About Us

Our Purpose
Bringing Joy to the Workplace

Our Mission
To help create amazing companies that believe in a new way of doing business, prioritizing the people and the planet alongside profits. We do this through innovative training, workshops, and programs around building sustainable employee engagement.

We’re here because of our WHY

“The most extraordinary people in the world today don’t just have a career, they have a purpose.”

Simon Sinek, bestselling author

We’re with bestselling author and speaker Simon Sinek on this one – people don’t really care what you do, they care about why you do it.

According to Gallup, 85% of the global workforce is disengaged at work. This to us is a tragedy—and we want to change that!

At Evoloshen, we constantly remind ourselves of our company purpose:
Bringing Joy to the Workplace.

Our Values & Manifesto Guide Us

It’s important to have strong values leading a team and a company, just as it is for an individual. We live by four values we have collectively voted for internally. These values are reflected across the board, leading us behind decisions we make with our teams, our partners, and our customers.

Passionate & Purpose Driven
We use our passion and energy to create happiness and we love what we do! We are energized and inspire others. Our purpose is to bring joy to the workplace and it’s contagious! We know that being passionate and purpose driven is the best way to reach your full potential.

High Integrity
We believe that honesty, transparency, and respect are the foundation to any business relationship. We are open-minded and strive to come from a place of service at all times. We believe in bringing high value in all that we do.

Delivering Excellence
Our attitude and motivation comes from Making It Happen! We are ambitious, creative, innovative, and believe in delivering the WOW factor in all that we do. We dare to step out of the box and our excitement is contagious, all while delivering high value and excellence.

We Care
We believe strongly in contributing to making our world a better place. We understand how collaborating and supporting each other is for the greater good of all. We believe that giving is having more and that we can use business as a force for good. That’s why all of our business activities have a positive impact connected to them. We genuinely care for our colleagues and customers—they are our extended family and friends! And we truly want the best for everyone at all times!

The Motivation Behind Our Work

Bringing Joy to the workplace with a new business model using innovation mixed in with corporate training and cultural hacking is our formula for success!

While many look at global problems like economic growth, workforce effectiveness, employee turnover, chronic skills gaps and focus their time and energy fixing the problem, we take a different approach. How?


“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

Buckminster Fuller, scientist and futurist

And that’s exactly what we’re doing—helping our clients to create an engaging and purposeful business culture where employees are thriving.

We work with our client companies to build new engaging models that make today’s problematic models obsolete, and at the heart of our approach is “cultural hacking.” Thus, “culture hacking” is the art of involving people and education in smart effective ways to rapidly “recode” and advance culture, altering in the process the behaviors of everyday individuals to make them adopt smarter practices that elevate their lives.

What Does Evoloshen Mean?

We believe that we are all on a journey…a journey of continuous growth and development. So we are constantly evolving as individuals, teams, and organizations. Evoloshen means “evolving spirit” because we touch the hearts and souls of people and organizations and help in reaching your full potential.
