About the Company
Sparrow makes it simple for employers to care for their people with the first true end-to-end leave
management solution where innovative technology is coupled with a world-class leave specialist team.
This enables mid-market employers to reduce compliance risks, enhance the employee experience,
operate better, and contain costs.
The technology integrates with HRIS and payroll systems, and automates the parts of leave
management that creates the most risk for employers: managing employee intake, filing all of the
associated insurance claims, coordinating with medical providers, and automatically providing required
notices to employees via email, mobile app, and/or text, to ensure receipt.
Additionally, Sparrow has trained and scaled a team of in-house leave experts to facilitate leave management
for our customers. Because Sparrow’s leave experts manage the leave process, end-to-end, for each and
every employee, we save our customers (specifically, their HR teams) thousands of hours per year while
also minimizing the risk of noncompliance.
