John founded Right Workplace in 2014 as a common-sense alternative to workplace award programs. A few years later John expanded his vision to include a software platform that he designed and developed to make a great culture accessible to organizations of all types and sizes.
"I grew up in Ireland and found my way to the US in 2001 as a Computer Science graduate. In the years since I served as a public company CIO, a private company CEO, and a founder/investor on a number of ventures. Right Workplace reflects my personal passion for impacting others through common-sense practices for creating a healthy culture where great people and ideas can thrive."
Right Workplace was born out of the idea that improving culture could be achieved more effectively by asking the right questions often as opposed to asking a lot of questions annually. We noticed that companies were using award programs to seek recognition for their culture, and then using the outcome of that process to drive improvement. That's akin to competing in a marathon as a means to learn how much you need to work out.
Our platform makes is your work out app. It gives leaders an easy and intuitive way to assess culture often, and drive improvement along the way. It becomes part of how we work and leads to far better outcomes for all.
