Despite an increasing reliance on technology, the workforce has never been more human-centric than ever before. Organizations must nurture and maximize employee potential to put teams in a position to grow and for companies to succeed. Employee coaching has become a modern centerpiece of continuous performance management. Employees that go through training and coaching have shown an 88% increase in productivity when working with top coaches. But for far too long, coaching has been available only to senior-level personnel. GOCoach is B2B Saas platform that makes coaching and blended learning available to organizations with no minimum enrollment numbers. Employees, at all levels, are able to select their coaches through the platform’s marketplace while both managers and employees can track an individual’s progression to make data-driven decisions. With displacement as a result of the Great Resignation, GoCoach’s focus on upskilling ensures that companies are doing what they need to retain, attract, and build an engaged workforce in an era where competition for employees has intensified. AlleyWatch caught up with GoCoach CEO and Cofounder Kristy McCann Flynn to learn more about how her experience as an HR professionals led her to build an all-in-one solution for investment in a company’s most important resource – its people, strategic expansion and growth plans, and latest round of funding from investors that include Panoramic, Early Light Ventures, Zane Capital, Gaingels, Ben Franklin Technology Partners, WGU Labs, Rev Up Capital, and Global Super Angels.
