HX Tech Pitch 2018 names Sparkwork as Editor’s Choice


Sparkwork is honored to be named the Editor’s Choice in the HX Tech Pitch Competition 2018 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City in November 11, 2018.

HX 2018 brings together over 7,200 hotel and restaurant professionals to share education, solutions, creativity, and innovation in hospitality. Over 300 exhibitors have showcased the latest products and services on hotel experience, with over 1,000 attendees from co-located Boutique Design New York (BDNY).

The judges for the HX TechPitch were:

  • Valerie Ferguson, Regional General Manager, Walt Disney Co.
  • Are Morch, Hotel Blogger and Social Media Consultant;
  • Gregory J Pesik, Managing Director, Applied Intelligence, Accenture
  • Vijay Dandapani, President & CEO, HANYC
While hoteliers invest heavily in improving customer experience (CX), the employee experience (EX) is often overlooked. Sparkwork aims to help hotels and restaurants create a seamless onboarding experience to increase the sense of belonging of their newly hired frontline employees. The judges agree that as we are transforming from a manufacturing economy to a service economy, the workforce’s mindset needs a radical shift. In the industry where labor shortage is highest in the history, and where the turnover time is from 4-12 months, Sparkwork is a much-needed solution to bridge the gap between employee experience (EX) and hotel experience (HX).
