Hi, we’re Leapsome

We make work
fulfilling for everyone

People spend 80,000 hours at work throughout an average lifetime. The work we all do defines us one way or another. Yet many of us lack clarity and support to do our best. Alignment and purpose get lost in the noise of day-to-day business. Instead of being a source of inspiration and energy, work becomes a strain.

At Leapsome, we tackle this problem with a people enablement platform that helps organizations (and the people that make them) prosper. Our platform helps employees grow, enables managers to become better leaders, and empowers CEOs to build truly great places to work. It is our mission to make all those hours we spend working more fulfilling — for everyone.

Our story

Leapsome is the people management platform that drives employee engagement, performance, and learning.

“Our vision translates into millions of employees feeling engaged and fulfilled at their workplace. Fulfilled employees have clarity on their goals, performance, and the direction the company is headed towards. They feel supported by their managers and peers, and receive honest, actionable feedback that boosts personal development and growth. Essentially, our product is a transformation catalyst.”

Platform

Our platform combines tools for goal and OKR management, performance and 360° reviews, learning, onboarding, engagement surveys, feedback and praise, and 1:1 and team meetings.

People

Your people deserve to feel fulfilled by what they do. And their engagement can result in 23% more profitability, 81% less absenteeism, 66% more well-being, and reduced turnover. (Gallup, 2020)

Purpose

You can achieve so much by investing in your people. Leapsome exists to help you get there — and that’s why forward-thinking companies choose us.

Why we started Leapsome

Leapsome was founded in 2016 by Jenny von Podewils and Kajetan von Armansperg. Having witnessed the growing pains of fast-paced companies, they learned firsthand how crucial good processes for feedback, alignment, and engagement are.

Supporting people-focused industry transformations


Our founders realized that the absence of effective people enablement processes puts a strain on working relationships and is detrimental to individual and organizational growth. And this fueled their shared vision: to make work fulfilling for everyone and help companies develop their people and scale their businesses.

Social responsibility


Jenny and Kajetan are building a company with a culture they felt was missing in the corporate and tech worlds. This includes a commitment to social and environmental causes, which became even more critical to our founders after their experiences working in cleantech and South America. We’re carbon-neutral and we’ve recently donated to great causes including Against Malaria Foundation, Berliner Obdachlosenhilfe, and Camino Seguro/Safe Passage.

We’re an equal opportunity employer


Besides being co-owned by Jenny, we have other women in different levels of leadership. We’re committed to DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion), we’ve created the Future of Work Graduate Program to support people starting their careers, and we intend to do much more.

We’re an international, diverse team


Our team members come from multiple countries (right now, we speak 13 languages) and have fascinating and diverse backgrounds and interests. As a science-backed platform, we have several psychologists on board. And we also have cooks, dancers, yoga teachers, soccer players, gamers, musicians, business coaches, triathletes... You name it! And they all help us make work fulfilling for everyone.
