Like many other organizations, YRCI discovered it could thrive in a remote environment. Despite the lack of interpersonal connectivity and the many unprecedented challenges, they were still able to grow significantly, onboarding 270 new hires since the pandemic began, significantly increasing their headcount of employees worldwide.
The influx of talent is actually what sparked the idea to use a tool like KeeperAI. YRCI’s new hires are more geographically dispersed than before and many have still not met anyone else from the company in person. In addition to the new blood, teams were busier than ever, operating in production environments, which left very little time for people to stop and get to know one another. It became clear to leadership at YRCI that they needed an innovative approach to help new teammates quickly get to know one another and help existing teammates re-discover one another.
Breaking the ice and helping people show their true selves through a fun, interactive platform…that’s what KeeperAI is all about.
“For some, it’s merely a saying but we at YRCI are quite literally in the people business,” said Jaeger. “So a solution like KeeperAI, which focuses on what makes people tick, made a lot of sense to us. We saw the potential to use it for ourselves and possibly with our customers.” Spinale put it aptly: “A tool like KeeperAI helps people form stronger bonds, human bonds beget meaning and meaning translates into better performance.”
