On Monday 10th June, startup Workio launched the first BETA version of their app to help codify company culture and unlock hidden business performance.
The app, which makes use of custom-built chatbots integrated into workplace communications software platforms such as Slack and Microsoft Teams, is the brainchild of Kieron Faller and Allan Stewart; two post-grads who met during their time on the Executive MBA course at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.
Working alongside their advisory board – which includes Dr Sanna Balsari-Pulsule, a Cambridge PhD in Organisational Behaviour – Workio claim to have discovered the secret sauce to codify and unlock the power of company culture. CEO Kieron Faller explains…
“Workio have created the complete model for company culture based on years of academic research. The tool simply measures employee preferences compared to their experience at work, processes it through our model, and uses machine learning to give clear actionable insights to executives and leaders.”
Workio have been working with select partners over the last year, honing the model and testing their approach in the real world. The app is now ready, and Workio plan to migrate existing users, and take on six new partner clients to provide additional input, helping shape the new app as part of the next stage of their growth. CTO Allan Stewart says:
“This is an exciting time for us as we launch a tool we believe can help improve employee retention, engagement and even help in M&A transactions. We are understanding and actioning company culture in a seamless and low friction way.”
Workio measures company culture, providing priority data and insight to improve employee experience and company performance.
