Founding Story

For companies that care about their culture, Workify is the only all-in-one people management software platform that makes work better for employees and helps managers shape a culture that drives performance and improves business.

Our Story

Workify was founded to enable companies to unlock employee engagement and transform their culture. Business leaders in high-growth industries list culture and talent among their key concerns but lack real insight to their people and culture.

Workify is here to solve that problem by providing unprecedented access to employee data and insights, giving employees a voice to shape their organizations and drive alignment with positive action.

Stephen Huerta, Co-Founder & CEO

Stephen Huerta, Workify Co-Founder and CEO, had studied the invisible hand of culture and engagement during his time as a manager for business technology solutions and manager of project transitions at EY, then at Goldman Sachs as an HR associate for global ventures and later, as a vice president developing technology strategy and helping implement offshore operations. The pain Stephen saw both companies suffer due to disengaged employees — and his belief on how to turn that around — led him to launch a consultancy, prior to Workify, to help companies, like Apple, define their culture, measure employee engagement, and improve organizational commitment. Stephen’s Fortune 500 experience in HR paired with his strong consulting background helps Workify bring the right value to clients every day.

Dustin Wells, Co-Founder & Chairman

Dustin Wells, Workify Co-Founder and Chairman, previously founded Headspring, an enterprise software development firm. What led Dustin to appreciate and want to dive into cultivating the value of culture and engagement was that at Headspring, he realized that he would never be able to compete with larger companies that use their deep pockets to attract the best talent. Knowing he couldn’t compete on compensation, Dustin said, “I will compete on culture and engagement.” He soon became a culture and engagement thought leader in the software development world. Dustin brings 20 years of enterprise software experience to Workify along with a practical, hands-on approach to building and scaling company culture.
