Submittable Helps Companies Boost Morale By Maximizing Employee Engagement In Corporate Volunteering
Submittable, the software company helping thousands of organizations worldwide launch, manage and measure social impact programs,enhanced its top-rated platform with a new corporate volunteering solution, making it easy, fun and meaningful for employees to participate in corporate social responsibility.
While 90% of companies have a volunteer program in place, and 77% of workers cite these programs as essential to wellbeing, only 17% of employees participate, according to a report from Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose. Submittable addresses this challenge with a platform that makes it easy for employees to engage, and easy for companies to manage.
Ideon, the API platform powering digital experiences in health insurance and employee benefits, announced that Namely, the leading HR software for mid-sized businesses, has integrated with Ideon’s API. The integration enables Namely to deliver a faster, more efficient benefits administration experience to its clients, across a broad spectrum of insurers.
In order to provide employees with modern features and a smooth enrollment journey, two-way data exchange with insurance carriers is a necessity for HR and benefits platforms. Building individual point-to-point integrations with hundreds of carriers is cost-prohibitive, resource-intensive, and, ultimately, unsustainable. With Ideon, Namely gains a seamless and scalable means to connect and exchange data with multiple insurers.
Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services, announced today it has acquired Storage Made Easy (SME), a leading file data management company that offers remote work and compliance solutions for cloud file storage. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed. The acquisition of SME is Nasuni’s second transaction within the last two months following a $60 million investment earlier in the year.
One of today’s biggest challenges for data storage is the ability to make files accessible to users no matter where they are. As organizations continue to support a distributed workforce, access to file data is required, including from home and branch offices as well as field locations that may have limited internet bandwidth. Traditional Network Attached Storage (NAS) does a poor job accommodating file access from anywhere and stores file data in silos making search and analytics impossible.

The list, which includes 10 agencies across multiple verticals, was compiled based on a series of criteria meant to showcase agencies that give their workers autonomy, embrace a flexible work style and invest in their freelancers and their happiness.
