- Winning Tip – “We survey Annually and supported with an open Pulseometer for daily feedback.
The Pulseometer is a forum based inhouse built tool that colleagues can post feedback as and when they need under topics such as incentives, product, ideas etc….they receive a response within 24 hours that others can also see and comment upon.
The Pulseometer also records sentiments of unhappy, indifferent and happy through an emoji type icon” Thanks to Susanne 3
