A new era in managing our global workforce

The pandemic gave employees the chance to reexamine not only where they want to work, but the role of work in their lives. 


Expectations of work are fast evolving

Each person wants to be empowered to do what they do best, treated as key stakeholders, acknowledged, and have their needs met.


Command and control isn’t working

Legacy ways of managing teams harm productivity, drive down engagement, and make it challenging to retain and hire employees.

Join EX designers from leading organizations


EX Design the Excellent way


A New Way to Approach Employees’ Relationship to Work

Leaders are grappling with shifting external economic, political, and social challenges, which in turn influence public perceptions and impact how employees are engaging with their work.

At Excellent, our vision is to make Work better for everyone. We believe that when individuals thrive at work, organizations prospect and communities flourish.

Employee Experience (EX) is the way forward, which is why we have developed the world's first EX Design school offering a certification program.

“We’re firm believers in Employee Experience Design. It’s clear that if our employees’ needs are better met, they do better work and create better outcomes for our businesses.”


Laura Faith (she / her), Sr. Director, HRBP-Tech & People Experience


“Employee experience isn’t just the ‘moments that matter’ like onboarding or promotions, it’s also understanding the lived experiences of your people… their relationships with managers; their experience of the tools and systems they use to do their jobs; the impact of life moments; and whether they feel listened too.”


Jane Roques-Shaw, Dentsu


“EX Design has transformed our approach to project management and we’re seeing our teams energized by their work and the outcomes they’re creating. Our team members are deeply resonating with what we’re designing and delivering!”
