Well guys, the hourly/shift worker tech solutions space continues to sizzle. Planday, the workforce collaboration platform for shift workers, has raised €35 million pounds (about $40 million), in new funding. The Series C round is led by SEB Private Equity, with participation from previous backers,
The Danish startup plans to use the additional investment to further develop the cloud-based software and to expand into new markets across Europe and North America. This will also include establishing a U.K.-based technology development hub - which represents a major market for Planday  - as well as to grow sales and customer support teams in its London office.

Salary Finance, a FinTech financial wellbeing platform for employees, has closed a $20 million Series B investment that will be used to launch and scale Salary Finance in the US, as well as to continue to support its rapid growth in the UK.

Survey Monkey has filed for an initial IPO - The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined.

In the M&A space Background Screening provider Global HR Research (GHRR) (, has acquired easyBackgrounds (, a background screening company operating from Newfields, NH.  I don't know about you, but I've lost track of the number of background screening companies out there. I would guess it's pretty close to the number of Elvis impersonators in Vegas.

 So much for everyone going on Vacation in the month of August, guys. Along with the weather, HR Tech continues to be super-hot with lots of deals floating around. And speaking about deals, Larry, what was happening in Orlando last week?
