Irish tech company Workvivo, which helps other companies to communicate with employees working remotely, has surpassed 300,000 users of its platform worldwide.

The provider of internal communications technology has said it is on target to have one million users of their platform by the end of next year.

In the past year, Workvivo has experienced over 200% growth in user numbers, with customers operating in over 50 countries.

It said 40% of its customer base have joined the platform since March, as people continue to work from home due to the pandemic.

Workvivo recently announced plans to create 100 new jobs.

On the back of this success, founders John Goulding and Joe Lennon have been shortlisted as finalists in the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year competition which will take place next week. 

"Good things happen when you get employee engagement right in an organisation", said John Goulding, CEO of Workvivo.

"Our platform helps organisations get things right when it comes to employee engagement.

"All the things that you would have had to do in a physical working environment in terms of employee morale, positivity, shining a light on the positive things in the organisation, bringing the goals of the organisation alive and bringing the values of the organisation alive - you now have to do that digitally and that's where our platform comes in," he said.

The company currently employs 35 staff, but predicts its workforce will grow to 135 within the next three years, as businesses look to increase focus on employee engagement.

Customers in Ireland include Woodies,Trigon Hotels, Bus Eireann, Irish Rail, Teagasc and UCC. Globally, it supplies companies including Telus International, Seneca Entertainment in New York, Netgear, A+E Networks EMEA, Kentech, Cubic Telecom and Staffordshire University in the UK.
