Five Guys win for Newcastle software firm


Oak Engage has been brought in by fast-growing burger restaurant, Five Guys, to connect its workforce during the pandemic.

The Newcastle firm created the “Chatty Patty” platform to help its teams throughout the UK, France, Germany and Spain. 

“We launched Oak to the entire Five Guys workforce in the middle of the pandemic, and it’s been a game-changer in the way we communicate and engage with our people,” explained Chris Raaff, Head of Recruitment and Internal Communications at Five Guys.

“We don’t know what we would have done during 2020 if we didn’t have Oak. Just about every single restaurant said that Chatty Patty was such a lifeline to them and reassured them that the business was going to survive and that they were going to be kept safe.”

“Oak is almost addictive. It feels like a window into our restaurants. We’re celebrating promotions, we’re celebrating new hires to the business and that gives us confidence that our teams feel good.” 

Oak enables businesses to engage and connect their people through its cloud-based mobile app and SaaS (Software as a Service) platform.

“We understand just how important it is for businesses to stay connected with their employees, especially during the pandemic, so we’re delighted to be able to support Five Guys during this transition, offering a streamlined process and giving them the tools they need to engage their workforce,” added Will Murray, CEO at Oak Engage.

“In such a short space of time, Chatty Patty has brought the Five Guy’s community closer than they could have ever imagined and we will continue to support them to make sure they’re getting the most out of the platform and in turn making their workforce happier and more productive.”
