Inclusion

Champion equal voice for a more inclusive workplace.

By removing the stigmas and barriers that come with personal identities, Harkn equalises employee voice and fosters a more inclusive workplace. 

This not only promotes wellbeing at work, but enhanced thought diversity and collaboration boosts productivity and innovation. 

Find out more about how Harkn creates an inclusive workplace over a virtual coffee with us. 

The benefits of an inclusive workplace

In a truly inclusive workplace, narrative – whether that's feedback, ideas or other contributions – is judged completely objectively, regardless of who said it. 

Equality

Equality

Neurodiverse individuals often struggle to communicate their ideas and opinions within a dictated format, and demographic minorities are also frequently disadvantaged by workplace structures. Allowing marginalised voices to speak up without fear of judgement or bias facilitates workplace equality.

Innovation

Innovation

Making your workplace as inclusive as possible allows you to draw upon a much broader pool of insights. When you have access to diverse perspectives, you're more likely to unlock innovation and gain the competitive advantage in today's rapidly evolving world.

Cohesion

Cohesion

When some voices consistently dominate conversation in your organisation and others rarely speak up, this disconnect will impact aligned action towards organisational goals. Create a flatter, more collaborative organisation by removing identifiers and encouraging more individuals to participate.

Performance

Performance

When your people don't feel part of your organisation's purpose and goals, they will quickly disengage. Make sure everybody's on the same page and provide a platform for them to speak safely and freely to boost participation and improve performance.

Decision-making

Decision-making

Your people understand the needs of your customers and suppliers better than anyone, but not everyone will feel able to communicate those insights. Actively fostering an inclusive workplace ensures you get the information they need when they need it, so you can make faster and better-informed decisions.

Wellbeing

Wellbeing

When you feel valued and like you belong in your organisation, you gain a sense of purpose and motivation that's essential to wellbeing at work. Being able to express your feelings without fear of judgement alleviates personal burdens and aids emotional self-regulation.

How Harkn fosters inclusion

Inclusivity is built into every element of our platform.

Anonymity at every turn ensures equal voice, while live conversation tools and focus groups give everyone the chance to participate in subjects that matter to them.

The Daily Check-In

The Daily Check-In

The Daily Check-In routine gives every individual in your organisation the chance to say how they're feeling, and why they feel that way, every day. This gives everyone a platform to express themselves in real time, and in their own words. 

The Wall

The Wall

The Wall acts as a live and continuous channel for feedback, ideas, and opinions. Because no names or avatars are attached to these contributions, each one can be considered objectively by peers and leadership. 

 

Team Rooms

Team Rooms

Team Rooms act as asynchronous, anonymous focus groups. Anyone can join a discussion about something they'd like to learn more about – from a business project to the menopause – without anyone knowing who they are. This allows problem-solving and relationship-building to flourish without stigmas and biases getting in the way. 

Reporting

Reporting

Our reporting tools allow HR and wellbeing professionals to observe patterns and trends across their oganisation, such as how a development has affected an age group or different demographic. Our reporting suite is carefully designed to provide useful insights into these trends without compromising identity – for example, demographics can’t be fine-tuned or combined to create smaller groups. 

Testimonials

"With Harkn, it's about what's being said, not who's saying it."
