Give Employees a Chance to Be Heard with Hyphen

You just performed one of your semi-annual employee engagement surveys in an effort to find out what your employees think and feel about the workplace. And, much to your delight, most of the results are positive. In fact, practically allof them are. Seem a little too good to be true?

It probably is.

While positive comments and reviews are all well and good, you can’t solve a problem you don’t know exists. And surveys aren’t always the best way to elicit truly honest — and helpful — feedback from the people who matter most to your organization: your employees.

Cue Hyphen, an anonymous feedback app designed to give employees a voice — and management and HR valuable feedback.

How Hyphen Works

Imagine a single place where you can interact with your people, ask them questions, answer theirs, post a shout-out, or crowdsource ideas. That place exists. Hyphen serves as an all-in-one anonymous feedback platform that encourages employees, management, and HR to get involved in the conversation.

For management and HR: Say goodbye to feedback that tells you what (employees think) you want to hear, and say hello to valuable feedback and insights you can use to propel your business — and people — forward. Hyphen allows users to perform company-wide polls, pose questions, crowdsource ideas, and respond to employee requests.

What’s more, Hyphen also provides management and human resources with a wealth of qualitative data on employees to help identify where problems exist and resolve those problems to boost individual and overall engagement and productivity.

Most importantly, Hyphen enables management and HR to stay on top of their employees’ opinions and requests before it’s too late (i.e. when it hits Glassdoor).   

For employees: Hyphen empowers employees by giving them a chance to ask anything, request feedback, provide their two cents, and be heard. Like management and HR, employees can also ask and answer questions and request help or feedback in an environment that’s both safe and easy to navigate.

Pros of Hyphen:

  • Easy-to-use, gamified platform.
  • Enables anonymous feedback across the entire organization.
  • Basic plan is available to users at no cost.
  • Mobile app available for Android and iPhone.

Cons of Hyphen:

  • Pricing information for starter and premium plans is not public, but is available upon request.
