Introducing Amirra - The World's New Employee Retention Solution

The story of Amirra and why Fortune 500's have adopted Amirra to help them improve their hybrid work experience

What tools are helping you retain talent? This is the question Amirra's Co-Founder, Ben Comstock, asked to over one hundred executives before building, testing, and launching Amirra - a new Talent Management Solution aimed at helping organizations retain hybrid workers.

"Organizations invest a significant amount of time, money, and resources recruiting, hiring, and training employees, but they don't have a solution dedicated to retaining them.  With employee turnover costing businesses an an average of $11,000 per employee, retaining talent is key to profitability.  Seeing there were no good tools built for retaining talent, we designed Amirra - an integrated and automated solution that brings human connection, which is key to job satisfaction and retention, to the onboarding, community, and engagement journey.

81% of workers prefer hybrid work, making digital solutions for engaging and retaining employees a must-have to attract and retain talent.  Amirra was created to help organizations meet this growing need. 

Amirra started as a software product that Comstock and his cousin Michael Noland created for a selected group of clients to improve their organizational community. Beta testing the tool in multiple companies led to the realization that there is value in bringing human connection to the onboarding experience and extending it beyond the first few months of employment. "We want to bring employees together at every step of their employee journey."

Since Amirra's launch in April 2023, organizations such as SAP, Harvard, and Thermo Bond use it to help welcome, connect, and engage their hybrid workforce.

Toby Haug, VP of Humanizing Business at SAP, says, "Amirra is our solution to bringing connection, community, and support to our new hybrid work challenges."

"The pandemic presented a significant hurdle for organizations in maintaining a sense of community among their employees," explains Comstock. "Subsequently, this has resulted in reduced rates of job satisfaction and retention (The Great Resignation proves this point.) To help organizations address this challenge, we developed a solution capable of automating engagement at all stages of the employee journey to foster a more cohesive work environment. We've been piloting the tool, added new feature sets and automations, and have now launched this Digital Employee Retention Assistant we call Amirra."

Unlike HRIS systems, which are very admin-focused (e.g., W-2 info, time & attendance tracking, payroll, etc.), Amirra focuses specifically on how to engage and connect talent from Day 1. It provides an automated pre-onboarding experience, connecting members with like-minded colleagues, and proactively engaging talent in fun and meaningful ways. Moreover, it seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Teams, improving adoption and engagement while increasing employee services without adding to your tech stack.

Humanizing the employee experience is crucial in today's hybrid work environment, and it's what millennials and GenZs expect. If you're interested in improving your organization's onboarding, community, and engagement experience, explore Amirra's website or contact them directly at Amirra can make a positive impact on your organization by improving talent retention, and they would love to show you how.
