Almost every team at the company uses Airtable. What started as a means of tracking onboarding deadlines with clients has since grown to serve many use cases.
It’s intuitive that a work environment where employees feel connection and loyalty towards their colleagues is less likely to see turnover. Yet, three years ago, Isa Watson saw few tools in the marketplace that approached employee engagement as a vital business objective.
Watson founded Envested in 2015 to serve as a workforce engagement tool to build real-world connections and shared experiences between employees. Whether it’s biking with your colleagues or sprucing up the local park, individual employees (or the company) are able to create and promote internal events, which can be categorized by different interest areas.
Envested works with mid-sized but fast-growing companies such as Jet, Carbon, and Greenhouse. Elizabeth Smith, an Operations and Customer Success Manager, noticed a growing redundancy in the tools they were using and suspected that the team weren’t benefitting from the level of complexity of some of them.
“Airtable keeps things fairly simple and easy to discover, so you’re able to simplify otherwise complex processes, but still have the functionality that you need,” says Smith.
“I think that we’ve all become a little bit more self-sufficient in Airtable. We’re able to work transparently and communicate what’s needed.”
