2022. Humaans raises $15M to simplify HR tasks like onboarding

Humaans, an HR tech startup that lets organizations build a customizable HR stack that manages employee documents, data, payroll, contracts and other components of people ops. Humaans is designed to capture employee details by storing personal and company docs (e.g., identification, emergency contacts and basic profiles), ostensibly making it easier to spot missing data points. The platform monitors things like probation periods and which employees are joining and leaving, as well as birthdays and work anniversaries, expiring IDs and time away and vacation hours. Beyond this, Humaans can show headcount changes by department, tenure and salary spend and trends like when employees have typically taken PTO.

2022. Appcues nabs $32.1M for analytics and no-code tools to fix user onboarding

Appcues — one of the startups building technology both to identify onboarding issues and then provide low-code, non-technical solutions to fix them quickly — has raised $32.1 million Series B round. Appcues has been around since 2014, when it got its start as a SaaS toolset for marketers to create quick prompts on sites without having to involve developers in the process, with a specific emphasis on user onboarding flows. The company’s product today also covers flows to improve feature adoption, to nudge people to take feedback surveys and to get visitors to read announcements, but is still built on the same premise: giving non-technical people the ability to create dialogues to improve how their digital interfaces work.

2021. Sora’s HR automation software raises $14M

HR automation software startup Sora has closed a $14 million Series A round of funding. Sora helps HR operations teams collect and sync data from various systems, create standardized processes for particular tasks, and aids collaboration among the larger people or HR team at a company. To do that, Sora can trigger automated emails from HR, centralize HR ops tasks, and shuttle data to and from disparate software tools used by a larger human resources team. The result is a reduction in busywork and rote tasks for HR operations teams, saving time and reducing the chance that a particular task falls through the cracks; because HR operations teams often oversee onboarding, for example, not making mistakes is pretty key.

2021. Tango raises $5.7M to make employee onboarding easier

Tango has raised $5.7 million seed round for its workflow intelligence platform. Tango is designed to help employees, particularly in customer success and sales enablement, get back as much as 20% of their workweek spent searching for that one piece of information or tracking down the right colleague to assist with a task. Its technology creates tutorials by recording a users’ workflow — actions, links to pages, URLs and screenshots — and turns that into step-by-step documentation with a video. The service provides a Chrome extension that auto-captures workflow best practices so that teams can learn from their top performers.

2021. Personio raises $125M for an HR platform for SME

Personio, the German startup that targets small- and medium-sized businesses with an all-in-one HR platform covering recruiting and onboarding, payroll, absence tracking and other major HR functions — has picked up $125 million in funding at a $1.7 billion post-money valuation. It's building the product — which operates a little like Workday, but built for much smaller organizations. Personio currently counts some 3,000 SMEs in Europe as customers. Personio is not the only startup hopeful that the shift in how we work will bring a new appreciation (and appetite) for purchasing HR tools. Others like Hibob have also seen a big boost in their business and have also been raising money to tap into the opportunity more aggressively.

2020. Welcome raises $6M to help your company hire and keep employees

Welcome, the HR software that helps organizations make and close offers to new candidates, announced the close of a $6 million seed round. Welcome is also launching a new product today called Total Rewards, which helps not just new candidates but also existing employees get a complete, easy-to-understand picture of their compensation, across salary, benefits, equity, etc. Welcome allows companies to organize their compensation offers based on level and position, and deliver that information digitally to candidates in a way that makes sense. The startup integrates with a variety of other software providers, including Slack, Lever, Greenhouse, ADP and Justworks to name a few, simplifying onboarding for Welcome clients and bringing a broad array of information into one place.
