NEW YORK — ChartHop, the dynamic People Analytics Platform, today announced its acquisition of Gather, a people operations workflow builder that helps scaling teams coordinate their employee experience. With the acquisition, ChartHop is advancing its capabilities in automated workflows across the entire employee journey. This automation reduces the manual burdens placed on HR and People Operations professionals who are charged with nurturing company culture and ensuring employee retention.
The employee experience has become a priority for organizations that want to defeat the effects of the “Great Resignation” and improve their ability to attract top talent and retain current employees. According to Gartner®, 87% of employees are currently unsatisfied with their experience in the workplace. As a result, organizations are investing in platforms that improve the experience without additional time and effort from HR teams. This acquisition further solidifies ChartHop’s position as an essential platform for everyone in an organization, going beyond HR teams to include executives, managers and employees.
“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,” said Ian White, founder and CEO of ChartHop. “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.”
With the acquisition of Gather, ChartHop further narrows the gap between organizations and their employees by allowing companies to communicate and celebrate with employees at critical moments in an employee’s experience, such as onboarding, work anniversaries and performance reviews. Coupling automated workflows with ChartHop’s people analytics solution allows companies to take action on their people data.
“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,” said John Wetzel, CEO at Gather. “Pairing Gather’s workflow capabilities with ChartHop’s people analytics unlocks limitless possibilities for people leaders building out the future of the workplace.”
Gather is ChartHop’s first acquisition since the company’s founding in 2019. The announcement comes during a time of rapid growth, including a $35M Series B led by return investor Andreessen Horowitz in Q2 2021, a partnership with Jobvite and the addition of Matt Wolf, Chief Financial Officer, and Ivori Johnson, Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging.
