HiBob – the company behind ‘Bob’ HR platform (transforming how organizations operate in the modern world of work) – recently announced it had secured $150 million in new funding in a round led by Farallon Capital and included Alpha Wave Global and existing investors.
Considering the constantly evolving world of work, companies have been increasingly requiring strategic adaptability to address the changing needs of their organizations. And business leaders face a dynamic set of challenges like managing global teams, balancing remote and hybrid work modalities, and improving talent retention – requiring them to seek a new HR technology stack that enables organizational flexibility and agility to drive sustainable growth.
HiBob provides customers an alternative to legacy Human Capital Management (HCM) platforms, enabling HR leaders, managers, and employees to collaboratively adjust their processes and keep pace with changes to when, where, and how they work. With over 3,500 customers, HiBob continues to deliver powerful growth even amidst volatile market conditions and exceeding $100 million in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) – less than three years after celebrating its $10 million ARR milestone.
The new funding round brings HiBob’s total capital raised to $574 million. Supporting HiBob’s mission to help companies put people first and make culture a competitive edge in the future of work, this investment will maximize HiBob’s ability to deliver its flexible HCM platform to modern, mid-size, and multinational organizations. Plus, it enables HiBob to accelerate its investment in product innovation and development, expand into new geographies, and increasingly serve customers at enterprise scale as it continues to gain market share globally.
HiBob was named to the 2022 and 2023 Forbes Cloud 100 and TIME Magazine’s List of 100 Best Inventions of 2022. And the company recently received four HR Tech 2023 awards from Lighthouse Research, including Best Global Solution for Core HR, and was recognized earlier this year by Ventana Research as a Value Index Leader.
“Our partnership with Farallon Capital and Alpha Wave Global is a testament to our continued leadership in the HCM software category. Modern HR leaders support teams across the business and across the globe, delivering agile, data-driven people solutions to today’s toughest business challenges. HiBob is enabling these teams with powerful HCM capabilities, helping our customers drive engagement and keep their people at the center of every strategic initiative. In a challenging economic climate, this new funding reflects the strength of our strategy, our business, and our ability to deliver results. We value the trust that Farallon Capital, as well as our existing shareholders, have placed in us.”
– Ronni Zehavi, CEO and Co-Founder at HiBob
“The role of technology in human capital management is constantly rising, and HiBob has consistently proven its product excellence as a mission-critical, full-service solution serving a diverse global customer base. In a dynamic environment, HiBob enables HR leaders to serve an increasingly strategic function and adapt nimbly to evolving HR priorities. HiBob has established itself as the go-to option for organizations looking to streamline HR processes while emphasizing talent retention, employee engagement, and data-driven decision-making. We look forward to working with Ronni and the team as HiBob enters this next stage of growth.”
