Our Journey Started in 2003
Empowering People, Businesses and Clients
Founded in 2003 by Joe Diab, Diabsolut Inc, now Empowerists, began as a ClickSoftware reseller. In 2015 with more than 70 employees the Empowerists was divided into 3 separate businesses Diabsolut FSM (ClickSoftware partner), Diabsolut Cloud Solutions (Salesforce partner) and Watershed CI our management consulting and staff augmentation business.
Seeing the need for a streamlined HRIS as our company grew in 2016, our Director of HR, Sally, saw an opportunity and launched HRWize, our HRIS solution. Today, Sally is the president of HRWize, and two new products, Earnwize (salary review tool) and Workaxle (enterprise workforce management), have been introduced under the HRWize brand.
After Salesforce acquired ClickSoftware in 2019, Diabsolut FSM and Diabsolut Cloud Solutions merged to become Diabsolut and have since gone on to become a Salesforce Summit Partner. Since 2021, we have made strategic investments to acquire Foundry52 and Emelar, also both becoming part of Diabsolut. Through these acquisitions Diabsolut strengthened their commitment to Salesforce and also entered into partnership with Certinia (was FinancialForce), becoming Certinia’s Partner of the year for delivery excellence in 2022.
Today the Empowerists are more than 300 employees globally and we continue to grow by investing in our people and businesses.
The Empowerists difference
Investing in our employees is an important part of our organizational culture, we know their hard work and dedication makes us who we are.
How many times have you met the perfect resource, that you know would really fit within your organization, but you didn’t have a role currently available? We sidestep that issue by taking on those individuals anyway and funding them temporarily within our incubator. Some of our best and brightest have come through this route.
We’re passionate about collaborating, supporting, and advocating on behalf of our customers and our success has been built on our core values.
