Culture and Employee Experience Solutions

Helping you build an employee experience and organizational culture that makes for better business, better lives, and a brighter future

Employee Experience Solutions for a more sustainable business

The paradigm for business is shifting: we’re moving from transactional to intentional; from focusing on our shareholders to creating value for all stakeholders. In this new model, your employees are key stakeholders. People are your greatest asset, and when they’re empowered, so is your business.

Creating an organizational culture that is intentional about how people work is as important as the underlying technologies and architectures powering your business. We know this, we practice it, and we’ve been building great cultures alongside great software for 15+ years. Making sure that your people, business, and technology are aligned fosters critical synergies that sustain transformation and generate maximum value for ALL stakeholders in your business.

Why invest in your Culture and Employee Experience?

For decades, corporate leaders have been using “culture” and “engagement” as buzzwords in a bid to attract and retain top talent. However, few businesses have been successful in building positive, self-sustaining cultures that improve employee experiences in a meaningful way.

Big shifts have taken place in the ways we work and how we view employees. Meanwhile, the sudden rise of a remote workforce has accelerated the need for talent retention, critical to ensuring business continuity. The increasing impetus to modernize and digitize also puts our employee cultures in the spotlight: When change is inevitable, you want to make sure your people are ready to support it by buying-in and being aligned with your business vision.

So now’s the time to take a pulse check. How is your culture? Are you people with you If you experience these symptoms, it’s a sign you will benefit from Culture and Employee Experience Solutions:

  • Complicated internal politics getting in the way of great work
  • Inefficient/reactive decision making
  • A lack of shared awareness and understanding
  • Inability to deliver projects, or always being in “crunchtime”

Benefits of investing in Employee Experience Solutions

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither are great organizational cultures. It takes empathy, insight, effort—and often, some expert guidance. Creating a strong and authentic culture requires total participation and buy-in from stakeholders, not just a top-down litany of principles and promises. Inviting employees into the process and taking a real, critical look at your culture may be intimidating at first, but it’s a key to creating an intentional culture that drives value.

While not all outcomes are quantifiable, a true people-driven cultural transformation can yield the following benefits:

  • Organizational alignment between all stakeholders at all levels
  • Confident and proactive decision-making
  • Open and positive communication
  • Consistent delivery at a comfortable pace, increasing your capacity
  • Delivering higher-quality end-products consistently
  • Higher retention thanks to happier, engaged employees

Their approach wasn’t pre-canned—they took the time to understand our goals and our market and develop a solution that was made for us. The clarity we’ve earned from this partnership is tremendous.

The 3 pillars of evolving your Culture and Employee Experience

Culture has always been of utmost importance to our founder and CEO, Dustin Wells, and it’s a huge part of what’s driven our success—and our clients’. Through our own journey of building a people-centric culture, we’ve identified these foundational pillars for creating a culture of engagement.

Pillars of evolving your Culture and Employee Experience Solutions

Balanced stakeholder value

Your brand is an extension of your leaders, your team, your customers, and other external stakeholders, and vice versa. In order to create meaningful cultures, we need to embrace a mindset that focuses on value-creation for all instead of “this-for-that.” 1+1 = 3.

Employee listening

How do you engage employees, make them feel heard, and give them a stake in creating your culture and supporting your business? It all starts with listening. Step one is to understand the perceptions and experiences of your employees and solicit honest, actionable feedback.

Connecting to Purpose

Purpose is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to help you and your stakeholders connect with yours. By linking your transformation to how it impacts your company’s ability to better fulfill its purpose, we can help you drive positive, value-driven change.

Why choose us as your Employee Experience Solution providers?

We’ve been dedicated to building a positive culture from the start, one that enables us to uniquely align with our customers’ missions. Our track record of providing value to our clients is due in large part to the way we work. That’s why so many clients have engaged us as thought leaders and guides on more than the subject of software.

Our goal is to leave every team better than we found it—whether that means passing on some best practices or guiding complete cultural transformation. Our strong set of core values and our belief in “a better way” are key drivers of our success, and we pass them on you and your teams through example and dedicated action.

We believe in more than the power of great software to change lives. We believe in the power of great cultures to drive and sustain that change.
