Compini (from “company” + “initiative”) provides a suite of feedback tools that align your organization by giving employees a unique platform to share their thoughts and be heard.
We pronounce Compini like “company”, except with the “com” as in “compliment” or "comprehend".
On average, people are working at ever larger organizations for shorter periods of time. Not surprisingly, and despite billions in spending, employee (+ student) engagement levels haven't budged. Compini provides a means for radically candid dialogue among members of an organization in a way that surveys and unmoderated forums can't. The result is a more engaged and responsive culture where the best new ideas can (and do) come from any internal source.
After signing up for an account, you can post new topics, comment on existing ones, and vote on what is important and/or helpful in moving conversations forward. Over time, topics with the most upvotes (vs. the loudest single voices) percolate to the top of the list, getting noticed by management and co-workers alike as the most important to address.
No. You are free to post as "hikerguy72", "TolstoyFan", or any other available username you prefer (just don't use any one else's real name).
You are free to abandon your account and sign up with a new username at any time. Any prior postings will retain their original author attribute.
Surveys provide a useful snapshot of employee sentiment at any given time. However, they have some major inherent drawbacks, including:
In addition to its discussion and reporting tools, Compini offers a polling system that allows for rolling feedback based on both general and customer-created prompts.
Paradoxically, open and transparent dialogue is often easier when people have the option of keeping their identity undisclosed. This also allows readers of topics and comments to remove any possible bias between message and messenger. While many employees choose to use their real name as their username, this is never required.
Compini provides all users with a means to downvote and report abuse, and managers with administrator rights can immediately and permanently ban anyone who doesn't follow the (very simple) rules. Interestingly, however, as Compini forums can only be viewed by others within one's own organization, people rarely want to create a toxic environment for themselves and it really hasn't come up. Through it's "props" tool, Compini also allows employees to recognize each other for positive, often unsung contributions that go above and beyond.
Compini customers report a major time savings when using the platform, especially in the following areas:
Compini is expressly designed to promote and reward long-term dialogue rather than constant notification: The average user spends seven minutes on-site, three times per month, during which they are able to read, comment, vote, and post about what is top of mind without sending or forwarding a single email.
Compini is designed to be a turnkey, easy-to-use solution for employee feedback requiring little to no user training. As a hosted service that provides for "neutral ground", no integration with existing systems or networks is required. Where helpful, however, APIs are available for incorporation within existing intranets.
We're always interested in exploring partnerships with those looking to build and reap the benefits of a culture of continuous improvement. Please contact us to schedule a brief (and worry-free) conversation.
