The Workvivo Story

2017

Workvivo was founded in 2017 by CEO John Goulding and CTO Joe Lennon on a strong desire to improve the working experience of every employee on the planet.

With their extensive first-hand experience in creating successful HR technology, they had come to see the challenges and opportunities evident in employee engagement.

They founded Workvivo with the sole mission to build a different employee communication platform geared to elevate the employee experience for everyone.

Today

Fast forward to 2022 and Workvivo has grown to become the highest-rated employee app globally, with customers such as TELUS International, Amazon, and Mercedes Benz.

The company raised $16 million in venture capital in 2020 from Tiger Global, Frontline Ventures and Enterprise Ireland.

The team has now grown 100+ with members in Ireland, the UK and USA.

Our Values

Commitment

We are totally committed to the success of our customers and their employees.

We live the experience with our customers, it’s the only way we can do what we do.

Professionalism

We are a team of professionals who know how to engage employees.

We like to play, but we are serious about what we do.

Innovation

We’re aware of what our customers face in addressing communication challenges today.

We’re successful because we think outside the box and we challenge our customers to do  the same.

Playfulness

We practice what we preach by combining what we need to achieve as a business with  what we like to do as a team.

We believe you have to mix seriousness and playfulness in order to stay engaged and  enthused.

Loyalty

We are fanatically loyal to our customers and to each other.

Working so closely with our customers means we quickly become personally invested – and that creates powerful loyalty.

Wondering about the name?

Vivo means ‘with life and vigour’ and we are obsessed with improving the working lives of employees globally.

It’s time to reimagine your company engagement and culture
