A Cork-based employee communications platform has opened its California office and recruited a Head of US Sales to build on rapid growth in the North American market.
Workvivo has reported significant demand from the US market since the Covid-19 outbreak as employers race to communicate effectively with staff who are working from home.
The company already has a number of US based clients including Telus International, Seneca Entertainment, Netgear and A+E Networks.
Workvivo posted record global growth in its first full year of business in 2019, and expects to have one million employees on the platform by 2021.
The company has set a target of being the global leader in the employee communications technology market, to mirror the success of Zoom and Slack in their respective markets.
The new Head of US Sales, Brian Merical, said he is “delighted” to be joining the team.
CEO and founder of Workvivo, John Goulding said: “We’ve seen significant traction in North America, so we decided now was the right time to establish a physical presence in California and to bring on a senior sales executive with experience in the HR tech world.”
