Emplify to Sponsor Gut+Science Podcast


A passionate grassroots effort to reveal real business talk on leadership and culture with America’s top CEOs

FISHERS, Ind. (April 26, 2018)—Emplify, an employee engagement software company focused on actionable insights and data analytics for leaders, announced today that the organization will be sponsoring Gut+Science, a new podcast featuring interviews with top CEOs from organizations ranging from Harley Davidson to Panera Bread Company.

Emplify’s decision to sponsor Gut+Science was inspired by the podcast’s founders, a small group of visionaries who are passionate about fostering employee engagement and creating collaborative work cultures.

“Every day, I find myself surrounded by incredible leaders who are reinventing what it means to build people-first cultures,” said Gut+Science Host Nikki Lewallen. “These aren’t executives who have it all figured out, but rather forward-thinking CEOs who are willing to own mistakes and pivot toward new solutions. Gut+Science gets to the heart of the lessons they’ve learned so that executives everywhere can apply them.”

In her exchanges with CEOs, Lewallen will explore common engagement challenges, delve into solutions, see what’s being done to measure success, and find out where successful companies are headed next.

In taking on the role of title sponsor, Emplify will support a grassroots effort to connect CEOs across America in a forum for sharing, learning and improving together.

“When Lewallen approached Emplify about the possibility of supporting Gut+Science, we were immediately on board,” said Emplify CEO Santiago Jaramillo. “Our mission is to empower executives with truth they can act on, which aligns perfectly with the vision of this podcast.”
