Over the last 7 years, working with thousands of customers, we've learned a thing or two about employee feedback and created the following classes to share that knowledge, as well as provide a platform for customers to connect with one another.
Each interactive class is roughly 90-minutes, including sharing of Culture Amp content and expertise, in-platform demonstration, and ends with an update on what's changed in the product.
There are roughly 2 masterclasses hosted each month. You can see the complete schedule, posted at the start of each quarter, in our customer masterclass hub. While we hope you can meet us live so you can ask questions and interact with other people geeks, we understand you may want to start your learning journey now. Below, you'll find links to condensed recordings of the classes by clicking on the class title.
