AI company expands benefits with Goodly student loan platform


GumGum, a Santa Monica, California-based technology and artificial intelligence company, has expanded its employee benefits offering to include student loan repayment through the Goodly provider platform.

Going into the open enrollment period, executives at GumGum knew they wanted to make some enhancements to the benefits offerings for 2020, says Kelly Battelle, vice president of people operations. The company has about 300 employees scattered across its global operations, and the majority of its U.S.-based workers are millennials or younger. Company CEO Phil Schraeder decided to implement the student loan benefit to attract and retain younger employees.
