“I was attracted to Humanyze by the opportunity to grow the company and expand enterprise understanding of ONA. Humanyze offers an industry-leading, data-based offering that is both unique and rooted in positively impacting both the business and its people,” said Nussbaum. “Over the next several months, my goal is to refine our go-to-market strategy and capabilities to help more companies achieve better business outcomes, and to lean in on how our platform empowers companies to make informed decisions and uncover their employee collaboration story.”
