CultureAmp is a leading employee experience platform that helps companies create great workplaces. The platform offers a suite of tools to help companies measure, understand, and improve their employee experience. They work with some of the biggest companies out there – CocaCola, Etsy, McDonald's and Canva, just to name a few.
Their goal is clear: not just to improve the employee experience, but to prove that companies large and small can see huge gains when they have happy employees.
CultureAmp has it all – a free Slack group, virtual and live events, tons of resources rooted in science, and of course, one of the key features is its cultural assessment tools. These tools help companies measure and understand their culture, and identify areas that need improvement.
There are three main cultural assessment tools offered by CultureAmp
The Culture Amp Survey is the most comprehensive of the three tools. It measures employee engagement, satisfaction, and productivity across a wide range of topics.
The Culture Amp Diversity & Inclusion Survey is a more focused survey that measures employee perceptions of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
The Culture Amp 360° Feedback Tool is a tool that allows employees to get feedback from their colleagues, managers, and direct reports.
Included: All three of these tools are available as part of the CultureAmp core program.
Cost: The core program price encompasses a one-time licensing fee based on the size of your organization and a per-month employee cost.
How CultureAmp cultural assessment tools work
The Culture Amp cultural assessment tools work by asking employees a series of questions about their work experience. The surveys are designed to measure employee engagement, satisfaction, and productivity, as well as employee perceptions of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
The results of the surveys are then analyzed by CultureAmp to identify areas that need improvement. It provides companies with a detailed report of the results of the surveys, as well as recommendations for how to improve the employee experience.

One of the most common praises for Culture Amp programs is their user-friendly interface and ease of use. Many users appreciate the platform's design and find it easy to navigate, even if they have little experience with data analysis or HR metrics. People teams have also praised the depth and accuracy of Culture Amp's survey questions, which allow companies to gain valuable insights into their organizational culture.
While the platform offers a range of pricing plans, some users feel that the cost is too high for small or medium-sized businesses. Additionally, some users have criticized the platform's limited customization options, which can make it difficult for companies to tailor surveys to their specific needs.
Another common complaint is the time it takes to see results and take action on the insights provided by Culture Amp programs. While the platform offers detailed reporting and analysis, some users have found that it can take weeks or months to see meaningful changes in their organizational culture, which is totally natural given how hard it can be to change people's hearts and minds. Take advantage of the free Slack group and the shared knowledge where you can implement some shorter-term tips at the same time as your longer initiatives.
Some users have also reported difficulties in getting employees to engage with the surveys and provide honest feedback, which is also natural. People don't trust authority and it's hard to trust when something is truly anonymous.
Address these issues in an FAQ for whatever program you roll out, and you'll be able to get folks excited about improving culture.
