Illuminating Culture and Company Growth

Illuminating Culture and Company Growth

We believe that the key to a company’s success is deeply rooted in its culture.  However, we found that many of our clients had a difficult time defining and addressing corporate culture.  What is culture?  How does culture affect the workplace?  How do we quantify the effects of culture on individuals, groups and organizations?  These were just a few of the questions they had.

To help clients gain a better understanding of culture, we set out on a mission to find a way to better quantify culture. This led to the creation of illumyx.

Importance of Culture

Four years ago, we embarked on a journey to find a way to quantify culture in the workplace.  For us, “culture” means “how work is accomplished.”  Through various research and analyses, we continuously found that a strong culture is key to a company’s success.  A strong culture can create passionate employees, loyal customers and set companies on the road to success.  On that same note, culture that is lacking may lead to high turnover rates, dissatisfied customers and a decrease in productivity.  Because of this, it’s important to understand how culture works.

As an organization that was founded on the idea of making a difference, we wanted to create a way to help others see these cultural patterns.  We were driven to help companies be their own cultural experts—not just by presenting a pattern, but to provide the tools needed to measure and track culture.

This is where illumyx comes in.  Created by The Utech Group and University Researchers, illumyx is an interactive culture analytic platform that provides a quantifiable way to identify corporate culture and provide you with the information needed to create and sustain lasting change.

How illumyx Works

The goal of illumyx is to teach you how to be self-sufficient when it comes to culture.  Using data gathered from company surveys, illumyx uses predictive analytic to identify cultural trends within a company.  Its ease-to-use navigation platform lets you to explore and understand data in an efficient manner.  The information is conveniently organized into a start-stop-continue format to show you aspects of the company’s culture that needs to be maintained or improved.

With assistance from our team of cultural experts, we teach you how to understand this information, so that you can identify barriers that are limiting your corporate growth.
