Working with XPLOR, more specifically Lisa, has been one of the most valuable professional partnerships I’ve had in the past few years. As a subject matter expert in the employee experience, design and HR spaces, who also has a deep background in communications, transformation, innovation, and supporting senior leadership and other disciplines, Lisa is truly one of a kind.

Lisa is truly one of a kind.

Our clients say it best.

Kristin McDonald

The Coca-Cola Company

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on developing a strategic experience-centered practice and plan for a global organization that had traditionally not prioritized candidate and employee experience holistically. Lisa’s expertise and guidance were invaluable in accelerating our understanding and creating a practical employee-centered strategy that also achieved our business goals. Her ability to balance the needs of the organization with the needs of employees is truly remarkable. I highly recommend working with Lisa, regardless of where you are in your journey.

Lisa's expertise and guidance were invaluable.

Our clients say it best.

Jackie Blair

Rockwell Automation

Lisa was invaluable in accelerating my understanding of talent experience principles and best practices, and she connected me to the tools and resources I needed to stand up a cross-functional experience design practice within my organization quickly and effectively. Lisa is the go-to source if you’re trying to get your head around talent experience -- or if you’re trying to figure out why your existing approach isn’t working the way you think it should. She’s brilliant and no nonsense. I can’t wait to work with her again.

She's brilliant and no nonsense.

Our clients say it best.

Dobby Gibson

Land O Lakes

I had the extreme pleasure of working with Lisa Morris.  She was instrumental to our team and the development of our future alumni community and the experience strategy. Lisa’s extreme knowledge in research, strategy and experience design was critical to defining our alumni community experience and in making it a reality.  ​Her continued focus on delivering a meaningful experience for the community and to our business was always her main priority.

Our business was always her main priority.

Our clients say it best.

Becki Cedrone

The Coca-Cola Company

Lisa was great to work with and stayed in touch over the next year as we planned the 2021 conference. Her sense of humor and deep experience in Human-Centered Design were evident in her presentations.
