Culture Code by Culture Labx

What is company culture? Great question. While wikipedia’s definition is a good place to start, we at Culture Labx thought we’d break it down to see if we could do better. In the process we couldn’t stop ourselves from creating something more sharable than just a blog post. And so, The Culture Code was born.
