The Science

People data your managers will actually use

We use organisational psychology, management experience and statistically validated data to measure the five dimensions of practical company culture, in order to improve hiring accuracy and team performance.

We’re democratizing access to people analytics, taking them out of the hands of highly paid psychologists and into the hands of everyday managers.

What is company culture?

If company values are the roadmap to your success, company culture is the navigator, dictating every turn you make on the way.

While one is dependant on long term strategic planning, the other is the day to day mechanisms of what is actually going on.

Everyone has their own unique culture, whether they have actively planned it or not. You can use ThriveMap to identify yours today.

Measuring Person-Environment fit

Amy Kristoff Brown, professor of management, grounded in psychology, with a PhD in organizational behavior and human resource management

Based on research conducted by Professor Amy Kristof-Brown, Person-Environment (PE) fit is a measure of how well people fit an environment.

It’s comprised of 4 components;

  • person-organisation (PO) fit
  • person-job (PJ) fit
  • person-group (PG) fit
  • person-supervisor (PS) fit

The latest research has shown that PG fit has a significantly stronger correlation to performance than PO fit.

In other words, someone’s fit with the team is more important than their fit with the company as a whole.

This is why ThriveMap measures culture fit on a team rather than organisational level. Specifically, ThriveMap is a brand new approach to measure PG and PS fit.

Our methodologies combines the latest technology to give both complementary and supplementary fit assessment reports, whilst avoiding the known limitations of aggregated personality-based measurements of PG fit.

What we measure

ThriveMap is a survey that measures the 5 key attributes that make up day-to-day workplace culture:

  • Decision Making
  • Career Progression
  • Working Style
  • Measuring Performance
  • Team Interaction

By overlapping maps, our algorithms can predict potential risks and areas of cohesion between people and teams.

The ThriveMap survey

People data you'll actually understand

ThriveMap forces people to choose between two opposing statements, in order to eke out a preference.

Unlike personality tests, ThriveMap doesn’t produce 80 page reports, claiming to know everything about an individual. We ask direct questions, and give you direct results in response.

“We're on a mission to be the most widely used and accurate method of predicting culture fit.”
