Meet Jessica

portrait of Jessica Kriegel, workplace culture keynote speaker
For 15+ years, Jessica has been guiding global, national, Fortune 100, and other organizations on how to create intentional cultures that accelerate performance.

After receiving her MBA, Jessica became a global consultant for a human capital management solutions provider. Through her experience, she witnessed countless highly-stressed leaders failing to deliver against lofty financial goals. She knew that if these leaders could transform their cultures, performance and profitability would follow. But, because culture is often viewed as an intangible element of business, these leaders didn’t know where to begin.

So, Jessica set out on a mission to quantify culture. Her doctoral research and consulting engagements with Oracle, Toyota, Lockheed Martin, Federal Reserve, to name a few, led to the Culture Equation – a tested model where strategy combined with culture empowers your people to deliver consistent results.

In 2022, Jessica joined Culture Partners as Chief Scientist of Workplace Culture, where she now focuses on the strategy of culture by applying data-driven insights to dismantle the chaos of poor morale, low performance, and missed financial goals. Leaders lean on her to ask questions that their internal resources may be too afraid or unaware to ask and get the results they need. Her unique ability to analyze organizations in qualitative and quantitative terms and create measurable growth across all levels has made her the go-to ally for global leaders and teams.

Dr. Jessica Kriegel is an engaging, insightful, and compelling speaker. She enthralled our in-person all-company meeting for over 2 hours and kept our attention rapt throughout by engaging the audience with humor, wisdom, and authentic dialogue. What’s so impressive about her is the way she connected content that was as relevant to our senior executives as it was to folks at the beginning of their career journeys—drawing rave reviews along the way.
