About Intrinsic Works

We build software that helps businesses better manage administrative processes around their employees, and that uses information we all know about them to help keep them engaged in the business every day. We started with a simple project called Birthday Cookie to help businesses remember birthdays and service anniversaries in the workplace and that has since evolved into our InnerDrive Platform. InnerDrive is a cloud- based software suite that helps you engage your employees from day one on the job. Our program helps ease new employees through the administrative on-boarding process and helps you as a business show them that you care about their experience at work.

This software was shaped (and will continue to be) by our own experience and our conversations with businesses of all types. Birthday Cookie opened the door and now we're excited to be offering an ever-expanding solution that provides employers a simple, turn-key solution to improving employee engagement.

Most functionality in the InnerDrive Platform is meant to be free for the employer. How do we do this? We partner with your Group Benefits provider to allow the to bring it to you free of charge. We think the Group Benefits model is broken — our software helps brokers fix it.
