the EX Movement
Pioneers & Global Thought Leaders in EX
As part of a multi-year study into the foundational elements of EX, WEEI began life as a research project in Shanghai in 2015. We have now shared our findings globally and introduced the EX concept to millions of people through prestigious publications and lectures.
Since 2018, we have been based out of the UK and our extensive real-world research culminated in the creation of our original Holistic Employee Experience (HEX) model, which was popularised in the 2019 book, Employee Experience, and by The Times. The HEX underpins our work, approach and business philosophy.
