It’s important to talk
In our long engagement with xto10x, one of the challenges they brought to us was
how to make their employee feedback platform more efficient.
Where was the gap but?
Our user research and the subsequent design sprint pointed to the fact that
employees were not comfortable sharing their woes to the portal.
How might we create a platform for teams where they feel
Characterize to Humanize
To humanize the portal, we chose the path of adding a character with a
empathic, calm and friendly personality
to make employees feel ‘as if they were talking to a person’
To create a character employees would trust and feel comfortable with sharing their woes, we needed to figure out
why, when, how and to whom the user’s spoke to about their concerns.
Creating a Personality
User’s responses during the user research landed us on
around which our character had to be crafted.
Bringing CLO to life
To make the character from scratch, we moulded the
user’s keywords into personality characteristics
which then translated into the physical representation of the character.
Initial sketching phase
Many faces of CLO
Once we had our
Chief Learning Officer:CLO
, we created versions of it depicting each emotion that would be needed to communicate to the user.
CLO in action
The last step was appropriately integrating different versions of CLO throughout the portal to give it the essence of a sentient personality.
