Emplify Launches New Partner Program to Bring Employee Engagement Analytics to Leading Talent and Human Capital Management Service Providers

Company secures $7.5 million Series A round for product innovation and customer programs

INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 17, 2018) – Emplify, a leading employee engagement measurement company, today introduced the Emplify Partner Program for talent and human capital management consulting firms. The company also announced a $7.5 million Series A investment led by growth equity investor Edison Partners. Proceeds will be used for continued innovation of Emplify’s SaaS-based employee engagement solution and to accelerate market adoption with the new partnership program.

The new Emplify Partner Program enables talent and human capital management (HCM) consulting firms to attain, retain and grow their customer base through advanced employee engagement diagnostics and analytics. By leveraging the data and insights Emplify provides, HCMs can give their clients better guidance by pinpointing their most impactful areas of improvement.

“Employee engagement has traditionally been an abstract, nebulous area that leaders are unsure how to act on strategically,” said Santiago Jaramillo, CEO and cofounder of Emplify. “Now, thankfully, research exists to support the hypothesis that employee engagement is the best leading indicator of business performance. What companies still lack, however, is a metric to understand how people are doing at work and the clear action steps to help employees do the best work of their life. Emplify tackles this dual need head-on.”

In the last 18 months, Emplify has added more than 200 brands to its customer portfolio, including Terminus, Harley-Davidson, Appirio and Cheetah Digital, and has seen year-over-year annual recurring revenue increase 473 percent. The new Emplify Partner Program will also launch with a number of leading HCMs, including CultureShoc, Verve Health, Purple Ink, Performant Solutions and Diverse Talent Strategies.

"For several years, we've been looking for a professional and data-backed engagement measurement solution to supplement our culture training business. Emplify uniquely gives us the ability to observe specific data for clients with access to point-by-point feedback,” said Pete Honsberger, Integrator and Lead Facilitator at CultureShoc. “This partnership will empower CultureShoc to better help our clients, and in turn, take our business to new heights."

“Emplify’s impressive customer growth is indicative of the broader trend; more dollars are flowing into employee engagement solutions to reduce turnover and improve results in an ever changing and scarce talent market,” said Ryan Ziegler, General Partner at Edison Partners, who led the investment. “We’re thrilled to partner with Santiago and the Emplify team to fuel continued product innovation, as well as partner and customer adoption.”

Emplify is the only engagement measurement provider that fuses survey insights, employee communication and performance enhancement tactics to convert “actionable insights” into action. Business leaders of both traditional and distributed organizations need the ability to request, analyze and act on employee feedback to power better people decisions. Every Emplify customer is also paired with an Employee Engagement Strategist to guide leaders through action steps to improve overall engagement.
