In an environment affected by a shortage of skills, searching and retaining talents remains the most formidable challenge for the HR team. As a matter of fact, employee engagement is one of the largest challenges facing the business world.
In such circumstances, management needs to understand the condition of their working culture and how employees perceive the organisation. Does your team care about their work? Do they enjoy it? Asking the valid question with the right tool can combat this unending problem. Thankfully, many apps can help you improve employee engagement in the workplace.
Raised €4.3 million!
One such platform is the ‘Office App‘, the world’s most advanced tenant & employee experience platform. In a recent development, Office App has roped in €4.3 million in Series A funding round led by German VC Join Capital and Austria-based SIGNA Innovations, the Venture Capital Unit, along with UK-based specialist Proptech VC Pi Labs.
The company is planning to utilise this fund to expand its data and analytics offering and to expand its teams in Amsterdam, London and North America.
Thijs van der Burgt, CEO and founder of Office App, commented:
We’re at an incredibly exciting juncture in our business. Having on-boarded some exceptional clients over the past 12 months, the team is ready to accelerate the growth of our business, scaling our European operations and entering the North American market for the first time. An office should be so much more than a mere desk. It should be a place that inspires you and provides a Happy Office.
