the Age of Loneliness
Understanding how people now look to the workplace to nurture their sense of belonging.
We help organizations cultivate a culture of belonging
that inspires employees to achieve success at all levels, improving talent retention and propensity to thrive.
Prevent regrettable attrition
Know why your employees are leaving you, predict propensity to leave, and reduce your cost of ownership
Use data to strengthen employee sense of belonging
Data tells a story. Learn what your data is telling you and to develop a baseline to start measuring belonging.
Take a leaders first approach to improve your employees’ propensity to thrive
You can’t fix your organization until you fix your leaders. First-line Leaders have the biggest influence on employee well-being, retention…and attrition.
Develop belonging at every level of the organization
Develop a strong cultural foundation of belonging and create employee advocacy.
Everything we do is backed by research, science, and experiential learning.
The three mantras are the north star that underpins our work. These values are:
Know your story. Our work gives people tools and stories to help them understand themselves better and feel connected through normalcy. Everything we create is easy, consumable, engaging, repeatable, and done with integrity.
Transform through leaders. We help companies by starting with their leaders to transform and disrupt through deep humanity, challenging their biases, and fostering psychological safety, trust, and care.
Make time for a chorus of voices. Everything we do includes our commitment to belonging at work and to the people we serve. We challenge people, processes, and systems, protecting the wellbeing of our community and providing a brave, safe, space. We bring the community together through the power of story.

We partner with companies to evaluate and increase employee sense of belonging, transforming company culture through leadership agility, and lowering the impact and cost of regrettable attrition
The Cost of Getting Belonging Wrong
The costs associated with the ambiguity of workplace belonging are astonishing. According to a study conducted by Ernest & Young spanning generations, genders, and ethnicities, more than 40% of the 1,000 Americans surveyed said that they felt physically and emotionally isolated in the workplace resulting in lower engagement and commitments to their organizations. Gallup reports that this comes at a high cost for companies as disengaged employees have 37% higher absenteeism, 18% lower productivity, and 15% lower profitability.
