For the third time RiseSmart has been named one of the country’s human resources and human capital management companies to watch by LAROCQUE, a strategy and go-to-market consulting firm for the HR industry.
RiseSmart was one of 15 companies on LAROCQUE’s #hrwins list, which recognizes innovative HR Technology products. RiseSmart was recognized for our latest offering, Compass.
The 2014 program spanned more than 12 months, and each of the more than 150 vendors was evaluated on its solution’s innovation, the value the technology delivers to the Human Resources profession, and the overall viability of the product.
"We continue to see large numbers of new vendors entering the space with new ideas, while many existing vendors have extended their products in innovative ways," said George LaRocque, president of LAROCQUE. "All of the vendors we’ve seen are providing value to the marketplace at some level. I would love to recognize every single one. Every vendor participating deserves a huge thank you. The winners truly stood out from the pack."
LAROCQUE said the continued focus on disrupting the HR marketplace — this time in the area of employee engagement - is what made RiseSmart Compass stand out. The new program, released in beta last fall, is focused on employees and what matters most to them in their careers.
LAROCQUE’s experts said of Compass: "Whether it’s becoming an expert, finding or becoming a mentor, climbing the corporate ladder, or learning the next skill, Compass guides the employee down the path they choose, while capturing insightful metrics that give the employer a measurement on engagement and flags organizational risks."
