What do you like best?
I like that it allows us to reach out to teams to see what is working well and what is not. Providing the anonymity to give feedback and make improvements that help boost the morale around the office. We are able to be open with our supervisors and that has helped them to make changes around the office that make us feel heard.
What do you dislike?
Anonymous seems to be somewhat relative, when you are a small company it can be somewhat easy to figure out who is who and we had a lot of push back when we first introduced TinyPulse to our company. People were afraid to share exactly what they wanted to of fear of it being traced back to them. There is not a whole lot TP can do about people's personalities coming out in their comments, but it would be nice if there was another way to mix it up for those who don't believe u s when we say it is anonymous.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
I would say the bigger your company the more impactful this site will be. We are not as small as we used to be so I really like this approach when it comes to sharing and suggesting. I feel heard in a company that is floating around only 100 people, I would imagine it would be even better if you felt little or unheard in a company of 500. TinyPulse keeps us aware of our interaction with our teams, outside of our own peripheral vision. Looking forward for both ourselves and our group as a whole.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have created a culture committee to be liaisons between the TinyPulse suggestions and the company actions. This has given people who may not be as comfortable commenting or suggesting things an alternative method to reach out. Each team has their own representative and about once a week all representatives get together to share, suggest and problem solve. Both little and big concerns around the office have been adressed. From IT and program downloads, to team building suggestions all the way up to time-off additions! We have a great "wall of wins" to remind us how far we have come since we began using TP.
