Structural Finds Momentum in Twin Cities, Announces New Partnerships with Sunrise Banks, Tunheim, Other Local Leaders


Admired Twin Cities Brands Strengthen Teams with Structural

St. Paul, MN. -- (December 13, 2017) -- HR technology startup, Structural, today announced accelerated customer acquisition following its May 2017 launch. Twin Cities organizations including Sunrise Banks, digital advertising agency group Clear Night, communications consulting firm Tunheim, and audiovisual solutions provider AVI have partnered to use Structural’s Employee Success Platform.

Structural’s mobile platform creates a multidimensional view of people and teams, and enables leaders and employees to search across the company, connect instantly, and personalize communications whether in the office or on-the-go. The ability to strengthen internal connections is critical for modern organizations, particularly when two-thirds (67%) of U.S. workers are not engaged with their jobs.1

“We are thrilled with the reception of Structural among leading companies,” said Scott Burns, CEO & co-founder of Structural. “Our clients understand that empowering teams with Structural allows them to solve problems and pursue opportunities more effectively while creating a more connected and productive workforce.”

“At Sunrise Banks, we have intentionally built our brand from the inside out.  Thus, our culture is a significant part of our brand as our people lead the way,” said Becca Hoeft, Sunrise Banks chief brand officer. “We love how the Structural platform provides a rich profile of our team members and uses that as the basis to make communication more personal and effective across Sunrise.”

Per Gallup’s 2017 State of the American Workplace, organizations that excel in building employee engagement and success see 17% higher productivity and 21% higher profitability.*

“For 27 years, Tunheim has successfully helped clients navigate complex change,” said Kathy Tunheim, principal + CEO of Tunheim. “Structural’s deep search and communication tools help us locate the best talent for each client engagement. In our industry, we need to move quickly and communicate flawlessly, and Structural makes that possible.”

“We scaled Modern Climate for years by putting our strong employee culture at the heart of our growth strategy,” said Keith Wolf, founder & chief creative officer at Modern Climate, now part of Clear Night, a platform of brand, marketing and technology companies. “Now that we’re joining forces with multiple companies as part of Clear Night, we see the benefits of the search and engagement capabilities in Structural to blend talent, communicate transparently, and drive performance on our expanded team.”
