WHAT IS humanity
Humanity is a cloud-based workforce management software fueled by a commitment to innovation, iteration, and a customer-centric approach.

Headquartered in San Francisco, with offices around the globe, we are connected by a culture that promotes creativity, teamwork, and transparent leadership.
Our History and Mission
Humanity (FKA ShiftPlanning) was conceived by CEO Ryan Fyfe as early as 2009 on the premise that online employee scheduling could replace excel spreadsheets or pen & paper to manage staff, alleviating common headaches along the way.
Our mission is to drive employee engagement in the global scheduled and mobile workforce through an employee first approach to product design, combined with data that allows businesses to better understand how their business and workforce are operating.
