About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to augment people decisions through simplified, easy to use analytics.
 

We believe that people data can make a real difference to how teams perform, but too often those analytics are difficult to understand or don’t relate directly to what actually people do, day to day. We’re different.

We’re democratising access to people analytics, putting them directly into the hands of the people that need them most; everyday managers.

Our Philosophy

Understanding how we like to work is important. We know it is because we’ve breathed it. We’ve been there. We’ve seen people struggle because of culture fit and we’ve seen managers who felt powerless to do anything about it.

Our philosophy stems from a simple belief that people work best when they are in workplace environments that support how they like to work. If you agree with this principle then you’ll get value from using ThriveMap.

Our Story

In 2015 we started a culture-driven recruitment marketplace called TalentRocket. Our aim was to help people find great places to work. That’s more than big brand names and perks, it’s about finding a place where anyone can enjoy doing their best work.

As part of helping candidates to discover their ideal place of work, we wanted to provide a way for them to understand and describe what their ideal looked like. After 18 months of meticulous research and testing that became a survey to understand how they liked to work.

We’d get great feedback from candidates saying our tool had helped them to ensure the culture they were going into was right for them, but when we looked into what companies were using to assess the culture fit of candidates the options were archaic personality tests or nothing at all.

Once companies got a glimpse at what we were doing, the reaction was immediate and clear… we had invented something unique and different; we could measure culture fit more effectively than any other product on the market….and ThriveMap was born.

Our Culture

Culture affects everything we do. From the way we treat each other and how we communicate to the decisions we make. It’s always there and it’s kind of like the air we breathe.

Most companies have core values. Few companies have cultures that reflect them.

So instead of values we created a manifesto on what it means to work here instead. This involves a number of pledges to our employees on how the leaders of the business will act.

It’s a living document, and it holds us all to account.

If you like the idea, I’d love you to steal it. Who knows, maybe we’ll shift more companies away from abstract values to more meaningful guidelines along the way.
