About Us

We believe businesses can achieve better employee engagement and retention. We're passionate about helping people create real, lasting change.

Our History

We are motivated to change the way companies think about their employees, and how they collaborate with and learn from them. Our goal is that organizations who recognize the importance of employee experience and feedback can easily make it a priority in their own processes.

We worked hard to ensure that our solution was scientifically sound and backed by latest business research. Our partners from Harvard Business School have helped us develop a way to easily create and monitor harmony between the components companies most often struggle to find balance with: engagement, productivity, and retention.

Ensuring organizations have what they need to properly appreciate their people means that those talented people are more likely to stay at their organization. We want a win-win situation for everyone in the organization.
