Lattice, the leading people management platform for businesses with people-first cultures, today reported record growth in its 2021 fiscal year summary report. This continued company momentum speaks to the significant market opportunity and demand for software that enables companies to build engaged, high-performing teams while providing people leaders with strategic, data-driven insights.
In today’s rapidly changing world of work, identifying the tools and processes that will enable organizations to build, manage, and grow high-performing teams needs to be an intentional part of any company’s overall people strategy. And that people strategy must evolve and scale with the needs of the business as well as engage and develop employees.
“Over the past year, we have invested heavily in building a people management platform that is not only critical for companies focused on attracting and retaining top talent, but also gives every people leader visibility into their teams to maximize employee insight, support, and growth,” said Jack Altman, Lattice CEO and co-founder. “As a result, Lattice has emerged as the essential tool for people-first organizations.”
As part of its record growth, Lattice has achieved a number of major milestones during its fiscal year, including:
