[ Why This Matters ]
Trust + belonging = better performance.
The power of personal connections at work is, in large part, grossly untapped by businesses. It's ironic, considering that 79% of engaged employees cite relationships with co-workers as the top condition for being engaged. Connection leads to engagement, and engagement leads to performance.
[ The Anthym Experience ]
Human connection reimagined.
We help people surface & tell their authentic stories, facilitate sharing those stories with colleagues in a safe & trusting environment, and foster a culture of connection with ongoing, meaningful connection activities scheduled via our platform.
We all have an authentic story to tell. But telling that story effectively can be difficult or uncomfortable for most of us. anthym's storytelling wizard guides you through the process by using experiential triggers like music, movies, books & other inspirational media to help surface and document pivotal or impactful moments & experiences in your life – your own personal life anthym. It's truly like taking a trip down memory lane – there's nothing else quite like it. Your anthym then becomes the sharing bridge to build deeper, more authentic connections with others.
Once members of a group or team have completed their initial intro stories, leaders can choose to schedule story-sharing sessions between members via two delivery experiences. First, an anthym certified facilitator can lead & deliver a one-of-a-kind, 60-minute virtual team building experience using your video call platform of choice. Second, leaders may schedule ongoing virtual meetups between individuals or groups of members via the anthym platform. Either way, the depth and speed of connection reached will be unlike anything you've ever experienced before.
The days of sharing morning coffee in the kitchen, random collisions in the hallway, or grabbing lunch are gone. "New normal" alternatives like Zoom happy hours, virtual trivia, or auto-scheduled "watercooler" breaks on Slack are nice for breaking up the day and casual check-ins. But how well do people really get to know each other during these casual interactions? The anthym experience goes far beyond the casual with a proven method of using shared life moments & experiences to build a connection bridge of unparalleled depth & authenticity. The typical reaction goes something like this: "I've learned more about Desiree in the past 20-minutes than in two years sitting alongside her in the office."
A community that fosters a sense of belonging is needed now more than ever. Social isolation has created an epidemic of loneliness and mental exhaustion that only a community of truly connected & inspired people can alleviate. Beyond the initial anthym experience, leaders can set up company or team groups and invite members to participate in additional storytelling & sharing experiences available in anthym's library, or create custom experiences using a simple wizard. Think of it as your own "inspiration community," where members share the moments, experiences, traditions and inspirations that have shaped who they are.
anthym is pioneering insights-driven compatibility measurement in the workplace and beyond. At a high level, leaders will get to know their people better via anthym than any other channel. You'll better understand and connect with the human beings behind the titles by learning about the life experiences that have shaped who they are and what inspires them to do what they do. Behind the scenes, anthym will deliver compatibility insights that you can activate to strengthen existing teams and build new, all-star teams. Simply put, no other platform in the world can surface & deliver these unique insights.
[ Something for Everyone ]
An impactful experience for any use case.

Jackie Mohr | Associate General Counsel
"The anthym experience was an extremely powerful team connection experience. Simple, fun and deep - a combination that most team cohesion experiences aren't able to accomplish. Highly recommended!"
Ryan Edwards | Managing Director
"I have never experienced such a deep connection in a meeting of co-workers. Having the experience with anthym was so therapeutic. The ability to learn people’s background gave me a new love for who my colleagues are, and not just the work that they do. This type of connection is what life is about."
Silicon Valley Bank
Dave Rauch | Founder & CEO
"I've spent over 40 years looking for a great, effective way to accelerate the trust and relationships that are fundamental to a healthy business culture. While at Trader Joe's, and now at Daily Table, I've participated in numerous workshops and "experiences" that attempt to bond and form real connections as a group. I've never seen such a successful embrace of a process, and such a positive result as we recently had with the anthym virtual workshop. It brought our board and office team together in an effective, yet time efficient process. Everyone loved it! If you're looking for a smart way to strengthen the level of connection and trust among your teammates, I recommend anthym enthusiastically. You'll love it!”
Kristen Beckman | VP of Human Resources
"The anthym experience came to us at just the right time. It was an impactful team-building session that we definitely needed after a long busy season. The insights and experiences we shared will last with us for a long time. We are excited to look for other ways to include this platform into our employee development and onboarding programs. It was so fresh and so new and not like anything else I’ve ever experienced in my 20+ year HR career."
