The RW Journey

what we set out to build

"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."

  • A simple framework leaders and team members can use to talk about culture openly and often.
  • A methodology to measure the health of workplace culture that is both intuitive and reasonable.
  • A software platform that gives owners and leaders the ability to measure their culture as needed.
  • An alternative to award programs where people can celebrate culture, without competition.
  • A network of like-minded companies working within our program that can share best practices.

the story

how our model was born

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.
