CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HubSpot, a leading growth platform, announced a new podcast mini series, Culture Happens. Hosted by HubSpot employees and leadership, the podcast is inspired by Dharmesh Shah, HubSpot’s Co-Founder and creator of the Culture Code, who said, “Culture Happens. So, why not build a culture people love?” With five episodes on a variety of workplace culture topics - from allyship in the workplace to remote work, Culture Happens is now available on iTunes, Spotify and wherever you listen to podcasts.

“Our mission with the Culture Happens podcast is to bring important workplace conversations and topics to life,” said Katie Burke, Chief People Officer. “Diversity and inclusion has many layers, and talking openly about those layers often feels like a taboo in the workplace. But to build a company where everyone feels they belong, it’s critical to create safe spaces where conversations like these can happen. I’m really proud of our team for being transparent about workplace culture and sharing their own challenges, successes and lessons learned with the world.”

The podcast mini series features five episodes that dig into their own layer of diversity:

When Libby Maurer, Vice President of User Experience at HubSpot, was asked to be a part of Culture Happens’ episode on mental health, she knew that while being honest and open about the topic isn’t always easy, the impact far outweighs the fear.

“Treating employees as people means caring about their mental health and well-being at work and outside of it,” said Libby Maurer. “There’s a lot of power in vulnerability and I’ve learned over time that coping with a mental illness such as depression is one of my greatest skills. I hope to encourage others to be vulnerable and demonstrate that it can lead to connection. And connection drives empathy, and empathy drives innovation.”

With transparency as one of HubSpot’s core culture values, Culture Happens is yet another way to openly share about internal diversity programming and learnings, and create an external open dialogue with employees, candidates, customers, and beyond.

Culture Happens podcast will join HubSpot’s suite of podcasts, including The Growth Show and Weird Work. To learn more about HubSpot’s podcasts and to listen to episodes, visit www.hubspot.com/podcasts.
