ST. PAUL, MN (Oct. 4, 2022) — Augeo, a global leader in enterprise engagement and loyalty platform technology, announced today that it has acquired Structural, an integrated community, mobility and connectivity platform technology for employee engagement. Effective Oct. 1, the acquisition represents the culmination of a multi-year partnership between the two companies that have delivered innovative solutions to advance employee engagement, career advancement and organizational connectivity.
"Structural’s evolution and growth has led to the development of a market-leading community and connectivity platform technology that connects employees to their employer and each other. The technology aligns with Augeo’s enterprise engagement strategy and social architecture toolset," said David Kristal, Augeo Founder & CEO. "We are bringing together our teams and technology to create a robust, unparalleled portfolio of people-first workplace solutions—energizing Augeo's momentum as a global leader in workplace engagement."
Structural's community and connection technology is being deployed via Augeo's suite of platform-based workplace engagement tools—supporting inclusive, authentic, unified and meaningful workplace experiences for diverse groups of employees across the world’s top brands.
Kristal explained, "The past few years of workplace upheaval underscores the need to build stronger, more connected, collaborative organizations. Hybrid workplaces require new forms of connection, where people feel a sense of team and leverage each other for collective success worldwide. Similarly, brands seek to build interactive customer communities where they share affinity for valuable products and services. Organizations want members to build community and feel a greater sense of belonging. The combined experience, expertise and technology platforms of Augeo and Structural bring to market an unmatched, fully integrated platform to energize connections and fortify more productive organizational cultures."

Our shared values provide an exciting framework for success rooted in the same care and passion we have for our clients and customers."
This acquisition also positions Augeo to better capture evolving opportunities as companies embrace technologies that connect employees, channel partners, consumers, subscribers and members in purpose-driven ways.
