Our Story

Culture from Day One 

Meghan Kirkland & Rike Stein, Culture@Heart Company Founders

We came together in 2022 with a common purpose to build better workplaces for generations to come. 

With a combined 30 years of experience in Consumer Goods, Financial Services, and Professional Services across the People & Culture spectrum and in many countries throughout the world (think adventures in Australia, China, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, the UK) .. we have seen a lot! 

All these experiences have shown us that 'Culture' is the differentiator when it comes to employee experience, business performance & creating workplaces where people show up energised and excited every day. 


Developing Culture, however, is often seen as a secondary objective or a 'nice to have'; dismissed as something 'too hard' to do or 'too soft' to measure. Culture is complex after all- encompassing everything from leadership behaviours, to how you collaborate as a team, to even if/how many emoji's you use in your slack messages... and everything in between! 


We want to change this.


We believe Culture sits at the heart of both the human experience and business success. Organisations of the future need to be able to intentionally build Culture, and now more than ever is the time to Build Culture with Purpose.  

For larger trainings & workshops we work together with a network of independent Coaches & Trainers.
