EmployeeChannel Announces App for Real-time Employee Communications

Delivers the knowledge and performance of a company’s HR professionals and their partners at employees’ fingertips

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – April 5, 2016 – EmployeeChannel, Inc., today announced a cloud-based app for real-time employee communications. EmployeeChannel's mobile and web-based app is designed to deliver the knowledge and performance of a company’s HR professionals and their partners at employees’ fingertips. The EmployeeChannel app also includes “voice of the employee” analytics that capture communication trends and actionable data to enable HR professionals to make data-driven decisions about the impact and effectiveness of their communications.

“HR professionals are targeting new ways to improve the employee experience,” said Robin Erickson, vice president of talent acquisition, engagement and retention research, Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Employee communication is just one of many areas where an employee-focused solution would go a long way toward helping improve the employee experience. Employee communications software is a new addition to the HR technology landscape, and one that companies are just beginning to tackle. These solutions often combine personalization, analytics and mobile technologies.”

“The gap between traditional communication channels and employee needs is profound. Companies are too often forced to deliver generic communications through traditional channels while employees want real-time, personalized, and contextual responses to their requests for information,” said Steve L. Adams, CEO of EmployeeChannel. “We believe an employee-focused solution that provides an integrated view of employee- and company-specific information from a single point of access will help our customers in their mission to build deeper relationships and foster a culture of open communication — ultimately, improving the employee experience.”
