There's a Rypple in the Water: Living Social's Success with Social HR - Page 2
At Living Social, Rypple does a lot of things to fit in. Designed with the end in mind, Trzepacz calls the software simple and approachable. The human resource teams say it empowers the user, as well as protects corporate investments. Because Rypple delivers a differentiated experience for each user, it has the ability to, as Trzepacz says, "surprise and delight."
All this was important to Living Social, a company who makes their HR experience a lot like their buying experience. In fact, they deliver their offer letters to new employees like LivingSocial vouchers. For a company that's grown to 4,900 employees, that's a lot of "vouchers."
“I was Ryppling today.”
Rypple had a stellar adoption rate across all the various groups at Living Social. The company regularly sees its employees logging unsolicited updates to their individual goal tracking. The tool is now used for capturing daily feedback, and producing greater communication within departments. Managers and peers send thank you notes to one another through Rypple, and badges are frequently given for concepts and values.
Said one Living Social Rypple user, “Liz helped me out with this thing the other day, so I sent her a badge to show her how awesome a ninja she was.” In another world, Liz might go unrecognized. At Living Social, Liz earns distinguished props for her ability to conquer projects like a tabi-shoed, mixed martial artist.
All of this makes both Rypple and Liz really desirable to work with, and fosters precisely the kind of collaborative and creative environment Living Social seeks.
