HR ANALYTICS, EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Businesswire | April 04, 2023
Glue, a leading employee engagement company formerly known as Mystery, today announced a new AI-powered connection platform that uses machine learning and network analysis to uncover connection opportunities for distributed teams. This new platform enables a deeper, live view into distributed workforces and empowers HR and People leaders to understand and act on data.
As part of this news, Glue is also announcing the acquisition of PopStage, a HR software company focused on creating virtual experiences. Integrating the capabilities of these two engagement platforms will further enhance the distributed employee workforce experience.
“We hear over and over—from people leaders, employees, and exec teams—that building relationships is the hardest part of remote work. And the data shows that when employees are disconnected, they’re three times more likely to quit,” said Shane Kovalsky, Co-founder and CEO of Glue. “With our acquisition of PopStage and the launch of our newest connection platform, we’re further helping customers unlock the power of employee connections and driving retention.”
The new Glue platform uses state of the art machine learning, recommendation, optimization, network science, and modeling across 10M+ real-time data points to help people leaders maximize employee connection and engagement. Sequencing and optimization machine learning models work within the new platform to help learn what is working to keep companies connected, and what interventions can be taken to give leaders the highest ROI for moving connection and engagement.
The launch of Glue’s new platform and the acquisition demonstrate the company’s commitment to helping organizations build connections that drive retention. Unlike survey-based employee engagement platforms, Glue gives HR and People teams access to real-time connection data based on employees’ digital interactions. This way leaders can proactively take action and measure ROI, without waiting for quarterly or biannual survey results.
“Glue takes the guesswork out of employee engagement. Their platform proactively identifies connection opportunities across Coda and brings people together with experiences my employees actually want to do,” said Kenny Mendes, Head of People & Operations at Coda.
Glue’s recent customer data shows that 90% of employees prefer their experiences and that utilizing the Glue platform leads to a better understanding of employee problems making the solution 20x more impactful to the bottom line.
Glue, formerly known as Mystery, builds technology empowering distributed teams to stick together. Through an AI-powered connection algorithm HR and People leaders understand and act on the relationships within their organizations. Glue’s platform also utilizes Meetups, Events, and Pulse surveys to build connections that further drive retention. Glue is backed by leading investors including Greylock, Moving Capital, Endeavor, and Gaingels. For more information, please visit glue.co.

EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE, EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Raydiant | April 11, 2023
Raydiant, the industry-leading Experience OS for physical locations, launched the Task Management feature on their Employee Experience (EX) platform today. Along with other features such as Reward and Recognition, this new tool enhances how brick-and-mortar businesses interact with frontline employees by creating a command center for task management that boosts productivity, streamlines workflows, and ensures clear communication between employees and employers.
Task Management is included in the Employee Experience platform's Messaging and Communication capabilities. Task messages can be sent in the app's Huddle feed, a centralized newsfeed for employee messages. Up to 20 subtasks can be added to a Task message, and the sender can assign tasks to any combination of employees or teams. Employees can check off subtasks once they have been completed, and these updates can be viewed by task senders as well as other employees in real time. Visibility from both sides minimizes the potential for confusion and ensures tasks can be completed efficiently. Senders can also set up recurring task messages for processes that need to be repeated regularly. Automating repetitive procedures reduces the administrative burden on managers and business owners.
The Task Management feature will boost productivity, streamline workflows, ensure clear communication, and improve employee satisfaction and engagement. It is perfect for various businesses, including restaurants, retail stores, hospitality, and service providers. It is especially relevant for brick-and-mortar businesses that must manage multiple shifts of frontline workers whose schedules often change.
"We are excited to bring Task Management to our Employee Experience solution," said Bobby Marhamat, CEO of Raydiant. "This addition to our platform offers our customers another way to engage their workers, streamline messaging to their employees, and improve the overall customer experience."
The Task Management feature is now available for all Employee Experience (EX) customers. For businesses interested in learning more about Task Management and Employee Experience (EX), visit Raydiant.
Raydiant is the leading in-location Experience OS for the world's most renowned restaurants, retail, hospitality, banking, and brands.
