Blaast is an organizational performance management company that creates “humanness worker tech” to help bring performance management practices in line with the future of work trends occurring around the globe.

The Blaast Platform is designed to connect worker to worker, worker to manager, worker to CEO and even worker to the performance of the overall company.

“It was a wonderful experience to be a part of Web Summit this year.” James Agnew, CEO and Founder says, “Lisbon is a beautiful place with very accommodating people. We literally spoke directly with people from over 19 countries and the feedback and enthusiasm for what we are building is energizing to us. It was a great confirmation we have identified a worldwide problem and are heading in the right direction with our solution.”

The Problem
Blaast believes performance management of the global worker is broken. Low engaged employees are costing US companies over $450 billion a year in lost productivity. With the rising popularity of the remote worker and the Gig worker, it has become increasing hard to connect employees with each other, to give them a clear direction of what to work on and why it matters and to facilitate impactful weekly coaching sessions to ensure the employee both wins at work and in their personal development.

How It Works
The Blaast platform creates transparency and alignment across departments while helping employee’s connect emotionally to the company they work for. The platform follows a proven, highly engaging social process that culminates in producing internal quarterly playbooks (think of an internal Fast Company magazine publication) that educates and celebrates a company’s mission and culture. It declares forward the company’s strategic objectives on an annual and quarterly basis from each and every employee.

The platform has tools for managers so that they approve resource needs, eliminate roadblocks and manage cross functional dependencies to ensure each employee both wins at work and in their personal development.

Future Features
While the current platform offers a powerful feature-set today, the future product roadmap includes virtual learning tools to help turn managers to coaches as well as personal development modules to support the individual goals of each employee. Blaast will also offer analytical tools sets for the HR and leadership teams to give insights on attracting, building and retaining highly engaged/highly productive employees.
