In the book ‘Digital employee experience’ authors Tabhita Minten and Christiaan Lustig combine their years of experience at the intersection of digital communication, organization, HR, and technology, and address various topics revolving around the digital employee experience:
- What exactly is digital employee experience (#DEX)? How does it relate to the broader employee experience (EX)?
- Which perspectives are important when thinking about and working on #DEX? The organization’s and technology’s? Or is there more going on?
- Which stakeholders should you have at the table? Are they mainly Communication and IT? Or are there other relevant stakeholders?
- What role does technology play in digital employee experience? What does the strong growth of Microsoft 365 mean, for example?
- Which forms of digital work and collaborations are appropriate for the culture of your organisation? And how do you reinforce that culture?
The English version of the book is available via most international online stores.

James Robertson, managing direct of Step Two, and founder of the global DEX movement, says of the book: ‘Digital employee experience is an important, but also a new idea. For this reason, we need pioneers to map out the landscape to enable wider engagement and participation of organisations around the globe. With their new book, Tabhita and Christiaan offer a structured approach to laying out the fundamentals of DEX principles and practices.’
Elena Bogdanova, founder and CEO of Rivelty.Intranet, says: ‘I love how Christiaan and Tabhita structured their book. I enjoyed the flow of their thoughts, and the book is interesting to novices as well as experts.
At first I read particular topics, but I would recommend everyone start from beginning to follow the authors’ train of thoughts. I admire how the authors connect their ideas with those of other experts, but with their own true opinion on it. This is really valuable.
The book is easy and enjoyable to read, and well written. It feels like you’re talking to the authors in a friendly atmosphere, when one person explains something interesting to the other. Recommended!’
Tabhita and Christiaan presented the key insights and models from the book at the 2021 Digital Employee Experience Conference on 1 and 2 September, and did so again at the IntraTeam Event 2021 vol. 3 on 16 November 2021.
