Sequoia Launches The Grove Online Community

Exclusive Network Brings Together Leaders from People-Driven Companies to Share Best Practices and Exchange Ideas

SAN FRANCISCO – July 27, 2021 – Sequoia, a pioneer in Total People Investment today announced The Grove Online Community, an online network on the Sequoia People Platform to bring together some of the brightest minds in human resources and finance at people-driven companies. With The Grove Online Community integrated into HRX, leaders can easily collaborate and connect with the Sequoia’s client community from the same centralized platform where they access their people data, benchmarking and insights, benefits programs, and industry resources.

The Grove Online Community helps people-driven leaders be more effective by offering them:

  • Discussion threads to crowdsource ideas, share best practices, and collaborate on industry topics
  • Feedback channels to give input on Sequoia products, services, and solutions
  • Industry resources and information about upcoming Sequoia events and product updates

In May, The Grove Online Community launched an Early Adopter Program with more than 100 clients to help shape the online experience. Participants have collaborated on a range of topics including, preventing remote employee burn-out, supporting new parents, and compensation for distributed workers.

“In the world of massively online, free-to-play video games, sharing advice and making lasting connections with our players is key to our success. Making connections with other business leaders helps us understand trends and improve our operations,” said Stan Watt, president of US operations and deputy CFO of Wargaming, and early adopter program participant. “The Grove Online Community has been a valuable destination to learn from colleagues across Sequoia’s network and I look forward to its continued growth.”

“The Grove Online Community is a natural extension of our annual The Grove conference, where for the past six years HR and finance professionals have tapped into a wealth of knowledge and expertise from people-focused organizations,” said Greg Golub, founder and CEO of Sequoia. “We’ve heard from our client community — particularly HR leaders who’ve always valued the power of community — that they want more opportunities to come together, and we’re delighted to help them do that efficiently and on one platform.

Sequoia’s clients can access The Grove Online Community from the Community tab at the top of the Sequoia HRX landing page. To learn more about Sequoia HRX, visit
