10KC Platform

Will employees have to use another platform?

No! The entire 10KC experience lives right in your employees’ inbox, so they don’t have to worry about managing another platform or login. Meetings can be conducted with the video conferencing tool they're most familiar with - from Zoom to video calls on their mobile device - or face-to-face once the pandemic is over! It’s this frictionless user experience that’s led us to achieving adoption rates as high as 80% for our internship programs.

Do you integrate with my existing HRIS?

We sure do! You can easily embed 10KC in the tools that your employees rely on, whether that's your LMS, onboarding tools, or performance management platforms like your HRIS. Employees access 10KC through a unique link sent to their inbox. If they no longer have access to their email, they'll no longer have access to our platform - no off-boarding required.

How much administrative effort is require to manage this program?

It's our goal to lighten your admin load, not add to it. Our easy-to-use platform and incredible Customer Success team means you’ll spend roughly 2-3 hours per month to ensure you’re getting the most out of 10KC. With no training sessions required, you can onboard remote employees from your home office with ease and hit your business objectives.
