We believe the workplace can be a source of energy for teams, rather than a depleter

We are working hard to reimagine what the workplace can look and feel like. We see a place where teams are transparent, aligned, proactive, and compassionate.

Our Mission

We use a combination of machine learning, behavior change science, and customized support to help teams in high-stress, high-performance industries measure, act on, commit to, and track team health.
