Our mission is to improve the health, happiness, and performance of organizations at every level. We do this by providing visionary leaders with the tools to put their teams first.
We believe lasting change can only be made if we make it together. So, with your help, we are building the leading organizational health and team engagement tool.
54% of employees that leave their jobs leave because they feel undervalued at work. As we know, replacing an employee can cost up to 150% of that person’s salary. Not only are there direct costs to employee turnover, but the constant churn can leave the employees that stay feeling disengaged. Why bother learning your cubicle mate’s name if they’re just going to be gone in a month?
Burnout is killing teams, organizations, and bottom lines.
The good news is that you have the power to change things. To invest in your teams, let them know you are listening and want to make things better for them.
Salary isn’t the only consideration for employees when they are deciding to accept, or remain, at a job anymore. They want to be somewhere their work has meaning, where their contributions are valued, and where their health and happiness are as important to their bosses as the work they get done.
The workplace is evolving. SigBee enables organizations of all sizes to dynamically adjust to create and empower happier, more productive teams. Welcome to the SigBee Revolution.
SigBee was born out of the turmoil caused by global pandemic. We were already prototyping a smart AI system to help businesses connect with and check in with clients. We understood this would be a powerful tool to help improve employee health, happiness, and engagement.
It takes guts to take what you’ve built and go in a completely different direction with it, but that’s exactly what we did. In the Fall of 2020 we deployed our first prototype in Indiana.
Within a few days, the investment round was fully subscribed. Investors included CEOs and senior executives of banks, real estate companies, industrial multinationals, health and human services organizations, and technology companies. They shared a passion for building “People First” companies, and a belief that the SigBee team was ideally equipped for the job.
In order to make SigBee a reality we knew we needed to build an awesome team. In 2021 we crossed the 't's and dotted the 'i's to form SigBee and hire the first of our team, each from diverse backgrounds.
By the end of 2021 we had version 1.5 of SigBee ready to go. Big changes require big moves, so we signed Larimer County as our first customer. Larimer County was a great test bed and we’re pleased as punch that SigBee was a smashing success.
We’ve shown what a select few visionary organizations can do with SigBee. We’re excited to see what the world can do with it. Every organization that joins us makes SigBee better. Our hope is that SigBee becomes as much of a selling point for new hires as the 401(k) or dental. We believe it can do that much good. With your help, we’ll get there.
“When I first became a CEO, my mentor taught me to get to the office early and hang out by the coffee pot to ‘get the pulse’ of my team. Those first few minutes told me if the day was going to be smooth sailing, or an uphill climb. Without the human element numbers don’t mean a thing.” - Alistair Deakin, CEO SigBee
We check in all the time. We check in with each other, for our flights, and to catch a movie. Even plumbers will check in with you before they swing by to make sure you’re home.
Where we don’t check in is at work, the place we spend at least ⅓ of our day. Your boss asks for progress reports, peeks over your shoulder, or asks how your dog is (you have a cat) - That isn’t what we mean by checking in.
Checking in is about how you’re doing as a person, not a cell in a spreadsheet.
Humans check in with each other, because as we’ve known for thousands of years, if one member of the community isn’t doing well, the group isn’t doing well. Beyond self preservation, checking in allows the group to do more, together.
It matters that your commute was a nightmare, just like it matters that you landed that big client and are feeling super proud of that.
Identifying issues before they become problems lets the group come together to help.
Teams work better together when we recognize that they are made up of people. We’re all in this together.
SigBee was born “remote” with team members across the United States; and we are deliberate about communicating thoroughly and engaging deeply with each other, and getting together in person on a regular basis. While the team is driven to succeed on both mission and monetary fronts, the team is also committed to enjoy the camaraderie of good team dynamics.
We’re looking for a US-based Senior Software Engineer to take over leadership of all engineering efforts and technology strategy.
