Seattle, WA (August 3, 2021) - The Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) announced today a strategic partnership with CultureX to give organizations unprecedented insight into their corporate culture, employer brand, and risk for employee attrition using MIT-developed artificial intelligence.
The partnership combines the blueprint for successful organizational culture change outlined in i4cp’s groundbreaking research—and CEO Kevin Oakes’ bestselling book Culture Renovation®—with CultureX’s proprietary AI-driven technology. Developed at MIT, the platform leverages Natural Language Processing (NLP) to analyze employee sentiment and quickly and accurately pinpoint strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement.
The technology adds a new element to i4cp’s Culture Renovation solutions, enabling a well-rounded and accurate assessment of organizational culture. It offers business leaders a deep understanding of workforce sentiment, gauges the strength of employer brand to attract and retain employees, and provides comparative insight into competitors by analyzing comments from career sites and employee surveys.
“As we enter the next era of work, many organizations are looking to renovate their cultures to be able to adapt to future market disruptions more quickly and improve their ability to attract and retain employees,” said Oakes. “However, employers face an uphill battle with an impending talent exodus, difficult decisions on workforce flexibility, and cultural rifts exposed as they return to office. Our partnership with CultureX enables business leaders to pinpoint culture risks and, using the 18 actions in Culture Renovation, drive change more efficiently and effectively.”
“Understanding and incorporating the employee voice is crucial to the success of organizations, particularly during times of turbulence,” said Don Sull, co-founder of CultureX and Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management, “At CultureX, we have invented a technology that allows leaders to listen to employees at scale with great insight and nuance. i4cp’s Culture Renovation blueprint offers organizations an actionable, evidence-backed way to create lasting cultural change, and we are excited to provide the employee listening component to the solution. We believe our partnership offers organizations a best-in-class opportunity to translate culture from abstract philosophizing into concrete results that create demonstrable value.”
