Officevibe

I think Officevibe is great for any office where management truly cares about how happy their employees are and is interested in making their company a great place to work. It's a quick and easy way for staff to give you honest thoughts and opinions that you can act on to make improvements

Peakon

Peakon is a very simple way to get valuable feedback about your company. For very very small teams, it would be difficult to keep the results anonymous even though Peakon aggregates responses for small teams. Aside from that, it's difficult to think of a company that wouldn't benefit from such a quick, clean survey every few weeks. Especially in large companies, where leadership can start to get separated from the levels below, this sort of feedback is critical.

Pros

Officevibe

  • Feedback from employees was both consistent and swift - it doesn't take employees long to respond to questions.
  • You can diversify the areas in which you're seeking feedback.
  • Dashboard metrics / reports were great.

Peakon

  • Peakon looks beautiful and feels very light, which is comforting when you're (potentially) giving negative feedback and feel anxious. The emails are friendly and the survey is super clean.
  • The surveys are very easy to navigate. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like, skipping forward and backward, and choosing to provide comments when you want. It's low pressure and feels flexible.
  • The HR department is able to respond to your comments. You can then have a back and forth conversation while remaining anonymous. This really helps employees further explain and contextualize their survey comments without identifying themselves personally.

Cons

Officevibe

  • The one thing that I wish I could change would be that I am also sent the same survey that the staff gets and my answers count. We're a very small office so I feel that my answers skew the results no matter how I answer the questions. And it also skews the results if I just don't answer them as well, so it would be nice if I could have the surveys not come to me.
  • The only other thing you would want to be careful of if you are an office as small as ours is that even though the feedback is truly anonymous as far as the software is concerned - if you only have a few people in your office you can sometimes tell who wrote the comment simply because you're familiar with the way each person speaks and writes, and the words and phrases that they use. You just simply have to be careful to take it at it's face value as if you didn't know who wrote it. This really isn't a weakness of Officevibe itself - it's just simply due to the fact that when you work so closely with just a few people you tend to learn peoples writing styles. If you're a bigger office it probably won't be an issue.

Peakon

  • There doesn't seem to be a way to see my previous responses to survey questions. I would be very interested to see how my answers have changed over time -- that would be a great insight.
  • The questions never change. As a user, I don't know if this is because our HR department doesn't change them or inflexibility on Peakon's side, but it can make filling out the survey over and over again a chore. Sometimes when a problem persists, it feels like my comments are just going into the void.
  • The number rating system (NPS) isn't always the best way to respond to some questions, although there is always the option to provide written context to your choice.

Alternatives Considered

Officevibe

I didn't try anything else - Officevibe came across my desk and I went with it. I'm not sure what other options there are out there, but I'm sure there are a few. It's probably worth giving them a look, but if you're looking to keep your finger on the pulse of your company culture and employee happiness / engagement, Officevibe is not a bad choice at all.

Peakon

SurveyMonkey is a great survey tool that also allows responders to stay anonymous, but I think Peakon is more effective for corporate feedback. It offers more reports and analytics specifically for HR and feels more professional. We often use SurveyMonkey for more lighthearted surveys (e.g., what to eat for team lunch) while keeping Peakon for employee feedback.

Return on Investment

Officevibe

  • I used it to decide how best to allocate my resources for employee benefits and perks. I was able to find out which ones were truly important to them and which ones they didn't really care about so I knew which ones to spend my money on.
  • I've also been able to see whether I'm doing a good job as a manager and where I need to improve, whether it be in terms of management style, leadership, communication or even things like policy - I'm able to see what is working and what isn't and make adjustments accordingly.

Peakon

  • When HR makes changes based on the feedback from Peakon, it increases employee happiness and engagement. (On the flip side, if survey responses are frequently ignored, it can make employees feel even more disconnected.)
  • Because employees can stay anonymous through Peakon, they are more likely to give important honest feedback they might otherwise be too afraid or shy to say.
  • Peakon streamlines communication with HR. Employees know the survey comes every two weeks and may hold off on bothering HR with minor feedback and wait instead for the survey. This can help save time and consolidate employee feedback in one place.
