GuideSpark Ranked Number 66 Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte's 2015 Technology Fast 500

Leader in Workforce Communications Achieves 1,244 Percent Revenue Growth as Company Brings Innovative Employee Engagement Platform to New Markets

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2015) - GuideSpark, the leader in workforce communications, today announced that it ranked 28 among all software providers, and 66 overall, on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. GuideSpark grew 1,244 percent during the past three years.

GuideSpark's chief executive officer and co-founder, Keith Kitani, credits the company's 1,244 percent revenue increase to growing interest in its innovative platform that delivers personalized video and mobile experiences to connect workers to their employers and provide the knowledge they need to be fully productive. As a result, employers can communicate complex information related to compensation, benefits, financial wellness and more, leading to improved engagement and retention.

As GuideSpark continues to transform workforce communications, the company has become the provider of choice for a rapidly growing number of enterprise clients looking to project a consistent culture, brand and voice across their organizations. In just three years, the company increased its penetration into the Fortune 500 from less than one percent to 20 percent. Overall, GuideSpark's workforce communications platform is used by more 600 enterprise companies with over 10 million employees.

"The ability to provide a positive, transparent employee experience, communicate important company information and drive participation in health and wellness programs is essential to creating an engaged, productive workforce," said Kitani. "This, combined with the explosive growth of mobile use and video consumption, has created an enormous opportunity for GuideSpark to help employers significantly improve how they connect with their employees. We are honored that Deloitte has recognized our tremendous success over the past three years and thrilled to be included among the other top companies on the prestigious Technology Fast 500 list."

"Amid a fierce business climate, there seems to be no shortage of new and established companies that are unlocking a seemingly unlimited potential for growth and advancement through technology's continued disruption and proliferation across industries," said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. "It is inspiring to witness the innovative ways that companies are incorporating emerging technologies for business gains, be it cognitive computing, or the Internet of Things. We congratulate all those ranked on this year's Fast 500 and look forward to seeing their continued growth into 2016."

"Through the efforts and utilization of new and emerging technologies from these companies, we are witnessing greater business demands from across almost all industries," added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "We look forward to the opportunity to serve these companies as they strive to grow to the next level -- be it towards introducing new solutions or entering new markets -- and with it make important and long lasting impressions on the technology market as a whole."
