We help you make the connection between communication, engagement and business performance.


We have the spark to produce
inventive and compelling
communications, rooted in research
insights and hardwired to your
business strategy and priorities.


Rigorous engagement research is
at the heart of everything we do,
producing the insights which
inform engagement strategy and
creative campaigns.

What does that actually mean?


We offer industry-leading employee research that generates powerful insights tailored to your organisation’s needs. Our strikingly visual reports show time-poor business leaders what the numbers really mean.


We always root employee engagement strategy in research findings, using reliable insights to shape the right strategy and narrative for the reality of an organisation’s needs.


We speak ‘human’ and use sharp visuals to connect with employees and to connect them with organisational priorities. And we stay analytical in our creative communications, hardwiring them to organisational priorities and measuring engagement impact.


We also provide focused coaching and training that equips and enables business and team managers to engage their teams more effectively through communication.

Who we are

We would say we're great...

  • We take employee engagement so seriously we’re employee-owned.
  • That’s because we know the impact fully engaged employees have on business performance. We don’t just believe it, we work on that principle, quite literally.
  • Combine that with nimble minds, years of experience and some seriously hard work, and you have a team of engagement experts that fuel real improvement in business performance.

Don't take our word for it...

  • Since establishing Karian and Box, we’ve never lost a client
  • We continue to grow through referral and client advocacy
