Klick creates annual report-meets-high school yearbook to thank team
for a great year; 130-page hardcover book filled with over 1,000 data
points and hundreds of photos
TORONTO & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Klick
Inc., a six-time-and-counting 2019 Best Workplace award recipient,
known for putting its people at the heart of everything it does, is
rewriting the book on employee engagement.
Known for its people-centric, data-driven approach to business, Klick
today released video footage and photographs of “A Year of Klick,” the
data-rich, hardcover book that brings its workplace culture and employee
experience to life.
Klick created the yearbook to provide its team members (affectionately
known as Klicksters) with a tangible, memorable keepsake of their
accomplishments that’s tailored for them. Taking a page out of two
time-honored publishing traditions, the corporate annual report and high
school yearbook, the 130-page company yearbook “celebrates Klickster
culture, accomplishments, and our evolution as a company,” said Klick
Managing Director Peter Flaschner. “We had been throwing around the
notion of doing a book like this for a while but were blown away by how
it all came together and how much our team loves it.”
Today’s announcement aligns with findings from Deloitte’s 2019
Global Human Capital Trends, which identifies the need to improve
employee experience as a top workplace challenge. Eighty-four percent of
survey respondents rated the employee experience as an important issue,
and 28 percent said it was urgent.
Using Klick’s Genome operating system (commercially available as SenseiOSTM
from Klick’s enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) business Sensei
Labs™), which drives almost every aspect of its business, the yearbook
captures over a thousand data points on everything from its corporate
social responsibility, learning and development, peer recognition, and
on-site fitness and wellness programs, to its facilities, technology
usage, and travel.
“We were thinking about what we could do with all that work data in a
way the celebrates each person uniquely, but in a shared experience. We
thought back to high school and that magical day when everyone received
their yearbook,” added Jay Goldman, Co-Founder and CEO of Sensei Labs.
Using AI to augment and enrich the human experience
most novel is how the yearbook has been customized using technology in a
way that sparks delight. To provide each of its over 700 Klicksters with
personalized photo spreads of them and their closest colleagues, the
company used artificial intelligence to tag photos from team events and
built complex algorithms (using calendar, org-chart information, and
other work data) to surface the right photos in the right Klickster’s
yearbook. Each person’s name was also printed on the spine and front
cover of their yearbook.
Like most yearbooks, there’s also a Class of 2018 section (with symbols
denoting new hires and promotions) along with pages for Klickster
“This book is all about people,” said Goldman. “It’s about the different
teams that we have. It’s about the events that we’ve run, and it speaks
to the level of engagement that we have with our teams and all the
individual Klicksters who make them up. It’s a way of us saying thank
you for all of the very hard work that went into making 2018 a huge
success for Klick.”
SenseiOSTM customers will be able to create customized
yearbooks for their teams in the near future. Companies will be able to
use the platform to select specific data points they want to highlight
and use the yearbook as an amplifier and natural extension of their
