Corporate culture is one of the most powerful drivers of innovation.2 CultureX can help you to measure and improve cultural drivers of innovation including trust, psychological safety, and risk-taking.
Toxic culture is the most powerful driver of the great resignation, more than ten times as powerful as compensation.6 Toxicity also drives employee disengagement and illness.7 Even companies with healthy overall cultures often have pockets of toxicity.
Facing a long list of repetitive questions, employees switch off. In a typical engagement survey, more than 70% of employees will exhibit significant autopilot, paying little attention to the question being asked.
The Old Way of Listening Isn’t Working
Organizational leaders traditionally measure culture by asking employees dozen(s) of one-to-five point scale questions. This approach has three limitations:
Employees Switch to Autopilot
Surveys Tell Employees What Should Matter
Can’t Tell Why They Gave The Answer

“This is…one of the most powerful Dare to Lead episodes we’ve recorded, especially in terms of data…[CultureX co-founders] Donald, and Charlie have done this incredible research into why people are leaving, what’s driving people out, what are the motivations behind the Great Resignation…get your notebooks out, get your pens out. If you’re moving, this is going to be one you’re going to have to listen to two, or three times. Listen to it the first time, second time get ready to take notes.”
