The Alternative Careers Festival wouldn’t be possible without the support of fellow forward-thinking startups, charities and organisations. These businesses are leaders in their fields, are doing things differently and are challenging the way the world views work. We are excited to partner with them to bring this event to life. They are offering exclusive workshops, experiences and competitions, so don’t miss the chance to meet them on the day.

The People Geeks

CultureAmp is the world’s most powerful employee feedback and analytics platform. Their international team draws on deep knowledge in organisational psychology, data science, UX and engineering to empower the most innovative organisations in the world who put culture first. They help businesses work better, by allowing 

From Airbnb to Aesop, Pinterest to Pixar, Slack to SoulCycle, Wikimedia to Warby Parker, Culture Amp are revealing how it feels to work inside these businesses. By easily measuring employee engagement, experience, and getting 360 feedback the process for creating a positive culture becomes built on facts, not just intentions. 

“Culture, in a nutshell, is what you believe in as an organisation, and what the customer sees and experiences at the end of the day. It is what you stand for, the whole philosophy that your company is built upon, what you are going to succeed at, how you run a company and how you, as a company, treat each other. It is what your organisation is motivated to do and how you deliver.”
