How to Give Employees a Voice With Didier Elzinga of Culture Amp
How did Didier Elzinga go from running an Academy Award-winning visual effects company to found an employee experience platform? Spoiler: it’s all about the people. In his first CEO role, Elzinga realized that people were everything and that his role was primarily focused on people management. So in 2009, he set out to create a better world of work. Since then, Culture Amp has scaled to work with more than 5,000 companies and 25 million employees across the globe. Elzinga shares why he believes in the transformative power of story, how the importance of communication ramps up during periods of hyper-growth, and why post-Covid offices must facilitate a different way of bringing people together.
