Employee experience platforms provide a centralized and seamless way for employees to access the information, tools, and resources to do their jobs effectively. Cleary takes it even further, providing a means of communication across teams and helping to build a connected culture where employees feel valued and a part of something, something more important than ever with the prevalence of remote and hybrid employees.
Cleary’s goal is to provide a comprehensive employee experience solution aimed at improving all employee touchpoints, whether that be onboarding or internal culture. To that end, the platform looks to provide value to both employees and organizations in multiple areas, which it does by:
- Enabling seamless operation as a distributed team
- Eliminating the need for multiple tools in the HR technology stack
- Reducing app fatigue while minimizing operational costs
Some of the specific capabilities of Cleary include:
- Company news and updates
- Org charts
- Cross-functional team management
- An internal wiki and search
The platform also enables customizable employee journeys for onboarding, department transfers, and more, helping teams save time and providing a cohesive experience for employees. It is also beneficial to organizations by providing valuable data about employees.
Cleary Satisfies an Expanding Need
According to Thomas Kunjappu, CEO and co-founder of Cleary, there are “over one billion knowledge workers worldwide,” along with a “rapidly-expanding need for cohesive employee experience amongst hybrid workforces.”
In part, the needs are a result of the COVID pandemic, which drove a shift toward remote and hybrid workers and changed employee expectations. Because of that, companies prepared to meet those expectations with essential tools will thrive in the years to come, which is precisely where Cleary comes in.
Cleary’s platform is well-positioned to meet the expanding needs by providing the tools remote workers need to remain connected. It is capable of allowing employees, especially new hires, to connect and feel a sense of belonging, even when they do not see their fellow employees in person every day.
In the words of Rita Ramakrishnan, Chief People Officer of Cadre, “It creates a bit of a home base” for the employees engaging in hybrid work.
Why Does It Matter?
Remote and hybrid work is not going anywhere. For a time, there was a debate about whether workplaces would all shift back to the traditional, but as time has passed, it is clear this type of work arrangement is here to stay. Many employees prefer it, and more than that, it is effective.
Data has shown that remote work leads to increased productivity and improves employee satisfaction. Moreover, for many companies, remote work is cheaper since it does not require office space and saves in many areas.
The only problem is the lack of infrastructure and tools to operate effectively and feel like a part of something. Cleary tackles that problem, ensuring company culture and communication between teams remain strong.
The Funding to Back It Up
Even in a tough economic market, Cleary has managed to pull in $4.5 million in a recent funding round led by Moonshots Capital. The funding will be used to expand the company’s footprint and continue to meet the growing demand for optimized employee journeys in the modern workplace.
