Sausalito, CA – May 20, 2019 – Arnowitz Culture Agency (ACA) today announced that the company has been named one of the “Top 10 Employee Engagement Consulting/Services Companies – 2019” by HR Tech Outlook. In determining this year’s list, the magazine turned to a panel of chief executive officers (CEOs), chief human resource officers (CHROs), and analysts. The panel selected ACA and nine other companies “based on their passion to drive innovation in the field of employee engagement and their commitment to guiding organizations to the next level.” The 2019 list was published on April 19, 2019 in the HR Tech Outlook Employee Engagement Special edition.
“Several studies and research over the last few years have shown that organizations that dedicate themselves to employee engagement have outpaced their competitors,” Hanna Wilson, HR Tech Outlook managing editor, observed in the Employee Engagement Special edition Editor’s Note. “In this new era of new age technologies, we highlight the innovative employee engagement solution providers who are at the vanguard of accelerating the digital transformation of the industry.”
The growing complaints from workforces and customers across the world is amazingly similar no matter the industry.
- “I do not have enough time.”
- “They are throwing too much training (or reports, or customer data, etc.) at me.”
- “Goals are changing too fast (or not fast enough).”
- “No one cares what I think and/or know.”
Employees and teams struggle to keep up with the blinding speed of the delivery of information, big data insights, disruptive technologies, evolving communication channels, and cultural diversity issues.
The digital transformation strategy was meant to help employees battle these issues, but in many ways, it has accelerated the problems. Employees need the right habits to prioritize, collaborate, create and curate actionable information into successful business results. Businesses often focus on speed and excellence in using and acting on customer insights. Instead, how about acting on employee development insights? The employee journey (investments in developing habits) ensures employee collaboration, engagement, creativity, and innovation can quickly adapt to organizational and market changes. Aligning employee and customer journeys has become the most critical challenge facing global business today. Succeeding in only one of these two journeys creates a severe competitive disadvantage.

Everyone agrees corporate culture development is important. But how can you tell if a culture change program is working? How can you see if there is any real business impact? How can you measure culture ROI?
David Arnowitz shares insights from his company’s successes in creating a Culture ROI framework in a video from the Shocase presents Creatively Speaking podcast series hosted by Debra Carney.
Our journey at ACA is focused on improving Corporate Culture–the expression of aspirational values into practical action. A journey fueled by our belief that individual, team and company performance can be improved in synergy with one another. We use our creativity to foster creativity in others ability to solve problems and overcome cultural divides.
The journey has seen our team explore the corporate pain points of recruiting, onboarding, career development, corporate cause, employee engagement, training, best practices, knowledge management, corporate communications, event programs, cultural intelligence and, of course, culture change. The simple truth is–culture runs through all these issues–living our values as individuals, teams, and companies by acting on our values. Let me say that again, acting on our values. It is through ‘doing’ that we can improve or lose what we cherish most in our culture. Identifying the behaviors and practices we want to improve is what true culture change (for the better) is about. From employee celebrations, meeting practices to complex customer experiences–a good culture is the way an organization can quickly adapt to any disruption and/or business problem.
We created this blog to explore the insights of global thought-leaders and the results of our culture practice:
- Investigate behaviors and habits that improve corporate culture
- Obstacles to improving culture
- Criteria for judging culture
- Role of technology in culture building
- Corporate culture ROI and impact
- Happiness metric(s) for your culture
- Culture impact on different corporate capabilities and functions
- Review culture program frameworks
The one certainty about this journey is that it will evolve and change. I am certain to return to this welcome post and all our posts, to update and refine these thoughts in light of new insights from outside and within. For this is the unchanging truth of culture–it is always changing. The real choice is how do you participate in the change.
We at ACA welcome and thank everyone that will join us on this journey!
