About

The StaffCircle story

Our mission is to unify communications, culture, performance & HR in the workplace.

CEO, Mark Seemann, previously founded three earlier businesses. Their fast growth and distributed workforce illustrated how hard it was to manage consistent internal communications, ensure adequate performance management and processes, drive employee development plans, and the difficulty in maintaining a consistent culture.

There was no single software solution available to help managers solve this, so in 2017 StaffCircle was created.

67% of businesses struggle to unify performance management, progression and culture.

The problem

We built StaffCircle after seeing businesses suffer from a lack of consistent comms, culture and performance processes as they scaled up, causing a lack of clarity, uneven culture and below par performance. We realised that there was no single solution available that could solve all of these problems. There are many single-point solutions available on the market, but StaffCircle encompasses all of these pain points into one slick, easy to use solution.

The solution

The brainchild of software entrepreneur Mark Seemann, StaffCircle creates a place where communications and productivity can flow across any device (SMS, mobile app, desktop app and email) in any location, helping to better empower, engage and enhance your most valuable asset – your people.

ROI

Increasing productivity, engagement and retention of employees pays big dividends, especially in industries where a digital divide exists between desk and non-desk based workers. It costs an organisation over £30,000 every time an employee leaves and it takes approximately 6 months for a replacement to get fully up to speed. StaffCircle helps reduce staff attrition, speeds up new-starter on-boarding and improves overall ongoing communication in the workplace. To apply these calculations to your business, check out our ROI calculator and input your specific values. 

The platform

Built alongside Microsoft Azure Architects and a member of the Microsoft Startups Program. The company created the StaffCircle platform on Azure integrated with Microsoft technologies. StaffCircle is a customisable and extendable mobile and desktop platform for the modern workplace. We will always do our best to tailor our solution to our customers needs, with 50% of ongoing platform developments driven by customer feedback, the other 50% based on our ongoing innovation.
