Employee Voice

The Employee Voice is an AI-driven qualitative analytical system that allows organizations and researchers to explore work factors based on employees’ lived experiences.

Findings from the Employee Voice are presented for the organization overall and within predetermined groups based on themed participant responses to qualitative questions. These questions can be employed as an add-on to existing Afriforte quantitative diagnostic products or as a standalone product.

Combining the Afriforte diagnostic products with the Employee Voice product provides companies with the best of both worlds by creating additional insights based on quantitative and qualitative perspectives within the context of the OHFB and helping and hindering factors at work. A standalone project takes an entirely exploratory qualitative stance and identifies themes created by employees in the context of the organization’s open-ended questions.

This product creates a space for employees to feel heard by their organization through gaining insight into aspects the organization may not consider and creating a holistic representation of employee experiences.

Steinmüller Africa’s Sasol Mill Maintenance (MM) team in Secunda significantly improved their safety record last year after struggling with one Recordable Case (RC) safety incident on average every two months previously.

Talent Manager, Bilfinger Power Africa (Pty) Ltd.

Aspiring for high performance without ensuring a conducive underlying work climate is like trying to drive a car without an engine. The process enhanced and encouraged the identification of greater opportunities for continuous improvement in our business based on valid and reliable information. Our business has not only became a nicer place to work but we have, and continue to, become even better at what we do.
