Australian workplace tech powerhouses Atlassian and Culture Amp have been included in the top 10 for Fast Company’s annual list of the world’s most innovative companies.
Unsurprising, project management tool Asana, Zoom and Slack take out the top three spots following a year where remote work and communication came to the fore, with Atlassian recognised at no. 5, behind fellow software company Gitlab. Atlassian was recognised “for improving collaboration with tools that streamline tracking, planning, and management”.
Culture Amp comes in at no. 7 behind Chief, which connects female executives for coaching, mentorship, and support. Culture Amp was recognised “for building an HR platform that uses data analytics to increase employee engagement”.
The 2021 top 10 recognises companies that offered workplace solutions to help businesses continue operations “during the most disruptive year in modern times”. The full Fast Company Most Innovative Companies list features 463 businesses from 29 countries.
Culture Amp co-founder and CEO Didier Elzinga said they were delighted to debut on the list’s top 10.
“The past 12 months have highlighted the value of prioritising culture as a strategic priority. Amongst so much uncertainty and change, the way organisations intentionally create and shape work culture and influence the employee experience is more important than ever – and we’re here to support them on that journey,” he said
“Now more than ever, we need empathetic, agile, human leaders and we’re constantly working to deliver the tools, insights and support to help organisations support their talent. We thank everyone of our 400+ employees and over 3,500 customers for joining us on this journey and helping us to create, shape and deliver a better world of work.”
Culture Amp now works with more than four million people on a daily basis, with their work insights shared publicly to identify key workplace trends and guide organisations in their strategic responses.
