On Friday, Zoom announced that it is acquiring Workvivo, an employee engagement and communication platform founded in 2017 and used by many brands including Lululemon, Ryanair, and Liberty Mutual. 

Workvivo is an app that functions as a central hub employees can use for workplace engagement and communication tools such as polls, surveys, shout-outs, email digests, community groups, organization charts, shared calendars, and more. 

Zoom says that a major goal of the acquisition is to provide customers with a new way to engage in today's hybrid work model and to help maintain company culture.
