About Us

Who We Are

CultivatePeople is a team of compensation experts dedicated to simplifying compensation practices. Founded by Lola Han in 2017, CultivatePeople partners with companies to attract, retain, and engage employees through a comprehensive compensation strategy. 

After spending time in San Francisco as Head of Compensation at companies like Zendesk, Lola returned to DC and assembled a team of compensation experts to improve the way companies handle their compensation on a global scale. Our team of engineers developed a software to make compensation painless. 

What We Do

CultivatePeople is an extension of your team. We help you create a competitive compensation process tailored to your company’s unique needs. 

As thought partners, we introduce globally proven compensation practices. The CultivatePeople team doesn’t just recommend what a company should do, we roll-up our sleeves and help make it happen! #getshitdone
