Empower live employee voice.


Empower live employee voice.

No one understands life inside an organisation better than its employees.  

They're in constant contact with your customers and suppliers, and witness the breakthroughs and frustrations of the workplace first-hand. 

It makes sense, then, to start listening really listening – to these key stakeholders.

Listening organisations don't just react to feedback, they proactively seek it. Feedback mechanisms are dynamic and inclusive, fostering a culture of continuous dialogue and improvement. 

Leaders who embrace the age of listening gain the all-important competitive advantage.

Case Study

Real-time employee voice in action

"Harkn lets people voice their views, comments, and opinions anonymously and to everyone. And we are actively encouraging it, because the worst thing you can do is wait to hear the feedback in an exit interview - we don't want that. We want to solve those problems up front and prevent them in future. Harkn is helping us to gain more insights, because it's very difficult when you're deeply involved in things to see some of those blind spots.

Live sensemaking

Unlocking employee voice benefits everyone, not just leadership. Live and continuous dialogue helps people to make sense of complex and evolving situations together, fostering shared awareness and enabling aligned action.

Improved wellbeing

Live insights help identify signs of struggle in individuals, as well as patterns that indicate a problem is affecting your workforce more widely. Being able to share openly, safely, and in real time builds trust and connection.

Live employee voice with Harkn

Our platform bridges the gap between leaders and their people by providing always on, always live channels for communication.

By ensuring anonymity at every turn, we enable psychological safety and remove barriers like power distance and unconscious bias.

The Daily Check-In

The Daily Check-In

Harkn asks individuals how they're feeling (0-100 scale) and why they're feeling that way (freeform narrative) every day.

This gives leaders live insight into morale and motivation across their teams, while for individuals it builds emotional self-regulation into the working day. 

The Wall

The Wall

The Wall brings together voices from across your organisation, providing a safe space for employees to raise their ideas, opinions, and concerns.

This rolling dialogue is an invaluable resource for leaders looking to get a realistic picture of life in their organisation.

The Good Day Ratio

The Good Day Ratio

The Good Day Ratio reflects sentiment across your organisation in clear, numerical terms. Calculated from the daily check-in, it shows you the number of good days to bad people are having at work.

This ratio acts as a live and dynamic employee voice dashboard. 


“Discussion on the Wall is about realism – it’s acknowledged and not shied away from, and that’s helping to create a positive, inclusive culture… what Harkn is doing is giving people the opportunity to listen, and to understand that real-time employee voice is worth listening to. It says: lets understand this and the insights we get from it – the peaks and the troughs. It’s amazing.”
