How do you measure company culture? How seriously should a CEO consider it and how can it be improved? This week we meet Didier Elzinga from Australian start-up Culture Amp, a company revolutionising the ‘people-analytics’ industry. Meanwhile, with the news that advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy has created an emotionally needy robot that roams the company’s Portland office, we profile this experiment in how artificial intelligence affects the workplace. Plus: is the grass always greener for the sun-starved cubicle dweller? We send our sound engineer to a goat farm to find out.
