New tool measures sentiment of your employees


Fast-growing Perkbox has launched a new tool capable of measuring the sentiment of people within your business.

Perkbox has made a name for itself with a service which offers around 250 ‘perks’, including discounts and freebies to employees of subscribed businesses. Its clients include OpenTable, Nandos, Hawksmoor, Rentalcars and Levi Strauss & Co.

It has today launched Perkbox Insights, what it describes as a simple, lightweight tool to measure employee engagement.

The London and Sheffield-based firm says it is aiming to help HR teams break down silos between management and staff by creating an environment in which everyone feels safe sharing information –allowing problems to be solved before they turn into bigger issues.

Every week, Insights automatically checks-in with your teams to ask them about their day at work, management and what can be improved. It cuts right to questions that matter through a complete library of engagement questions, based on the most up-to-date research undertaken in collaboration with HR specialists, behavioural psychologists and customers.

“For employers looking to improve performance and increase employee engagement, the data and trends generated by our new Insights product will allow them to see exactly how their performance improves over time,” said Ben Leeds, director of product at Perkbox.

“Further, HR leaders, managers and teams will be able to hold themselves accountable and track the progress that has been made on employee feedback and concerns throughout the transition.”

The technology automatically spots and highlights team, individual and company trends. It uses real-time dashboards highlighting trending feedback and keeping everyone accountable for making meaningful changes.

The product will be enhanced with artificial intelligence capabilities such as providing predictive insights into employee churn across teams in organisations.

Perkbox aims to sign up 5,000 customers in the next six months and is offering a free 12-month subscription for a limited time period.
