Amping Up: Culture Amp Raises an Additional $10M

Culture AmpEarlier this year, I wrote about the rise of HR software that would help determine culture fit. It seems “culture” took the place of employee engagement in buzzword bingo. What’s the most common cause of bad employee engagement? Crap Company Culture. Like that alliteration? Well, you won’t like what it means for your company.

To take a step back, recognizing your culture is crap requires you to figure out what type of culture you have. The employees that you have right now are deciding your company’s culture and to change it, you need to know where you’re starting, and that’s where Culture Amp comes in – and the investors are following.

Culture Amp recently added $10 Mil. to their bank account. In an announcement released on March 7th, 2016 they confirmed:

Culture Amp has raised $10 million in Series B financing, bringing its total investments since the company’s 2011 launch to $16.3 million. CEO and co-founder Didier Elzinga told Fortune that the company has tripled in size since raising $6.3 million in Series A funding last March.

If this quote fromCulture Amp CEO and co-founder Didier Elzinga is any indication to their future, I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next:

“Companies don’t just need more data: they need the right data, and we are building the industry’s leading platform for collecting and connecting relevant insights to understand what drives their people and culture.”
