Culture Amp’s perspective is each has its own set of pros and cons, but the best approach is one that empowers individuals at all levels of the organisation to be accountable.

This will encourage managers to empower employees to take action on the things they have control over (e.g. continuous learning) while simultaneously ensuring managers and the wider organisation focus on the individual-level experience of your people.

If you are looking to improve your employee engagement, culture or are working to get leadership buy-in then this conversation is for you! Join this interactive session and hear how a leading media conglomerate, oOh!media, has revolutionised their people and culture strategy with employee feedback. Sharing key learnings along the way, you will leave this session with some actionable insights to help you to succeed in your own organisation’s journey to being culture first.
