Who We Are

WorkXO is a workforce technology and analytics firm focused primarily on empowering leaders with the business intelligence they need to get and stay intentional about managing their workplace cultures. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of QuestionPro, a global survey-analytics firm.

WorkXO's founders, leaders, team, and advisors bring a gazillion years of organizational experience to WorkXO, but the journeys that brought them here is anything but typical. Their backgrounds include studying modern art, working in areas of ethnic conflict, leading Human Resources functions for large multi-national organizations, and changing organizational cultures. They’ve been CEOs, consulted to CEOs, and, when necessary, circumvented CEOs. Corporate, nonprofit, government, big, small, local, global—they’ve seen it all.

We are, above all, committed to re-humanizing the workplace through functional technology and actionable data.


Enabled by functional technology and actionable data, we share a vision for an evolving workplace that is increasingly based in the power of human community, authentic connections, and an agile alignment of what drives an organization's success with what's right for its workforce. 


We share the mission of upgrading work, while helping organizations intentionally manage their workforce experience and the culture that fuels it.

Jamie Notter began his career in the international conflict resolution field, designing and delivering conflict resolution training programs in areas of ethnic conflict in the 1990s. He transitioned into organizational work, initially as a diversity trainer and consultant, and later leading his own management consulting practice where he specialized in helping systems work through the most difficult conversations. In the end, he realized that no matter what kind of work he was doing inside organizations, it all came back to culture, so that is his focus.
