Staffbase to Transform Workplace Culture with First Employee Experience App

Staffbase, the first Employee Experience Platform, is a single, custom-branded mobile app that engages employees from recruitment to retention to retirement. Today, companies like Adidas, Audi, Ogilvy, Siemens, TradeWinds Island Resorts, and many more are transforming their corporate cultures and engaging their employees, all through their mobile phones.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2017) - Staffbase today announced the opening of its New York offices and the rollout of the world's first Employee Experience Platform. Recognizing that employers need to connect with their teams effortlessly, Staffbase developed a single, custom-branded mobile app that engages employees from recruitment to retention to retirement. Today, companies like Adidas, Audi, Ogilvy, Siemens, TradeWinds Island Resorts, and many more are transforming their corporate cultures and engaging their employees, all through their mobile phones.

Gallup reports that a whopping 68% of employees feel disengaged at work. Intranets, email and social platforms fail to connect with these workers. This is especially true for the 2+ billion deskless employees worldwide (70M in the US) who are without access to corporate email accounts and employee-directed news. Employees, especially Millennials, are seeking a connection through their most ubiquitous device -- their phones.

"The war for talent is over, and the talent won," said Staffbase Co-Founder Frank Wolf.
"If you don't value the employee experience -- from their first encounter with a company until they exit -- recruits and employees will leave. It starts by giving them a 'Staffbase' or virtual company home that they can connect to on their terms and feel 100% aligned with the company's purpose."

Staffbase's German-engineered, modular SaaS platform is 100% customizable with the most comprehensive feature set, to grow as you go and includes:

- Pre-boarding - Communication and messaging
- Orientation and initial training - Rewards and recognition
- Services (e.g. paystubs, vacation) - Benefits
- Learning and development - Alumni outreach
- Engagement and surveys - Listening and feedback

Implementing Staffbase is fast and easy for HR and Internal Comms leaders. Its open API lets users rapidly integrate with corporate databases and 3rd party systems, like Microsoft SharePoint, with the highest levels of targeting and security with virtually no training or onboarding time. Organizations can instantly demo the custom branded app and discover what dozens of Staffbase users already experience:

  • 50-90% of employees download and use their company app
  • 75% of users read content within an hour after receiving a push notification
  • Highly targeted, authentic messages to employees by work group, region, employment stage or title
  • 3x higher employee reach compared to their existing intranets

"Staffbase has transformed the way we communicate with our employees," says Don Wooldridge, Vice President of Culture Development and Education at TradeWinds Grand Islands Resort. "We use Staffbase to get crucial information out in a timely way but also to listen to employee feedback and share essential work related forms and benefits information."

Venture-funded and founded in 2014 in Germany, Staffbase is the world's first Employee Experience Platform that helps HR and Communication leaders to transform their organizations into places where people feel connected and proud to come to work.

    My wife and I have a $1 million mortgage and $200,000 in cash — do we reduce our repayments or invest it?

    Dear Moneyist, My wife and I are in our mid 30s and have been blessed enough to be relatively debt-free and purchase our first home together. Should we use that $200,000 to recast our mortgage — reduce the outstanding sum without altering the original terms — or invest the money? Our interest rate is low at 3.5%. We were able to make a 20% down payment, but our remaining balance is still over $1 million. I decided to sell the town house I purchased years ago, and was able to come up with an additional $400,000. We decided to pay off all of our remaining debt — $25,000 for a car and $15,000 for a student loan — make some home improvements to our bathroom and install solar electricity. We also

    My husband took 5 years off his age and denies he fathered a child — now I want separate bank accounts

    Dear Moneyist, My husband is 16 years older than me and, two years after our marriage, I discovered that he was five years older than his official age. At the same time, we found out I was pregnant with our first child. He explained that there was some controversy about his date of birth as he was born at home in the Philippines. There was a fire and he lost his parents at a very young age. I found it hard to believe at that time, but we have a good relationship and — other than that — things were okay. Moreover, we were expecting our first child, so I let it go. I have very little financial education and have always trusted him to handle our finances while I worked hard. We have three kids together,

    This Flu Map Shows How the Biggest Influenza Outbreak in Years Spread Across the U.S.

    With months left to go in the 2018 flu season, the U.S. has already hit an unfortunate benchmark, as shown on the flu map below: For the first time in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 13 years of influenza monitoring, every state in the continental U.S. is seeing “widespread” virus activity. The U.S. is experiencing such an active flu season that the CDC held a special briefing on the topic last week, explaining that there’s an uptick in both confirmed cases of the disease and hospitalizations related to it this year. Spread of the disease was bolstered by the circulation of H3N2, an influenza strain that’s particularly aggressive and was only successfully targeted by vaccines in about 30% of cases, according to the CDC.

    Apple didn’t say it was hiring 20,000 new workers, nor bringing back all of its overseas cash

    Apple Inc. announced a series of plans Wednesday that were celebrated as promises to hire thousands of workers and bring home all of its overseas cash. Well, not necessarily. Apple AAPL, -0.45%  said in its release that the company planned to “create over 20,000 new jobs through hiring at existing campuses and opening a new one.” The key word there is “create,” which Apple really likes to use when discussing jobs: The company even has a portion of its website dedicated to “job creation” that claims it is “responsible for 2 million jobs” in the United States, most of which are jobs “attributable to the App Store ecosystem.” Apple currently employs 84,000 people in the U.S., it said Wednesday,

    Small-town budgets hurting from loss of mini Walmarts

    Luther sold its youth football field to Walmart about three years ago so that the company could build one of its Express stores, using the money from the sale and the new tax revenue to pay off the roughly $200,000 in debt that resulted from an embezzlement scandal involving the former town treasurer. The store opened in May 2015 and closed only eight months later when Walmart pulled the plug on its Express experiment, shuttering all 102 of the smaller stores it had opened in mostly Southern and Midwestern towns to compete with dollar stores. Although many locations were taken over by Dollar General, the tax collections just don't measure up even though the Dollar General stores offer many of the same products, but not a pharmacy.

    "When you think of how to help our workforce thrive and find opportunities in the digital world, the first word that often comes to mind is 'code.' Nearly every digital-skills program over the past decade has focused on computer science, with a lot of emphasis on young students," says Pichai."But the focus on code has left a potentially bigger opportunity largely unexplored."Softer-skilled, mid-level jobs are being rapidly digitized and automated and training needs to stay nimble and be a constant through your career, Pichai says."In the past, people were educated, and learned job skills, and that was enough for a lifetime. Now, with technology changing rapidly and new job areas emerging and transforming constantly, that's no longer the case," says Pichai."We need to focus on making lightweight, continuous education widely available.

Management is guiding toward 9% net sales growth in its key agriculture and turf segment in its fiscal 2018, a figure merely matching that achieved in 2017. The reality is that last year's sales growth was bolstered by a 20% bounce in South America agriculture machinery sales, while U.S. and Canada agriculture machinery actually declined -- a concern because it's Deere's core market.

The financial results we are reporting today for both the fourth quarter and full year 2017 demonstrate once again the strong cash flow generated by KMI.
