Our Mission

Help People Be Happier at Work.

Who We Are

Life is short and we spend a lot of our waking hours in the office. We think that life at work can and should be just as meaningful, satisfying, and enjoyable as life off the clock. From our design of the world’s best employee recognition and feedback software, to the way we’ve coached our customers to build amazing cultures, everything we do is designed around this mission.

A Little History

Once there was a CEO (Scott Johnson, founder and CEO of Workfront) that couldn’t believe how easy it was for managers everywhere to get overly focused on results and underly focused on taking care of people.

Fortunately for the world, that guy had spent 15 years figuring out how to make work more meaningful. Double bonus was that he was a software tech entrepreneur who had already built a large enterprise software company and was totally capable of making the best workforce engagement solution the enterprise had ever seen... and he started waking up in the middle of the night bugged by the fact that great people everywhere are not super happy about what they do or who they do it for.

That was in 2013. Today, Motivosity is driving amazing results for companies across the world.

We already have MV and #ThanksMatters. Why did Motivosity create a Yeti mascot?

Company culture can be messy. It means different things to different people. Your team members are likely making culture requests but maybe that doesn’t line up with what the Executive team sees as a priority.

Unhappy employees impact your customers. It’s expensive when they leave the organization. Sometimes it’s even worse when they stay.

We knew a guide would be helpful for our friends in HR that are anxious to tackle company culture head on. We wanted someone who knows how to solve culture once and for all, and not just with more snacks in the break room.

Carl Yeti was the mascot for the job.
