About Us | Our Story, Mission & Leadership | Emplify >

Emplify is on a mission to help one million employees do the best work of their careers. Giving organizations a way to unlock the potential of their people, Emplify’s Insights™ framework distills culture and feedback into employee analytics that enable leaders to make better data-driven decisions.

Like most great success stories, Emplify began as a simple idea.

As we considered ways to improve engagement for our own employees, we thought that bringing snacks into the office might be a good place to start. But when we polled our team, the results showed that what people actually wanted was a 401(k) match—and then maybe some snacks.

This was a pivotal moment for us as we realized that soliciting and quantifying honest feedback is the only way to truly understand and work toward improving employee engagement. After all, you have a metric for everything else in your business—why not culture?

So we set out to build a tool that helps leaders to know exactly what they need to do in order to improve engagement for their organizations. We created Emplify Insights, a tool that delivers an honest, straightforward view of your company through confidential, data-driven surveys. Based on scientific measurements of employee engagement, each survey is completely confidential and provides leaders with a single top-line score to track progress each quarter.

We believe in the value of Emplify Insights not just for your organization, but for ours. Since utilizing this tool for our own engagement, we’ve recognized several areas for improvement, and made specific changes in response to that feedback, including:

  • A professional development budget for all employees
  • Quarterly reviews to encourage feedback
  • Job descriptions to increase role clarity

Today, Emplify is well-positioned to help people-centered CEOs and HR leaders measure, diagnose, and solve their employee engagement challenges through a combination of insightful survey data and expert guidance.

What insights can we help you uncover?

“Engagement and culture matter to us because our people matter to us. But we had no idea just how much value this effort could have for our company—and now our customers.

We fully believe that tomorrow’s market winners will be those who realize that their people are one of their top competitive differentiators.”
