We wanted to speak to
Employees and Hr Managers at companies between 300 - 1000 employees.
So we developed a survey to answer questions like
What is workplace company culture?
How do employees interact or engage with one another within the workplace?
Why do the current users subscribe?
What are the opportunities that lay ahead?
We used the results to design interview questions
We spoke to people at all of these great companies
We mapped the results to define Company Culture and how people engage at work
People defined culture as
How you treat people and interact with others
Being driven by the company mission
Good culture allows people to share common wins and losses
Builds trust and empowerment
Outreach is a component of good culture
In good culture participation is its own reward

Recognition is the #1 factor employees say inspires them to produce great work. Nothing else comes close— higher pay, promotion, autonomy or training - Forbes
65% of North Americans report that they weren’t recognized even once last year - O.C. Tanner
