Hunite is the only worker-focused app that lets people connect around all that matters to them in their jobs and beyond.
PALO ALTO, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Last year, Hunite earned the titles Gartner Cool Vendor, and at the HR Tech, Awesome New Technology. One year later, Hunite is doubling down on behalf of workers in an even wider range of industries – bearing a new logo, a new promise and a new worker-focused app. With its new motto Humans at Work, Hunite claims it’s all about being connected at work and effective in life.
Hunite is the only worker-focused app that lets people connect around all that matters to them in their jobs and beyond. People can join, independent of their companies, and it’s for free. The technology then goes to work on their context. The result is an integrated, real-time picture of job aspects relevant to them. From there, people can interact effectively at work and beyond.
“I was frustrated watching companies–often unintentionally–getting in the way of their peoples’ needs, leaving them disconnected,” says Hunite CEO Michel Slager, “so we went directly to employees with our offer.” At the heart of the app lies the belief that people are brilliant self-organizers and practically self-taught digital managers with their own mobile devices. “Why not entrust them to do what is best for the benefit of both them and their companies?” Slager adds.
It’s well known that workers are reluctant to use social and collaboration tools implemented by their companies, as they are often too restrictive, too invasive, revealing too much top-down control. Hunite agrees, and shifts control to the individual, making it attractive and safe to connect freely, independent of his or her company.
Rapid user adoption of Hunite is bringing the value of self-motivated worker engagement back to companies. Hunite encourages companies not to feel threatened, but rather to join their workers. With Hunite, companies will not achieve control over their people, but they can bridge the gap between themselves and their workforce and reap the rewards of their peoples’ motivated efforts.
Now targeting new industries.
In no time, Hunite has grown to become the market-leading app for airline crew. Today, more than 100,000 crew members from over 100 airlines around the world rely on Hunite.
With the new app, Hunite is targeting workers beyond aviation into retail, hospitality, transportation & logistics, manufacturing and healthcare – all facing similar challenges.
Hunite originates from the Netherlands and is headquartered in Palo Alto.
With this launch, Hunite is gearing up for rapid growth.
