After spending years in the Human Capital Management industry watching companies struggle with getting to the root cause of retention issues, our founders decided to do something about it. In the summer of 2017, the team put their heads together to brainstorm not just what would work to improve retention, but what would make the process exceedingly easy to manage and see results. Our Employee Retention Platform was born.
