Happybot is going after a huge problem; 67% of the US is disengaged at work (Gallup). And it costs businesses $20k-$50k to replace someone who quits.

Solution: a personal, automated Chief Happiness Officer who makes employees happier at work, and less likely to quit. Less like a "bot" that does a particular task; more like a great HR person who learns about you and gets better over time. It communicates through Slack, email, and SMS.

To help businesses lower turnover, happybot has focused on doing 3 things well:

1. Reaching out to employees in a very human way to find out what's bothering them, then anonymously communicating that rich data back to managers
2. Helping managers become "super-managers" by being a person coach, using nudges, habit science, and mini-challenges (i.e. "your challenge today is to take Rachel out for a spontaneous 1-on-1")
3. Automatically organizing social experiences for teams & individuals

These all tie to the top reasons 3 employees quit
a) They don't feel heard/valued
b) They don't like their boss.
c) They don't feel a strong connection to their coworkers

Through thousands of interactions we've had to date, we've seen that each of these 3 things can be done well by a non-human, and hugely improved with machine learning.

My team at Amex beta tested Happybot. I believe they have incredible potential, and the team is fantastic. Definitely a company I could get behind and use in the future.

Aaron has always worked on building happier and more comfortable workplace cuture, whether it was during his time at Flycleaners, his first startup as Laundry Puppy, and even during his time working within the chasms of the startup ecosystem in NYC. I have never seen an AI chatbot that's been focused in this space, and it's quite refreshing, not to mention beyond exciting! Happybot needs the right tools to get to the next level, and Aaron leading it couldn't make me happier.
