The future of work
Authentic employee engagement has never been more important, with workforce wellbeing reaching a new tipping point. The number of employees leaving their jobs has spurred a revolution that is now being dubbed, “The Great Resignation of 2021.” To understand why, we commissioned a study of over 23,000 workers across the UK, US, and EU.
The independent survey, The Deluge of Unhappy Workers, uncovered the mounting dissatisfaction among workforces with employees feeling undervalued, uninformed, and unconnected. This represents a global problem for business, and Firstup is already addressing this challenge for customers today, giving them the agility to address the dynamic nature workforces need now and into the future.

Putting people first to lift companies up
With 63% globally and 70% of US workers now indicating they prefer working from home, the need for organizations to connect and engage with their employees wherever they are is more urgent than ever.
Employees are feeling undervalued:
- 41% are unaware of their company’s goals or strategies
- 38% don’t feel their role is important to the business
- Only half feel valued in their role
A high level of engagement also has wide-reaching business benefits, with one-third of employees agreeing that more communication from their employers would increase their productivity.
A recent Forbes report, The Experience Equation, further confirms that 89% of surveyed executives at companies that consider themselves revenue-growth leaders agree that better employee experience leads directly to better customer experience.
The Firstup platform gives leaders and communicators full control to intelligently automate messages and capture analytics to align employees, power the modern intranet, and increase workforce productivity from the front office to the front line.
Our customers see the bottom-line impact of an authentic employee connection to leadership and culture.
