When culture and strategy eat breakfast together!

Most companies struggle to get valuable information about their employees.
Our unique system helps leaders get the right  understanding to develop their employees to build great company culture.

the challenge

71% of leaders want better data about the people in the organization to make better business decisions

91% of leaders do not know what gives results

92% of leaders do not have useful data

Lack of knowledge gives the following frightening fact

89%
Disengaged

89% are disengaged

This can be compared to if your company had been a ship with 100 rowers. 

  • 75 had not rowed
  • 14 rowed in wrong direction
  • 11 rowed correctly. 

As a captain, it would have been completely unacceptable, 
but that is actually the case in most organizations by 2022.

39%
Stressed

39% are stressed daily at work

Why? And what can it mean for the company that so many are stressed daily?

  • Higher sick leave
  • Lower effect
  • People leave.

All this contributes to large increased costs.

The main challenge 
is the absence of knowledge about people and culture that makes strategies fail.

According to Gallup, disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity
and 15% lower profitability.

Leaders want better information on how they can make better use of employees' strengths

  • The tools they have seen today are not adapted to the leaders' everyday lives. 
  • There is a faster and greater need for change in organizations now than ever before.
  • There are hundreds of thousands of change consultants around the world, 
    but change processes are still failing.

What to Expect

Would you let a doctor 
operate on you without doing an
examination first?


Culture Exploit will help leaders solve problems before it is a problem.
It has real live reports and you can drill down on many aspects.
The leader can see all the information about the organization in one view!

Of course, you will see scores immediately, as soon as at least five people have responded.
Culture Exploit does not need a day or two to compile statistics for the report.

Tracking employee data is only the beginning. What matters most is how that data is analyzed and translated into an actionable system of intelligence.

We think you will be pleasantly surprised by the investment cost.
Developing an organizational culture should not be stopped by expensive tools.

The people in the real world do not behave like the people we make all our usual strategies for.


Research shows that there is no clear positive relationship between employee satisfaction and productivity. Of course, we want employees to be engaged and that is fine, but research shows that satisfaction alone does not create results. "Passion is individualistic. It can energize us but also isolate us because my passion is not yours. By contrast, purpose is something we can share. It can knit groups together."Dan & Chip Heath from Power of Moment

In an environment where we support each other based on trust and openness, a culture is created that is characterized by initiative and responsibility. Then it is not about managers who must constantly ensure that employees are engaged, but about a strongly binding and mutual interaction. That is why it is so important to measure the "We" perspective in culture instead of the "I" perspective that is common in employee and engagement surveys. With a good culture comes the right engagement.

To change culture, you depend on people with the expected behavior. By mapping what behavioral tendencies there are, it will be easier to create a strategy based on the strengths of the employees and you will succeed.

If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old

A strong culture aligned with strategy and leadership
drives positive organizational outcomes.


Without mapping, most projects will not achieve the desired result after the scheduled time.
Changing a culture is difficult and takes time.
Leading a culture that we know how respond will make it possible to leverage the strengths and be conscious of the weaker sides.

"Intelligence is usually seen as the ability to think and learn, but in a rapidly changing world, there’s another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn. In our daily lives, too many of us favor the comfort of conviction over the discomfort of doubt. We listen to opinions that make us feel good, instead of ideas that make us think hard. We see disagreement as a threat to our egos, rather than an opportunity to learn. Intelligence is no cure, and it can even be a curse: there’s evidence that being good at thinking can make us worse at rethinking. The brighter we are, the blinder to our own limitations we can become."  - Adam Grant - Think Again

Easy to adapt, easy to use


A little less talk and a lot more action

Start a new survey in less than 10 minutes

  • Set up and integration is done by us, (if you want to)
  • Help leaders solve problem, before it is a problem
  • Measure "We" and not only "I" as in engagement surveys

There are continually faster and more disrupting changes in the surroundings that lead to changes in the strategy and adjustments in the organization.
This is leading to  increased degree of innovation, globalization and digitization, people are required to work across functions and countries. Breaking down the silos is not easy, but necessary
.

Culture EXPLOIT gives you the view on how the actual culture is perceived among all employees. This gives your managers the insights they need to improve their teams, backed up with real data.
You can drill down at departmental level, age, gender, seniority, district, occupational group, remote, hybrid, fulltime or parttime, education level or a combination of all this. It detects whether there are tension between the current situation and the desired situation.

Correlating this data with other factors will make it easy to find out where culture works well and where it does not. 

You can complete Culture Exploit in 14 languages.

What they say

We wanted to become more aware of the culture in the company, so that the leaders could lead better. The result could be tough for some of the leaders but we were pleasantly surprised by many of the strengths we had not utilized.

Daniel

CEO B2B

A new course is needed because the world has changed and our view of man has changed compared to what it looked like yesterday.
Artificial Intelligence, Correlation vs. causation, Cloud solutions, sense making etc. Technology and knowledge made us overcome so many obstacles and release incredible things. I love Culture exploit since finally we can show the same kind of fascination and interest in our own people and our own organizations. Imagine where this will lead us….”

Jari Aho

CEO and Cofounder Force Agile Sweden

We were to merge two companies and we wanted an overview of the strengths and challenges of the two companies. We had several aha experiences that would have been critical for us if we had not brought it up. We were also surprised by several strengths we were not aware of both in our own and in the company that was acquired.

Jenny

CEO Financial sector

We knew we had challenges in some departments, but we were unable to describe the challenge specifically. The tools we used did not give clear answers. With Culture Exploit, we got clear answers about what the challenge was. This enabled us to take measures that the employees appreciated. The simplicity of the whole product meant that I could use it immediately without any additional admin resources. It was also clear and understandable when I had to make the choices about what we were going to measure.

