Waggl, the most powerful Employee Voice platform for HR leaders, today announced that it has received an HR Tech Award from Lighthouse Research and Advisory, a new kind of analyst firm supporting modern strategies in human capital management.

The HR Tech Awards is a curated awards program that honors technology providers in the HCM industry, including learning, talent acquisition, talent management, core HR, and other related disciplines. Waggl has been named “Best Innovative or Emerging Tech Solution” in the category of Talent Management by an independent panel of distinguished experts in the field.

“In all of our years in the HR and talent technology marketplace, so many solution providers come and go,” said Ben Eubanks, Principal Analyst, Lighthouse Research and Advisory. “The ones with real value and staying power are who buyers need to connect with, but it's hard for them to navigate the waters of technology evaluation with hundreds of providers in the industry. This awards program gives buyers a shortlist of vetted, capable providers specific to their needs, whether they are looking for a new learning experience platform, a talent acquisition CRM, or a core HR analytics tool.”

The WE Solution helps organizations bolster agility, resilience and retention by delivering actionable insight, fresh perspective, and tangible knowledge to leaders and teams, and enabling them to quickly apply them to improving business objectives.
