Chronus, a Seattle-based company offering an employee development platform with mentorship and ERG management, has acquired Imperative, another Seattle-based platform focused on employee engagement.

The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

By acquiring Imperative, Chronus aims to:

  • Provide personalized insights for employees and employers through a proprietary purpose assessment
  • Increase user engagement with guided conversation technology
  • Enable customers to track the impact of purpose-driven conversations on employee engagement

Chronus, led by CEO David Satterwhite, helps companies address workplace disengagement and employee turnover through mentoring and development solutions.
