Humanforce, a Sydney-based global provider of workforce management solutions, today announced the closing of a significant growth investment from Accel-KKR, a leading technology-focused private equity firm. This new round of funding will enable Humanforce to rapidly expand its suite of solutions, pursue acquisitions and enhance its market leadership position with frontline and deskless workforces. Since Accel-KKR’s initial investment in Humanforce in 2019, the company has enjoyed accelerated year-on-year SaaS bookings growth of 53%.
Humanforce is a leading provider of cloud-based workforce management solutions for shift- and roster-driven workforces that streamlines onboarding, scheduling and time tracking for employees, while helping businesses improve productivity, optimise costs and realise compliance confidence. Humanforce allows managers to effectively engage and empower their workforce throughout the employee lifecycle, while enabling employees to stay connected, informed, and accountable in the flow of work. Since its founding more than 1 million deskless workers across a host of industries including healthcare, retail, sports, leisure, hospitality, local government and more have used Humanforce to set their availability to work, bid on and swap shifts, apply for leave and communicate with their peers and managers. With 80% of the global workforce being deskless, Humanforce adopts a mobile-first, cloud-first approach to workforce management, with a focus on connecting the experience of deskless workers to the efficiency and optimisation of the business.
“Since our initial investment in Humanforce in 2019, the global workforce has fundamentally shifted. Industries that are driven by a deskless workforce have arguably been the most affected, accelerating the need for intelligent, employee-centred technology to help those businesses manage the changing landscape,” said Joe Porten, Managing Director of Accel-KKR.
