We’re a mission-led company building an AI-powered employee voice platform that helps people communicate and share important insights, insights that are heard by the right people at the right time. We're working to achieve this through a people-first, real-time approach.
To make work better by improving bottom-up communication
At GetHerd, we're purpose driven to help people share their ideas and feedback, whenever and wherever they are. Every day, millions of people around the world see ways to make things better. They have valuable feedback that would make a difference if the right people heard it. Many observe things that are just not right but can't speak up.
Our communication platform supports people to share insights in the moment, when it matters the most. Picking up peoples insights earlier has the power to predict and prevent red flags becoming big problems and big opportunities becoming lost.
Our platform pushes forward what's possible
Using a variety of approaches, we want to break new ground by leveraging insight data - using advanced machine learning models and sentiment analytics - to begin to predict and prevent future problems and see potential opportunities.
We’re creating a new category at an intersection of communication, surveying, and productivity. We're driven by the desire to surface unreachable insights and unheard voices. Decisions driven by broader, more inclusive and diverse groups have a higher likelihood of resulting in better outcomes.
Our principles guide who we are and what we build
At GetHerd, we believe in the collective power of the HERD, the insights of many always outperform the opinions of a few. Getting things done in a way that is Honest, building products that are Ethical and connect people. Providing a place where great work can happen with Recognition and better decisions are made because of Diversity.
James Simpson founded GetHerd in 2020 with the goal of helping people communicate bottom-up more effectively by focusing on providing an accessible, mobile-first safe space, away from busy communication channels or social media portals. By addressing the biases in these forms of communication, as well as seeing the many areas where no pathways to being heard exist beyond a tucked away paper box or hotline, it became clear: the potential for GetHerd to help in enterprise and the community could power better economic and societal outcomes. Over the next 10 years, we want to grow the capability of an AI-powered employee voice platform to predict and prevent some of the key challenges in the workplace and society.
People spend a lot of time and energy at work. It can be a source of fun, inspiration and learning but it can also be a source of anxiety and frustration. It’s important for people to know that their voice is heard and matters. We believe that giving people a platform to share what matters to them is one of the highest leverage things we can do to improve the experience of work and life.
