“Waggl is dedicated to making work more human for our employees and our clients, and we pride ourselves on building our organization from the inside out with an emphasis on our culture and employee experiences,” said Michael Papay, Co-founder and CEO, Waggl. “We believe if we do those things well, it translates into a great product, trustworthy brand, superior customer focus, and ultimately strong performance and shareholder return. We are honored to be recognized by the San Francisco Business Times, alongside some of the most successful and well-respected companies in the Bay Area, and we view this accolade as another significant validation of the value of elevating Employee Voice in the workplace.”
Every year the Business Times puts together a list of the fastest growing private companies in the Bay Area, including privately held companies headquartered in the Bay Area, which is defined as Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties, and the city of Palo Alto. The 2019 list ranks the Bay Area's fastest-growing private companies by percent growth in net revenue from 2016 to 2018. The companies on the list span a diverse mix of industries — many from the tech world, but also construction and design, real estate, financial services, biotech, advertising, consulting, consumer products and retail.
Waggl was recently ranked 151 on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the United States, with three-year revenue growth of 2482 percent, placing 26 within California-based companies, 19 within software companies, and 10 within San Francisco companies. The company was named as “Employee Engagement Vendor of the Year” by the 2019 North American Employee Engagement Awards, recognized as a Top Workplace of 2019by the Bay Area Newsgroup, and by San Francisco Business Times/Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Best Places to Work, earning the #2 ranking for wellness and the #10 spot for smallest companies.
Waggl catalyzes real-time actionable dialogue by crowdsourcing and prioritizing Employee Voice around critical business topics like culture transformation, strategy alignment and employee experience. Waggl delivers actionable insights to leaders, managers and teams by ensuring that individual voices are heard, and by building engagement and cultural alignment through meaningful inclusion and participation in a transparent dialogue.
In order to keep pace with the constant change and other challenges that come with rapid growth, Waggl maintains a strong focus on building an agile culture and great employee experience by providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully and can contribute fully to the organization’s success. Waggl believes that creating an open, transparent forum where people can participate in important discussions about their own workplace leads to greater engagement and productivity, a shared sense of purpose, and a clearer path of action.
“We can’t imagine a better place to grow our business than the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Alex Kinnebrew, CMO and Head of Strategy, Waggl. “Waggl’s employee experience resources and initiatives are focused on making life better by embracing health and wellness as a core value throughout the company, regardless of whether they are at our headquarters in Sausalito or working remotely. For example, we regularly take one-on-one meetings walking on a path around a beautiful marina, rather than sitting in the conference room all day. We have a partnership with a unique local wellness center next to our office that offers fitness, yoga, meditation, kayak rentals, and other classes. Where else could we do that?”
