About Us

We are an exciting, new, London based company, headquartered in Farringdon, opening up new ways for people to give and get help in the workplace. We empower people with a platform to ask questions and voice issues anonymously, and efficiently share their experience with colleagues. Businesses using us can understand and solve problems earlier, and gain unique culture insights. When our clients talk about us, this is what they say:

"There is no greater value to me as a manager, friend and colleague, than having the opportunity to truly listen to, and hear, concerns and questions that my co-workers are grappling with. I have learned more via XXXX than I have in nearly any other avenue. It creates a safe, positive, helping community." Global Managing Partner, Heidrick & Struggles

"We launched XXXX following feedback that some of our juniors were not getting the support they needed from their immediate line manager when they needed it. The idea was why be limited to just one manager when you could access advice from hundreds. So much of culture lies under the surface – but XXXX helps bring issues into the open. I highly recommend it." Managing Director, Head of Culture and Client Marketing, UBS Investment Bank

"Culture is a top priority for us. We already use employee surveys and chat systems. XXXX allows individual, anonymous questions, and is very different. It sends a message that whoever you are, whatever your role or location, your voice matters." CEO, Standard Life Aberdeen
