Data that Makes a Difference

Workhuman literally wrote the book on making work human, and we’ve got a database of more than 50 million points of human workplace connections. Even if you’re not a numbers person, you can trust that the data offers actionable insights on key workforce shifts and what’s essential now for a human work experience.

Workhuman Certified recognizes promise and progress, not perfection, across these 8 areas:

Opportunities for growth
  • Employees at all levels have opportunities to learn and develop, with feedback and guidance that helps map their future inside (or outside) the organization.
Fair pay
  • Employees have confidence that decisions affecting pay are unbiased and fair.
  • Employees feel a sense of inclusion and safety when it comes to learning, contributing, and challenging the status quo. They have control over their personal information and feel secure that their data is protected.
Environmental and social stewardship
  • Employees feel pride in how the organization cares for society and the environment.
Purpose-driven work
  • Employees understand their impact and feel a direct connection between their jobs and company values.
  • A percentage of payroll (e.g., 1%) is allocated to employee appreciation to ensure all employees regularly experience meaningful recognition moments.
Work-life harmony
  • The full humanity of every employee is acknowledged and celebrated.
A culture of belonging
  • Employees are valued as their authentic selves at work, with mental health/wellbeing and flexibility initiatives prioritized.
