Sapling in the press

Sapling CEO, Bart Macdonald, was featured on Forbes where he discussed the "People Ops Revolution."

HR practices used to be primarily employer-centric, from my perspective, and they focused largely on compliance and administration. But throughout my time working in the human resources space, I’ve had a front-row seat experiencing a shift toward a more strategic people operations function. We are now entering "HR 2.0."


"I believe it’s more important than ever to focus on employee engagement and retention for two reasons: First, based on my experience, fully ramped and engaged employees tend to be more productive than newer hires, which helps you reach your business goals faster." said Bart Macdonald, CEO of Sapling.



Sapling, a three-year-old, San Francisco-based company whose employee management and onboarding software are being adopted by a growing number of mid-size companies with dispersed workforces, is announcing today that it has raised $4 million in funding from Gradient Ventures, which is Google’s AI fund, and Tuesday Capital, formerly known as CrunchFund.


Sapling is building a platform focused on empowering People Operations teams with connectivity, data, and insights on their global workforce. The SF-based startup has raised $4 million in seed financing led by Google's AI-focused venture fund, Gradient Ventures, with participation from Tuesday Capital.


"The cost of employee turnover is high, and it is more challenging than ever to find and hire great talent for your organization. Keep the talent you have by setting them up for success from the moment they sign your offer letter and continuing to support them throughout their employee life cycle." said Bart Macdonald, CEO of Sapling .


Sapling, an onboarding and HRIS platform for mid-sized companies, has helped forward-thinking organizations like Invision to create remote onboarding playbooks that drive fully engaged and productive employees who are happy to stay and contribute for many years.
