Through people-centered design and innovation, XPLOR is reinventing the experience of work, shaping a future where work truly enriches the lives it touches
We are solely dedicated to enhancing people's experiences at work
We distinguish ourselves from typical people and management consulting firms, design agencies, and branding studios. Our exclusive mission revolves around employees (present, future, and former), for whom we specialize in crafting tailored, authentic moments and seamlessly integrated experiences — all thoughtfully designed to generate a meaningful impact for both individuals and businesses.
We've spent decades working on the 'inside' of organizations. We have figured out how to harness human-centered design approaches, strategy, data and systems thinking along with other disciplines including organization design, behavior change and agile methodology to innovate from the inside-out.
As world-leading experts in employee experience design, we apply creativity and bridge data-driven strategy, human-centered experience design and service design with world-class implementation capabilities to help organizations do more than think and talk about employee experiences. We help them take impactful action with intention.

As needed, we call upon other designers with expertise in disciplines such as industrial design, interaction design, UI, UX, and information architecture to support our clients. Together, we are a curious and humble team of rebel thinkers, meaningful makers, and devout practitioners of design craft, always eager to learn. We believe that every organization creates experiences for people, but all too often, these experiences are random or unplanned. At XPLOR, we are united in our commitment to unleashing the power of design to make an indelible impact on the quality of working lives.
