5.0/5 (4 reviews)

Honestly overview

Honestly is a provider of cloud-based software for the collection of employee and also customer feedback for the purpose of improving business performance. Scalable to meet the needs of growing organizations and Enterprise-level users, the solution also promises to analyze the gathered feedback and engagement to provide actionable insights around enhancing working practices, retaining valuable employee talent and also raising satisfaction levels. Such feedback is collected via a system of automated pulse surveys geared to measuring certain areas, while allowing custom, branded surveys to be created around tailored questions. Honestly claims to be capable of handling the engagement of a workforce numbering in the tens of thousands and supporting over 25 global languages.

Boasting analytical and reporting capabilities that include custom dashboard-based visualizations, the web-based system is also multi-channel. Feedback can not only be collected through the browser, but also via email, mobile and indeed Honestly's own purpose-built terminal stands. Supported by a trio of native smartphone apps for iOS and Android devices, Honestly Engage provides on-the-move employees with remote access for answering regular surveys, submitting anonymous feedback to employers securely, voicing concerns, suggesting improvements and also checking personal engagement ratings against peers. Honestly Manager then receives incoming feedback notifications and allows responses to be posted to employees or customers, read and managing incoming feedback as it happens. Lastly, Honestly Terminal converts an iOS (iPad) or Android tablet into its own feedback terminal, connecting to a valid Honestly account via management code login.

Honestly is the most flexible Employee Engagement software out there

Knowing what the strengths and weaknesses of our company, our team and processes are - which usually employees do not dare to communicate so honestly. Plus our employees felt seen and appreciated and were thus more motivated.

Honestly makes annual employee engagement surveys obsolete

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

We realized that in order to be successful in the long-term, we need to focus on employee engagement. Traditional annual engagement surveys are slow and require a lot of planning and effort. On the other side, there's Honestly. The setup of Honestly is a breeze, basically after 5 minutes I was able to launch my pulse survey to all of my employees. The surveys can be scheduled flexibly, we chose the weekly option to get new data every week so we can act on it immediately. The employees receive an email or a push notification (which can also be freely configured) to fill out a 2-minute survey and as soon as there is enough data to ensure anonymity, the dashboard gets filled with data (a magic moment if you witness it for the first time). It's just really fun to scroll through all the feedback, apply filters and get to new ideas on how to improve your employee engagement score.

- multiple languages supported - anonymity of employees - a variety of feedback channels: email, app, web, feedback terminal - pulse surveys (great for discovering problematic areas in the workforce) - customizable surveys (great for ad hoc one-off surveys) All in all, Honestly satisfies all of our needs and is a full-fledged employee engagement solution. Highly recommended.

Honestly is a cloud-based, multi-channel feedback collection solution that promises to encourage honest, anonymous employee and customer engagement to produce actionable insights for driving business performance.

Weekly pulses and custom surveys enable businesses and employers to drill down deeper into the perceived success of working practices, with employees invited to respond anonymously without exposure.

GDPR Compliance protects sensitive data according to EU laws, while international Enterprise-wide deployment is facilitated with support for over 25 languages.

Available purpose-built feedback terminals can be deployed by Enterprise businesses and employers of blue collar workers (often without mobile phone or email access) and other staff working off of the typical office grid.
