Max Farrell and Andrew Kirpalani are the co-founders of WorkHound.

WorkHound is a platform that allows frontline workers to provide feedback to the companies for whom they work. Max and Andrew began WorkHound in the hopes of eliminating a barrier that exists between the workers and the companies, with the ultimate goal of increasing worker retention rates and thus the success of the companies. Originally designed for truck drivers, WorkHound has since expanded to other professions such as technicians, mechanics, construction workers, and visiting healthcare providers.
