As CEO of a global data services company, Julian Box had a mission to build a great employee culture. So Julian partnered with educational leader Carl Howarth to investigate. And one concept became very clear.
Strong individual and team connections — a sense of “belonging” for employees — are key to developing a more highly engaged workforce, a positive culture and greater business performance.
So Julian and Carl founded Vybbe, an app that employees use to identify how “connected” they feel to their fellow employees. Vybbe then aggregates this data to form a view of your culture — and who is contributing to your high-performance culture and who might need some help.
Privately owned, Vybbe has customers in Europe and North America and offices in the U.K. and Canada.

As Vybbe Founders, we're passionate about building great workplace cultures. Our collective experiences have shown us how important a strong culture is to employees feeling engaged and inspired, and to performing at their best.
