CareerLark is building a chat-first talent management platform that helps companies achieve a better engaged and more productive workforce. CareerLark uses chat bot technologies to facilitate lightweight micro-feedback and team-building activities. It leans into emerging trends around the desire for continuous feedback from the rapidly growing millenial workforce and the shift to enterprise chat systems like Slack and Microsoft Teams. CareerLark has two Slack apps currently in the market: Mirco-feedback (helps employees get continuous 360 feedback) and Icebreakers (helps new employees onboard with fun questions). The company has been featured by Slack since launch and has been covered by Inc, Fast Company and VentureBeat. CareerLark is also a launch partner for Microsoft Teams.
