“People analytics” startup VoloMetrix raises $12 million

Seattle-based “people analytics” venture VoloMetrix today is announcing that it raised $12 million, bringing its overall funding to $17 million.

The company builds software that big companies use to track and analyze employee behavior and build an internal “social graph.” Here’s how it describes the technology:

The anonymous and aggregated data extracted from company emails and calendars illuminates organizational health issues and provides actionable insights for sales, customer satisfaction and employee attrition. Once companies know how time is spent, they can analyze trends and develop business objectives to help streamline and improve performance.

Co-founders Chris Brahm and Ryan Fuller were management consultants at Bain & Company before they started the company in 2011. Customers now include Symantec, Genentech and Seagate.

The funding was led by Split Rock Partners with participation from Shasta Ventures, which invested in the previous round of VoloMetrix funding.
