The Paradox Employee Experience Model™ applies a human-centered approach to talent attraction, retention, and engagement. The model is based on academic psychologists’ research about what humans need to thrive and applies this to the employee experience. We design a strategy for a compelling experience for the talent you need to achieve growth and impact.
The meaning you receive from this organization’s vision for the future and the impact of your work
The identity and belonging you receive by joining this organization of people
The security and future growth prospects you can expect from your experience with this organization
The control and influence you have over your own success and this organization’s success
“Your leadership and guidance through this process has been so important, and I believe it’s going to lead to some much needed progress”

Processes and systems that are fair and just for everyone enable individuals and organizations to succeed. We apply The Paradox Equitable Process Framework™ to all of the process design work we do because we think it’s critical to question what’s always been done and do it better. This framework helps challenge assumptions and redesign both talent and business processes to be fair for everyone, which increases talent and business results.
The five components of the framework are Remove Bias, Equal Access, Diverse Input, Consistent Application, Flexibility, and Transparent Assessment. When your team learns to evaluate and design processes through this lens, equitable operations are embedded into your business.
We know that the work doesn’t pause while you’re ramping up, especially during a growth phase. To get you over this hump, Paradox provides staff augmentation especially in the areas of human resources, organization development, and people operations to support your team’s bandwidth, while new processes and systems are put in place. We become a member of your team and make sure projects critically important to your growth get completed so that you and your people have the time and energy to focus where they are needed most.
