On March 30th, premier people analytics platform, ChartHop announced the acquisition of people operations workflow builder, Gather, that enables teams to manage their employee experience. The acquisition allows ChartHop to expand its capabilities in the area of automated workflow throughout the employee journey. The automation will help reduce the amount of manual work for HR and people operations executives who are tasked with retaining employees and developing organizational culture.
"We've seen a big shift in employee expectations and the way people teams create a meaningful work culture. More than ever, companies need to understand and support employees at every stage of the employee lifecycle. They need to create new avenues for human connection across an otherwise disconnected employee base. ChartHop has been the first people analytics solution to provide a great experience for the whole company, not just the HR team. The acquisition of Gather rounds out our existing capabilities of supporting a positive employee journey, providing greater insight into the employee experience and making people teams more efficient."
- Ian White, founder and CEO of ChartHop
"At Gather, we changed the way that HR and People teams operated. Joining ChartHop, we're incredibly excited by the opportunity to empower every person at a company to turn their team's data into action. Pairing Gather's workflow capabilities with ChartHop's people analytics unlocks limitless possibilities for people leaders building out the future of the workplace."
- John Wetzel, CEO at Gather
Gather is the first company acquired by ChartHop since it was founded in 2019. The announcement comes on the heels of ChartHop securing Series B funding worth $35 million from investor Andreessen Horowitz in the second quarter of 2021. The company also partnered with Jobvite recently. It onboarded Matt Wolf as Chief Financial Officer, and Ivory Johnson as Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.
