Employees – The Heart & Soul of a Company
Have you given a thought to the simple fact that the employees are the heart of any company? Without employees there would not be a real business to run nor success or dreams to chase after. One could simplify that the founder provides the company with its foundations and the employees its soul – the living force which makes or breaks the company.
For this very reason it’s profoundly important to take care of the employees and make their work life the best possible. What would be a better way to handle all of this than to spread positivity and acknowledge a good deed with a hug, and not just any hug, but a WunderHug?
The WunderHug brings positive feedback to the hugged person in a digital form and also makes their paycheck a bit sweeter! We have created our very own hug system to recognize and reward those who go above and beyond to help others in everyday work life.
Under the Hood of WunderHugs
Everyone at Wunder has five hugs to give, every week, for any reason. We’ve come to the conclusion that five is the perfect number for us – however, you are free to determine the most suitable number of hugs per week for the company you represent. With each hug, an employee writes a positive comment which is then anonymously delivered to the recipient via the HugPortal and with a monthly HugReport sent by email.
Helping others, giving advice and support, doing your job well and otherwise being “huggable” is even better when your actions are noted!
Uniting Company, Its Culture & Employees
Above all WunderHugs is a positive booster for company culture and a neat way to nurture it by means of a user-friendly online interface – a single hug can be given in seconds, but its positive affect will last much longer.
WunderHugs is genuinely the best feedback system we’ve experienced. The system obeys no rank nor organization chart, but really gives recognition for actions worth hugging. When given the chance, people say the most amazing things to each other, otherwise expressed way too rarely.
We think that the best ideas are worth of loads of hugs, and to be honest, our employees think so too when it comes to WunderHugs…
WunderHugs Broken Down into Numbers
We ordered a study of the WunderHugs from Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in order to gain a neutral insight into its outcomes within Wunder. The research team sent a detailed enquiry to the employees of Wunder and received quite a hefty collection of feedback as a result. We’d love to share some of those results with you now.
