Our story

Founded in 2017, WorkStep is a software company focused on helping organizations engage and retain their frontline workforce.

When Portland native, co-founder, and CEO Dan Johnston managed a 3rd party logistics warehouse, he experienced the high cost and low reward of using temporary labor agencies. Over time, his warehouse transitioned to a direct-hire model, which reduced costs & lifted retention, but labor remained a challenge for their operation.

After starting in the logistics space and moving to software, Dan and Justin (Co-founder & CTO), sought to solve the larger issue by uniting the two industries and created a technology ally for frontline workers and employers.

Today, WorkStep is helping leading companies within e-commerce, manufacturing, retail, CPG, transportation, and logistics retain their frontline and drive bottom-line growth.
