WorkTango’s co-founders Rob Catalano and Nadir Ebrahim met 18 years ago in Toronto, Canada. They worked together for 10+ years as founding employees of Achievers and even lived together for three years while leading the company’s US expansion based out of San Francisco.
With over 25 collective years in HR-Technology and Advisory experience, Rob and Nadir gained a unique view into what makes employees engaged and organizations performing. They saw an opportunity to improve on the engagement and performance practices in companies to offer more value to HR, executives, managers, and employees by leveraging technology. As the workforce evolves, so to should our practices to become more real-time and agile.
Rob and Nadir do not agree on good music (hard rock or hip hop?) or sports (hockey or basketball?), but they do agree that the workplace needs to be a better place. That passion has produced two important things:
The Passion to improve (work) lives
When the company was created, Rob and Nadir wanted to align passionate people for a real purpose. They created a company that didn’t have a mission like most companies, because missions end… but rather, they created the company Passion: improve (work) lives.
A company that offers passion and value to our customers
Since it started, the company has grown rapidly, with four offices in Toronto, Ottawa, Denmark, and Rio de Janiero that is filled with people aligned to our purpose. Each day, whether it is our Daily Tango, or the whole company that can provide support to our customers, we’re trying to improve the (work) lives of our customers which has grown to over 90 countries.
In our minds, this story is just getting started. Passion can do amazing things, and we can’t wait to see what it has in store for our employees, our customers, and our community.
