Putting emotion at the heart of employee relationships
Emotie… Is the Dutch word for emotion and is a name that perfectly encapsulates the product’s true USP – Emotion. The rounded nature of the typography ensures that the name is easy to read and more importantly, has a friendly and relaxed vibe unlike other drab HR platforms in the market.
The “Emotiees” that our design team created are characters representing different employee emotions, each with a distinct colour based on commonly understood colour psychology e.g. yellow for the happiest emoticon, red for the most distressed. Users are also able to select a profile picture which is featured when managers review employee responses, making the whole process more personalised and focused on the individual.
By designing the app mobile-first, we ensured that it worked perfectly on smaller touch screens therefore connecting managers and employees irrespective of location – perfect for mobile workforces.
To encourage both employees and managers to use the platform, they are prompted by notifications. Managers are able to view employees real-time responses both in a list and graph format, allowing them to analyse any particular trends.
