GATHER

Monitoring real-time emotions to build an organization’s affective intelligence.

 

"Having difficulty articulating your feelings at work? GATHER yourself."

It's well-known that an employee's workplace emotions influence more than their mood. How a worker feels on the job can impact everything from individual creativity to a company's bottom line. While emotional data is crucial to organizational life, capturing individual reactions to office dynamics presents a unique challenge. As moments pass, the feelings they trigger are often lost with them. GATHER captures workplace emotions in real-time, giving employees the tools to revisit and better manage their workday interactions.

Embedded in email and chat clients, employees “GATHER” reactions by clipping communications and recording their emotional impact. Over time, GATHER builds a comprehensive profile of the employee's interactions with others. This data is further aggregated to reflect the communication of teams, departments and the company as whole. GATHER encourages employees to articulate feelings while creating a point of reference to better understand them.
