Insights from a culture builder

Jon Franko, the founder of the industrial marketing agency, Gorilla76, told us he aimed to be the best coach and culture builder he could be for his company.

We asked him why, and his answer was simple: marketing agencies have been looking at culture partially wrong for decades. Sure, playing video games at work and having a beer fridge add sparkle to the experience, but these things often tackle culture superficially. 

Jon’s goal was to make his team proud to work at the agency by making everyday work and interactions meaningful and unique to Gorilla76. 

Cue: Officevibe, the employee engagement platform that helped Gorilla76 bring its culture to new heights. Hear it from Jon himself in our latest client testimonial video!

Gorilla76 and Officevibe: Elevating culture together since 2017 

It all started over ramen and a basketball game. Jon was looking for a tool to help Gorilla76 gather insights from his team so that he could direct his attention to the right culture initiatives at the right time.

That’s when a close friend of his introduced him to Officevibe, the people-first platform that offers a new approach to improving the employee experience.

“It made sense for me to check out this tool as something to have in my arsenal. It was a low risk. So, it was a no-brainer to give it a shot.”

It didn’t stop at gathering insights and acting on them. Over the years, Gorilla76 has used Officevibe to drive employee engagement with the easy-to-use recognition, goal-setting, anonymous feedback, and one-on-one meeting tools.

The cherry on top of the sundae? With Officevibe’s reporting tools, not only was fostering a strong culture possible but so was measuring and improving it regularly. Since implementing the tool in 2017, Jon continuously reports engagement metrics on a weekly basis to Gorilla76’s strategic planning committee.
