We’re dog people.
But more than that, we believe that when we make work better, we make the world better.
Truly. When people feel good about coming to work, they show up at home as better parents, spouses and citizens. We’ve all had a rough day at work and shown up as our less than ideal selves at home. And rough days will happen, they just shouldn’t happen chronically. This is why we measure the happiness of your employees.
Our Happy Clients say it best.

Founded on Real World Experience & Research
Kris Boesch is the CEO and Founder of Choose People. Choose People launched the summer of 2010. Prior to Choose People, Kris was the CEO of Exodus Moving & Storage. When Kris came to Exodus the culture was toxic and the company was financially struggling. She didn’t have money to throw at the employees to make them happy and moving wasn’t a “sexy” job with great pay and benefits.
Kris knew that if her employees felt good about coming to work, they would take good care of the customers, who in turn would take care of the financial health of the company. She understood that it wasn’t the executive team that took the piano up the switch back stair case, it was the moving crew.
Step by step she turned the culture around. And under her leadership, and under this business model, Exodus Moving & Storage achieved 40% less turnover than the industry average and a bottom-line twice that same average.
Yet Exodus was just one company, one success. This is what led Kris to collaborate with the Industrial Organizational Psychology Department at Colorado State University in 2009 to find out what makes employees feel good about coming to work and how to measure it – across US companies of many different ilks – B to B, B to C, large, small, blue collar, white collar, for-profit, non-profit.
Over 1000 hours of research later they had their answers and laid the foundation for the Choose People 360 Company Culture Audit.
