Troy Bagne, CEO of Wanido, has always possessed an entrepreneurial mindset and approach. “My career had led me to the creation of several industry firsts when the last project was complete; I knew that the next logical step in mWanido y path was entrepreneurship,” says Troy.


Wanido is about building a bridge between employees and employers to create successful businesses together. Since Winido’s birth, Troy has watched the employee development and engagement industry grow into a 300-billion-dollar industry. Troy and his team pride themselves on creating the first employee-centric HR platform, focusing on the holistic well-being of employees.


The idea behind Wanido derives from Troy’s frustration with the employee benefits industry. Due to being in this industry for as long as he has, Troy has witnessed employee disengagement, recognizing that employee health is headed downhill, and financial instability and stress are becoming an increasingly real problem for most individuals.


“The industry all talks about the same statistics but has failed to address the root cause of disengagement, poor health, and financial health,” says Troy.


Wanido strives to help these individuals and their businesses by creating an environment where employees can share honest feedback and insight. With real insights, employers can make better decisions about the drivers and markers of employee success and the products and services they offer. Wanido has partnered with ORGHEALTH.IO., a technology helping employers benchmark their overall organizational health and compare it across industry and service. This will help employers choose resources with a proven track record and ultimately drive the industry toward better, data-driven employee resources.
