A year after COVID-19 first hit India, we are still in the midst of the pandemic. This second wave of the coronavirus has left us more worried about just everything.
The situation is grim and the challenges are taking a toll on our lives each day. The coronavirus outbreak hit many, especially big and small companies all over India. COVID-19 has come as a once-in-a-lifetime crisis for many of these enterprises and it is a big threat.
Amidst this, House of Cheer, a company promoted by former Viacom 18 COO, Raj Nayak has announced one of its service, tech-enabled Employee Voice 24/7 platform, to small, medium, and large companies, free of cost.
How Does Employee 24/7 Work?
Employee Voice 24/7 is a platform where the employees will be able to give their feedback anonymously on how they are feeling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This will give the companies the ability to listen to them on a real-time basis and then analyse their key concerns and feelings. Also, they are allowed to share that insight to drive the internal communications strategy with their leaders on the open survey.
This comes at a time when it has become important for organisations to understand their employees more than ever.
The Idea Behind Employee Voice 24/7
Founder of Happyness.me, Raj Nayak shared, "This past year has been extremely tough for all of us and during times like these we need to come together, help one another and do our part. Many of us have been working from home and although we might be digitally connected, we are disconnected in so many ways. We are emotionally isolated, anxious and stressed."
He further announced the launch of Employee Voice 24/7 absolutely free of cost to all the companies, be it small or big for the next 6 months.
Raj Nayak further shared that Employee Voice 24/7 empowers C-Suite leaders and helps them understand their employees better. He shared that the employees have to simply click on a link and answer some quesiotns and express their feelings anonymously.
"Our research shows that employees post the pandemic are willing to speak more freely, give feedback and speak honestly through platforms that are separate from their organisation. Employee Voice 24/7 organises this feedback in a unique dashboard with actionable insights that energises leadership to improve communication and employee well being," he shared.

This provides them with psychological safety, autonomy, independence, a positive work environment, and a sense of being valued.

As companies and their employees struggle to overcome the challenges, it is an undisputable fact that at all times, the state of mind of employees has an important bearing on both – their own happiness, and the performance and fortunes of the company. We have rolled out this free service to encourage organisations to connect with their people on a real-time basis.”
She further shared, “We would therefore encourage leaders of every organization, regardless of size, to make the Employee Voice 24/7 service a partner in their growth efforts.
