GuideSpark Expands North American Presence, Opens New San Francisco Office

Rapidly Growing Employee Communications Company Responds to Increased Market Demand for Innovative, Customized Engagement Solutions

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - GuideSpark, the leader in employee communications and engagement, today announced the expansion of its operations in San Francisco with a new facility in the heart of the city's vibrant Financial District. Recently named to Forbes' "Most Promising Companies" list, the dynamic company continues to expand its presence in the region with the opening of its newest office.

"With our recent expansion into the San Francisco region, we can better serve the growing demand for our robust employee communications platform, which replaces traditional communication methods with engaging, customized video and mobile experiences," says Keith Kitani, CEO of GuideSpark. "We continue to focus our efforts on bringing our employee engagement solutions to new and emerging markets. Expanding into the Financial District, which is home to the city's largest concentration of corporate headquarters, will help us further that goal." 

With employee engagement at all-time lows, more companies are searching for creative methods to communicate with employees, and GuideSpark offers an innovative platform to educate employees on complex HR topics around compensation and benefits, performance management, workplace behaviors and onboarding. Accessible from any device, the platform enables an interactive user experience that significantly increases employee engagement, satisfaction and retention.

Blackhawk, Safeway subsidiary and a leading prepaid payment network headquartered in Pleasanton, Calif., is just one of the companies that has benefited from GuideSpark's platform. Lisa Teixeira, Director of HR for Blackhawk, says, "We have a goal to get new hires productive on day one, and we were spending over half of our time explaining benefits to employees. GuideSpark turned our boring new hire orientation into short video -- and it's fantastic! It frees us up to do other things, and new employees get richer information, sooner."

The new GuideSpark office is located at 321 Pacific Avenue, San Francisco, California 94123.
