Global hubs



Toast is dedicated to cultivating an employee culture that seamlessly brings individuals together.

Acknowledging the importance of a unified platform for employees to access a full view of engagement opportunities, Toast identified the need for a tool that serves as a singular source of truth. It also sought an easy-to-use tool to provide employees all available experiences and programs happening globally within the company. In addition, Toast wanted to reduce manual processes in event creation, and easily gather data on events to improve them for the future.


To unite employees across various time zones, have one source of truth for events and programming, and reduce manual processes in event creation and ease of reporting, Toast decided to leverage Epoch as a solution for automating their internal event-related processes.

Since implementing Epoch at Toast in 2023, there have been positive impacts:

  1. 94% of registered Toast employees have participated in at least 1 event posted on Epoch
  2. 90% of Toast employees have activated their Epoch account
  3. 2,198 average participants per month

Epoch's most notable features for Toast:

  1. The streamlined presentation of global events giving employees choice for what they participate in‍
  2. The simplicity of the platform that allows for ease of event creation; and
  3. Data and analytics on success of programs to improve programs for the future


Reduced manual processes

Toast now uses Epoch to automate their messaging so that their employees feel more empowered and have a better understanding of how they can promote their own events and make connections. Aligning with the fast pace of Toast, Epoch's design allows employees to receive information and make decisions quickly.

Additionally, any required reports, data, or technical assistance needed, was provided to ensure a seamless transition for Toast.

Epoch has greatly contributed to Toast's centralization of event and programming information. Toast has been enabled to host a wide variety of events, ranging from fun and lighthearted gatherings to valuable learning opportunities.
