The ClearCompany Labs mandate is to pursue next-generation Talent Management solutions. ClearCompany Labs teams operate with technical staff and resources and a budget strictly dedicated to the goal of pursuing HR innovation excellence.
Read on to learn more about how the ClearCompany Labs teams work and what ClearCompany Labs expects to bring to customers and HR partners.
Why We Created ClearCompany Labs
ClearCompany Labs enables us to develop new talent management products faster. Operating separately from standard product development, Labs is a way to accelerate product ideation, jumpstart new product development and fuel creativity and innovation. Labs initiatives will expand the breadth and depth of ClearCompany’s product portfolio.
At a given time, 15% of ClearCompany’s technical professionals are 100% dedicated to a Lab initiative. Our investment in Labs is an investment in our technical people, and a bet on their insights, creativity, and productivity. Labs innovation cycles often generate next-wave features and functionality that we can share with our customers. The Labs approach generates fresh ideas and new ways of thinking and reinforces a rapid and dynamic “test and learn” approach to innovation.
For Our Customers
The establishment of ClearCompany Labs is a big win for our customers. Through Labs, we can now provide customers with more chances to see, test drive, and weigh-in on our next wave of platform solutions early and often. You will have the opportunity to get an inside track on our development process, conceptual designs, and how we’re thinking about the talent challenges that organizations face — and you can explore and evaluate all of this before market release. Once our product does hit the market, you can have confidence that it has been extensively developed, tested, tried, and vetted before it is added to the ClearCompany platform and generally available.
Customers who want a front row seat on Innovation are invited to participate in the ClearCompany Labs development process and should reach out to their ClearCompany CSM to learn more.@ClearCompany announces their new think tank and development studio for #TalentManagement #Innovation: ClearCompany Labs!

Our latest ClearCompany Labs Release: Celebrations
New Celebrations, and its sister launch, Shout Outs, are great examples of the types of innovations you can expect from ClearCompany Labs. Celebrations and Shout Outs are ClearCompany’s first employee engagement and social recognition tools. With these social, lightweight, and easy-to-use tools, you can modernize the way your organization celebrates and shares employees’ personal milestones, successes, and their contributions to the business including:
- Employee Birthdays
- Work Anniversaries
- New Hire Welcomes
- Shouts Outs for a Job Well Done
- Thank Yous and Appreciation
Celebrations help promote a positive workplace culture by placing celebratory messages on the ClearCompany newsfeed and across Slack channels to broadcast employees’ special moments and peer appreciation. Social sharing tools let co-workers chime in to amplify the message. These tools are seamlessly activated through your existing ClearCompany platform. Activate just one, or use them all to generate goodwill, foster teamwork, make people happy, and strengthen employee engagement. To find out more about Celebrations and Shout Outs or to activate these employee engagement and recognition tools, contact your ClearCompany representative.