Ann

HR Manager

I liked the flexible approach and professional support combined with a solid survey tool. It was a good experience all the way. It showed us detailed information of what people in different departments are struggling with and pointed to what is essential to improve.

Yngvar Sjoner

HR Director, Nemko Group

The Culture Exploit tool is a fast and eye opener as thermometer of my organization
What do you like best in Culture Exploit?
What used to be complex and time-consuming to measure the company culture, has become a relatively fast and easy-to-use tool that gives our leaders practical inside information and also how to react, without difficult interpretations and all without the use of expensive external consultants. I got the impression that we are in control of our own culture and not an outsider.
What problems is Culture Exploit solving and how is that benefiting you?
That we have a continuous inside knowledge of our culture where it goes well and where improvements are required. And it benefits the leaders to have a quick inside of how they are doing compared with the remaining organization.

FAQ

Is the Culture Exploit platform only for larger companies?

No! In fact, the platform is specifically thought and designed to meet all requirements, no matter the size of the company. Smaller companies benefit from the unique value pricing, from the ease of use and the abundance of standard templates available, while the bigger companies vastly benefit from the massive customisation capability and scalability.

Are Culture Exploit expensive?

We don’t believe in charging for things you don’t need or want. If you compare us with others, we are more affordable. We want to be seen as the one that gives you the most value for the money invested. We believe that there should not be a high threshold for developing a good culture. The go-to guy for company culture.

How long is the contract period?

How long does it take to set-up my Culture Exploit account?

Once the agreement has been signed, we collect information about the employees and how the organization is structured by country and by department. When the organization is built, access to the system will be given to the managers for their levelOnce this is done, the system is ready for use.

Is the system anonymous?

Yes! 100% anonymous. We only reveal the scores of a dimension after a certain number of answers have been accumulated, thus not allowing for users to guess who scored them. People know “what” was said but not “who” said it. This allows all team members to really express what is on their mind without fear of any retribution.

How does the system know if I have completed a survey? Does that mean I can be identified?

The system has a record of whether you have completed the survey or not. This is automatically tracked by the system so that it can send you reminders to take the survey before the deadline. Tracking your responses also enables the system to customize each survey to you. All of this is done automatically, without human intervention, and your responses are kept confidential throughout. There are various data visibility controls in place to protect your identity and restrict who can see your survey responses. This information is not visible to anyone in your company. Whether you have responded to the survey is never revealed to your managers. We take confidentiality extremely seriously at Culture Exploit.

What if I leave the page without answering all the questions, will they be saved for when I come back?

It will work best for organizations that already or have decided to work consciously to improve their organizational culture. We help you measure and select the right focus areas that will give your organization the best opportunities for improvement, but you have to be willing to take action with the results that we uncover.

How is Culture Exploit better than other workplace climate software?

Contrary to the ‘I’ point of view analyzed in engagement surveys – Culture EXPLOIT seek to understand the ‘We’.
According to Berkeley Professor Morten Hansen, who found out through his research how much greater the impact of purpose in relation to passion had on job performance.

Research says that managers want better information on how to better utilize the strengths of employees. The tools we have seen today are not adapted to the everyday lives of managers. Quick and easy overview of what matters for how to manage the organization tomorrow.
Based on this, we started Xientia to give leaders better tools to describe how the organization really is. The analyzes should be easy to interpret and implement for all employees. The reports must be easy for the leader to understand, and no need for long courses and certifications.
There was a lot of solutions out there, but the products were mostly based on the gut feeling of consultants, or large expensive analyzes that were reserved for the largest organizations. Something was certainly right, but most had no reality.

We believe in leaders who believe in their employees
Based on our experience we developed a completely new analysis fully digitized to more efficient analyze the people in the organization. This means that leaders at all levels have easy access to those they lead and want to see the strengths and challenges that exist.
Real-time data – which is just plain awesome. 100% anonymous surveys – which makes it safe. Fun to use – which is the opposite of boring.

Why is customization a valuable option for our organization?

For many reasons! First of all, you no longer have to assess people for hours and browse through data you basically don’t need. By using the Culture Exploit platform’s customisation options you can create surveys meeting your specific needs. With traditional vendors you have to measure what they established you should measure. Another, and perhaps even more important implication is that you also have to put your employees through unnecessary time which we know is becoming an increasing problem. Furthermore, you have to locate the information you need in reports filled with information which aren’t really relevant.

Is it difficult to build my own survey?

No, it’s probably much simpler than you imagine. You just need to choose and pick from 36 different number of dimensions and Stress tendencies. It’s literally a matter of a few minutes before you are ready to use your standard customised assessment.

What do I need in order to use the Culture Exploit platform?

All you need is access to the Internet and a browser. The Culture Exploit platform is a global SaaS, Cloud-based solution. This also means that the platform is truly scalable.

Where is Culture Exploit developed?

We have development hubs in Europe. Besides attracting the best developers available, our development hubs also provide a reliable and global platform support. HQ and product development are in Norway.

Is Culture Exploit a safe platform?

Absolutely! The platform is a dynamic application.
Our security is first class, both for IT and of course for each employee.
 Extensive SSO application catalogue - Provisioning - Security policies, compliance (GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA)
The platform is hosted in Belgium, but can be  which probably has the most rigid data protection laws and regulations in the world. The GR8PI platform conforms to EU laws and regulations, and on top of that, we hold the prestigious and EU approved EuroCloud Star Audit certification. It doesn’t really get any better than that!
