What Motivates People?

To build a strong organization, we need to understand what really motivates individuals and teams, and what pulls them down. There are six main factors that contribute to sustainable employee performance, engagement, and loyalty.














Tap Into Human Potential

How do you know if your employees are reaching their full potential? Asking how people feel - about their work, their teams, the future of their career - will help understand the gap between what is and what is possible.

It is critical for companies to build a strategy to automate and instrument your entire range of employee experiences—and develop a “feedback architecture.” Every part of your employee experience (from candidates looking for a job; new hires going through onboarding; employees at work on a daily basis; and performance checkins, reviews, and exit surveys) all bring together information you need to understand your entire “employee experience.”

Our platform provides real-time feed-back and people analytics for teams of any size.


1. Ask how they feel

Pulse surveys with open-ended questions are easy and effective for checking in, building a connection, trust and understanding. Open-ended questions generate rich and insightful data. 

2. Listen to understand and build empathy

When we see how people feel, even when their emotions are different from our own, we learn to understand each other better. This understanding leads to building cognitive empathy. Empathy is an essential part of an effective and sustainable social system.

3. Design powerful experiences 

Listening and understanding is not enough if action does not follow. Once we understand how people feel, we can design moments of connection, trust, support and inspiration.

We partner with iBelong to measure and benchmark employee sentiment and sense of belonging in SMB tech companies (30-300 employees). iBelong is the first step towards creating a public platform that will enable job seekers to obtain a deeper understanding and awareness of the companies that they align with – allowing them to answer the question, “do I belong”?
