Culture Amp announced this week that it has acquired values recognition startup Disco for an undisclosed sum. The Disco team has joined Culture Amp, with former CEO and co-founder Jeremy Vandehey taking the role of Director of Product at Culture Amp.

Disco was founded in 2015 by Jeremy Vanderhey, Justin Vanderhey and Joseph Estrada, and the app is integrated into Slack and Microsoft Teams. Didier Elzinga, CEO and co-founder of Culture Amp, said that the addition of Disco will enhance Culture Amp's platform: “This acquisition allows us to expand the tools available to our customers to recognise their values at work, to bolster our flow of work and integration expertise, and to drive meaningful change and deeper insights across organisations.” 

Also this week, Culture Amp announced that Anna Binder, Head of People Operations at Asana, has been appointed to the Board of Directors. Binder has led Asana's people function since 2016, and under her direction, Asana was accoladed for its people-centric workplace practices by Inc. Magazine, Fortune, and Glassdoor. Prior to Asana, she was Vice President of People at MuleSoft.

Elzinga said of Binder's addition to the board: “During Anna’s time at Asana, the company has been recognized for building a culture powered by clarity, co-creation and inclusion. Anna is a world-renowned leader in the people and culture space and strongly believes that culture is a core driver of business success. I have been a long time admirer of how intentionally Anna, and Dustin [Dustin Moskovitz, CEO of Asana], have built and scaled their Culture and built their company around it. I am excited for the insight and experience Anna will bring to our board.”
