The platform for workplace connection, inclusion, and voice.

Where listening is just the beginning.

Harkn is for organisations that value the voices of all of their employees.

Our platform makes it safe and easy for your people to speak more freely and helps you build the relationships and trust your company needs to succeed.

Listening to your people is key to building a positive and productive environment where everyone feels connected, valued, and engaged.

Harkn provides a safe environment where everyone has a voice. This means that people share things they otherwise wouldn’t, giving you valuable insights into your people and their experiences at work.

See issues sooner

See issues sooner

Harkn continuously monitors data for changes in patterns that suggest risk or concern, providing early warning signs on employees’ wellbeing. Dashboards and live commentary will help you see wider concerns and trends within your teams.

Build engagement and trust

Build engagement and trust

Traditional employee voice solutions (surveys) can make your people feel like their voice is not heard. Harkn helps you engage directly with one another, demonstrate listening, and build trust.

How it works

Harkn uses a simple and anonymous check-in routine to give everyone a voice and a safe way to use it, encouraging more of your people to speak freely about the things that matter to them.

Easy and Quick Check-in Routine

Easy and Quick Check-in Routine

  • Our daily check-in is simple, intuitive, takes seconds, and provides remarkable insight.
  • Harkn translates ratings into normalised expressions of the quality of people's days and displays them live (aggregated) in one of our many live dashboards.
  • Harkn also checks every rating for signs of decline or distress in individuals using a series of algorithms, creating an alert and a data package in our Wellbeing Centre where needed.
  • Freeform comments go to The Wall.

Safe, Anonymous, Honest.

Safe, Anonymous, Honest.

  • Harkn uses anonymity to create the psychological safety required for employees to be open and share more.
  • Safety also results in people sharing critical information sooner, which helps your management to see issues before they become crises, and helps you protect your people from avoidable risks, like burnout. 
  • Post live questions on The Wall, or set up an anonymous focus group in our Team Rooms to get to the heart of sensitive issues facing your business.
