Culture made tangible.

Culture is built on behaviors and structures. What people value impacts how they act and what they want.

We’ve created a framework that aggregates cultural data from employees to give you real-time updates on your company culture.

The 12 values framework

The Platypus culture framework is built on organizational behavior research in collaboration with Dr. Florence Villesèche and informed by the practical expertise of our founding team’s more than 15 years of HR and recruitment experience.

The 12 values reflect personal and professional priorities that guide individuals. They correspond to 3 core areas of organizational culture and are backed by 2 years of research and user testing.

Platypus combines the innovative thinking of a start up with the insights from HR and organizational behavior research. All of this packed into a smart and user-friendly analysis tool. I am thankful for the stimulating collaboration and look forward to supporting their growth.

Why do we ask people about their values?

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to work.

People are motivated by different things. They’re at different stages in their lives. They want to achieve different things, and they have different experiences. The list goes on.

Our framework invites users to reflect on what is – here and now – most important to their professional life.

We’re not analyzing people. We’re helping people define something most of us don't stop to consider.

The Platypus Print is your cultural footprint. It's a reflection of what you bring to an organization, and what you need in return to be happy at work.

I had a pretty good idea about what mattered to me already, but ranking my values, that was new. I was forced into singling out what actually matters the most. It made a huge difference. These are not things you reflect on every day.

Algorithmic modelling of culture dynamics.

Everyone in an organization has an impact on culture, but not to the same degree.

The Platypus culture map is an aggregation of data from the Platypus Prints of individual users.

We have developed an algorithm that adjusts for cultural impact to give you an accurate representation of your culture across the organization.

The granularity of the data allows you to compare culture across locations and departments, keep track of cultural changes, and drill down into the top values driving different demographics.
