Companies are using Workvivo to connect and engage with employees in global locations, through internal communication, integrated pulse surveys, in-built tracking of goals and recognition of achievements. The cloud-based platform creates an emotional connection between the employee, the organisation and the organisation’s goals. Workvivo integrates seamlessly with existing software and reduces the number of platforms used in an organization.

Workvivo is desktop and mobile-based and the company is a HPSU Enterprise Ireland client. Co-founders John Goulding and Joe Lennon are former CEO and CTO respectively of CoreHR.

Speaking about the launch, CEO and co-founder John Goulding said: “We’re delighted to officially launch Workvivo. Recent Gallup research shows that 70% of workers in organisations globally are not engaged. The market is changing and is now recognising the greater effectiveness of employee engagement over outdated talent management and performance management strategies. Workvivo builds a culture of real-time employee recognition in a way that aligns with how employees want to interact with technology. By using Workvivo, our clients can expect improved staff retention, productivity and customer experience.”

Niall McEvoy, ICT Manager, High Potential Start-ups, Enterprise Ireland said: “Enterprise Ireland is committed to supporting indigenous companies as they realise their global ambition and Workvivo is a great example of an innovative Irish company with the ambition and potential to scale in international markets. We have worked closely with Workvivo’s co-founders, who have extensive knowledge of their markets, and the drive and know-how to lead this company to international success. We look forward to continuing to work with the team as they continue their growth trajectory.”

Workvivo is the first platform to combine an intuitive internal communications platform with a rewarding employee engagement experience. The familiar and functional user interface and experience allows the corporate message to be delivered in a non-corporate way, designed around ease-of-use and a sense of fun.
