In the first episode of Humanity Works Season 2, Craig Forman sits down with Didier Elzinga, Culture Amp Co-Founder and CEO, to talk about his alternative approach to compensation, how to build a movement, and his personal journey striving to create an anti-racist and equitable organisation.
Culture Amp was born from the desire to create a better world of work. The man behind that vision is Didier Elzinga.
