Cultivate is a people analytics platform that empowers managers to optimize productivity and retain top talent.  We provide real-time and predictive analytics for companies and managers in areas of engagement analysis, bias awareness, and resource alignment.  Our mission is to help companies provide their employees a more engaging, fulfilling, and productive workplace by continuously improving the manager-employee relationship.
