Building meaningful connections through magical experiences.

Mystery is on a mission to make people as happy as possible at work. We started in 2019 as a company obsessed with bringing more surprise and delight to people’s lives. Now, Mystery uses experience design to help your employees develop real, meaningful connections—boosting engagement, productivity, and retention.

Obsessing over connection and community is what we do, and we’re not going to stop until every employee is happy and close to their team.

The science of a happy team
We use people science, technology, and human touch to foster meaningful connections—making people as happy as possible at work and boosting company performance growth while we’re at it.
Retention is a problem

40% of employees say they are at least somewhat likely to quit in the next 3-6 months.

The value of belonging

Many employers understate the value of a sense of belonging, but employees think it’s a driving factor of attrition.

Shared experiences foster connections

Using activities to take the stress out of conversation reduces self-consciousness and makes connections easier to grow.

Friends equal better work

Friends are more committed to projects, offer positive encouragement, and evaluate ideas more critically.
