Why PollUp.io

"Good managers can spot when systems are failing. The best managers have their team do it for them. The key is giving them a chance to speak." - Reid Hoffman

A Heartbeat Monitor for Your Company

PollUp.io is a single question polling software designed to gather meaningful data while aligning the values of the company with the people who drive it. We exist to create a workplace environment where assessment and engagement come together.

We have re-envisioned the way we gather feedback by creating a tool to interact with employees in frequent intervals. When there's a disruption of satisfaction in your workplace, you are the first to know.

Only 32% of employees will be engaged at work this year

The Shift

Over the past few years, many companies have shifted to spending more time simply engaging and understanding their employees to help boost morale and happiness throughout the business. Happy employees stay focused, productive, and want to help out the organization that has kept them feeling that way. It's that simple, and it is why businesses should put 2x as much energy towards engagement as they should towards performance reviews.

The Process

It starts with just a single question.

By asking employees one meaningful question a day a company can get a digestible pulse of what is exactly happening in the workplace. One question leads to a 21.5% increase in responses and yields more honest feedback. Use PollUp.io to get real-time feedback from employees for less than 60 seconds a day.
