Built specifically for the frontline workforce, WorkHound gives workers a voice with its platform for real-time, anonymous feedback.

WorkHound was founded in 2015 by Max Farrell and Andrew Kirpalani, who set out to give the trucking industry — where the average driver turnover rate is 95 percent — a better way of communicating.

Today, WorkHound is used by thousands of frontline workers and their employers as a way of building trust and solving problems. WorkHound delivers insightful analytics from anonymous feedback collected directly from the workforce, helping companies of all sizes reduce worker turnover, retain drivers and boost profitability.

Our Core Values

We’re in the business of employee retention, so it’s important that we practice what we preach. Just like our customers, we want to create a workplace where workers truly want to work. Here’s how we do it.

Be Team Players

Be Empathic

Empathy is the foundation for all our conversations, tasks, and interactions. We recognize that we are all human, and we genuinely care about the well-being of others. With empathy grounding everything we do, we put people first. Through empathy, we gain a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives, work together in the interest of problem-solving and progress, and are empowered to provide exceptional service to our valued customers.

Be Growth-minded

Be Growth-minded

There are only two outcomes: Win or learn. True growth isn’t repeated success, but rather, learning from failure. This mentality of adaptation drives us to continually be better while honestly assessing how to get there. Sometimes startup work is profound and disruptive and sometimes it’s scrappy and unrefined. Riding the peaks and valleys is part of the growth cycle.

Be Team Players

No silos. No solos. Our team is comprised of top talent, but none of us can run our company alone. We win as a team. We learn as a team. We trust in the team.

Be Focused

We are committed to our work and take pride in accountability. We proudly “own it.” Full effort always, never half-assed. We keep our goals in plain sight and prioritize the work that helps us achieve them.
