Driving Business Outcomes through Culture Data

Company culture is no longer a soft topic. Using Guidewire as an example, David Shanklin and Ian Creamer will explain how leaders can quantify and track company culture, enabling a more strategic and data-driven approach to people operations.

Learn about the power of culture data, opportunities for applying culture analytics in your organisation, and how to focus your efforts for maximum impact.

The Context

A strategic company culture is key to linking employee engagement and business success. The old approach of “gut feel” and “management by opinion” are no longer sufficient to ensure your culture is aligned with your business strategy and working toward your business goals.

Guidewire, our primary case study, serves as an example of this common challenge.

  • Guidewire was navigating large amounts of organisational change with more on the horizon, resulting in rising concerns about scaling their culture and maintaining high levels of employee engagement.
  • Leaders had assumptions and hunches about their culture and how to manage it, but lacked the necessary data fully understand where to focus.

The Project

Collecting and analysing culture data from employees enables strategic alignment and informed decision making about people operations.

CultureIQ partnered with Guidewire to collect accurate culture data from employees. We analysed this data across demographic groups to dispel inhibiting assumptions and empower leaders to make smarter people and business decisions during times of change.
