About Us

Who We Are

We are a software and consulting firm founded in 2017 by D.C. native, Lola Han, focusing on compensation. After spending time in San Francisco soaking up all she could from tech companies like Zendesk, she started CultivatePeople. By bridging east and west coast People practices and trends, we help companies stay in touch with new ways of doing things. CultivatePeople specializes in partnering with companies to attract and retain employees, as well as supporting them in scaling and growing. 

What We Do

With a white-glove approach, CultivatePeople helps companies establish competitive compensation for employees, painlessly. As thought partners, we introduce progressive, globally proven practices, including enhancing pay equity and transparency in the workplace. CultivatePeople works as an extension of your team. We don’t just recommend what a company should do, we roll up our sleeves and help make it happen! #getshitdone
