Culture Amp, the world’s leading employee experience platform, announced today that it has acquired cultural values recognition company, Disco. Disco helps companies recognize and celebrate values-driven work, foster team appreciation and improve company culture across distributed teams.
Together the two companies will accelerate their shared vision of creating a better world of work by helping people feel more connected, valued, and engaged at a critical time for organizations.
The acquisition continues to enhance Culture Amp’s end-to-end employee experience platform, as it empowers companies to transform employee engagement, develop high performing teams, and retain talent.
“Values are at the heart of powerful cultures. Disco has pioneered a wonderfully simple yet powerful way of recognizing them every day,” said Didier Elzinga, CEO and co-founder of Culture Amp. “Critical to creating a better world of work is improving how we work. This acquisition allows us to expand the tools available to our customers to recognize their values at work, to bolster our flow of work and integration expertise, and to drive meaningful change and deeper insights across organizations.”
Jeremy Vandehey, former CEO of Disco, now a Director of Product at Culture Amp, added, “We are incredibly excited to join forces with Culture Amp and to have the opportunity to help thousands of companies enable values-driven work, build engagement, and foster team appreciation. That is why we founded Disco and we see an opportunity to rapidly accelerate what we set out to do by being part of Culture Amp.”
“Culture Amp has been a great partner as we continue scaling our team engagement programs,” said Chris Low, Canva’s Head of Vibe. “We’ve also been using Disco to foster a continued sense of community and celebration, particularly while we’re all working remotely. Celebrating kudos and sharing the success of others is a huge part of Canva’s values-driven culture.”