Jon Schafer | VP of Customer Experience
"As an avid concert-goer music has a big place in my life, so naturally I was thrilled when a music-based team building exercise was proposed to our leadership team. From the moment I started the assignment I was hooked on this concept! I thought “I get to use meaningful songs that evoke emotions/memories, and share them with my peers”? Learning about my peers using this method was not only fun but felt very easy for everyone involved…Kudos for creating a super simple and rewarding experience."
Nicole Vitale | Director of Alumni Events & Operations
"This new and exciting platform takes you on a musical journey while reflecting on meaningful moments in your life and then allowing you to share those moments with others. The experience allowed for memories and emotions to strengthen connections with teammates in a very impactful and delightful way. Perfect for companies, reunions, family gatherings, shared interest groups, etc. This is one musical experience you do not want to miss."
West Point Association of Graduates
Elizabeth Fisk | VP of Human Resources
"As the HR team for Applied Research Associates, we have the opportunity to participate in and organize team building activities for our company. The anthym experience was different from anything we’ve done before! It stimulated us to think about our histories, our stories, and share them through music in a very meaningful way. Our team is close-knit already, but this brought us even closer as we learned something new about one another. The anthym experience is a wonderful way to help us reflect and connect outside the day to day work experience, and it opens the door for deepening relationships of trust on a team.”
Dr. Josh Armstrong | Assistant Professor
"We integrated anthym into an online graduate team building course – the learning related to storytelling, connection, and trust resonated deeply with our students. Belonging and trust are the foundations for high performing teams and anthym provided a unique and authentic opportunity for creating community in our virtual classroom. Music connects deeply with our lived experiences and this platform provided a safe environment to share these meaningful moments.”
Gonzaga University | Organizational Leadership
Brian Burkhart | Founder & CEO
"Creating authentic, valuable connections with other like-minded people in your industry is half the reason organizations hold events. Unlike so many other attempts, anthym was instant, deep and fun. The people I met are now fully integrated into my network, we have engaging conversations built on an initial connection that actually mattered; anthym did that. Highly recommended!"
Adam Goodman | CEO
"We found anthym to be a fast track for instigating meaningful conversations between people who might not otherwise connect beyond a collegial level. For some reason, people are more comfortable being vulnerable and sharing life stories when it's in the context of talking about music. Employees who have known each other for over a decade are, for the first time, learning about their colleagues’ most prideful accomplishments, aching love affairs, and disappointing heartaches."
Goodmans Interior Structures
Julie Phillips | VP Employee Excellence
"The anthym experience was such a unique and engaging way to break down some of the virtual barriers that often dehumanize communication between colleagues. Even if you don't have a love of music, when I reflected back on moments in my life, certain artists and songs came to mind and it somehow brought my personal stories to life and drew parallels for others that allowed us to connect on a personal level. We saw each other as humans rather than employees in certain roles. It really brought out everyone's authentic self and created meaningful connections, especially during this time of social distancing! "
Shawn Olds | CEO
"As a rapidly-growing startup, we tend to focus the majority of our attention on activities that help scale the product and delight our customers. It is easy to overlook the activities that help scale the team. anthym was a timely experience for our team – helping us reconnect and refresh before heading into a demanding final quarter of the year. I have already highly recommended this to other entrepreneurs and investors."
Patrick Shelton | Chief Believer
"Our company, Benefit Plans Plus, recently partook in a team-building event hosted by anthym and it was an exhilarating experience. It turned introverts into storytellers, talkers into listeners, and created moments of unity, understanding, respect, and engagement between co-workers. I learned more about one of my colleagues in 10 minutes than I had in many years of service with them. anthym is such a valuable platform for its unique ability to bridge the gaps between people and form tighter bonds, and we are already reaping the benefits of our session.”

Matt Likens | President & CEO
"Approximately two months ago I became aware of Anthym, a program designed to bring people together by sharing select life experiences in combination with the music most meaningful to them while navigating through these experiences. What a brilliant idea! Brian Mohr was an outstanding facilitator of the process. Feedback from the team post-Anthym was also unanimous. POSITIVE! This proved to be an effective way to bring our team together in-person following the 15 months of COVID distancing. We will definitely plan on doing this again and are considering a wider roll-out within our organization.”
