Our Story

Founded in 2013, Betterworks is on a mission to inspire, develop, and activate the modern workforce. We’ve all struggled with the outdated processes and systems used to track and encourage performance – goals set once a year and forgotten, feedback rarely or never received, progress unremarked and unrewarded – never quite knowing if our work really mattered to the company. So, we knew there had to be a better way to inspire and drive people.

In time, we came to realize it all came down to a question of motivation and alignment. If an employee was excited by the work they were doing, they would be motivated to do their best work – contributing more, collaborating more, more invested in their own growth and development. And the best way to motivate employees? Align them to the larger goals of the organization. Show them that their work has meaning and purpose – that they’re helping the business work towards something important, that their contributions matter – and they’ll work harder than ever.

Tapping into the power of conversation – frequent, open conversation used to provide feedback, to reward contribution, to create alignment – we’ve created solution specifically designed to drive motivation and growth, to unify your team, to help you hit your goals and prepare for whatever’s next. To get you working towards something better – together.

Betterworks is headquartered in Redwood City, CA, with additional offices in New York City and Denver CO.  We’re backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Formation 8.  BetterWorks has helped a variety of global organizations, including Walmart, Intuit, Vertiv and Schneider Electric to motivate their workforces toward collective achievement.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at betterworks (New York, NY) in August 2019.


    Phone interviews and Zoom Video interviews with numerous people within the organization. Last round was an in-person interview with the whole team where I gave a mock QBR. The HR recruiter checked in with me often, before and after each round of interviews.
