Why are we called hug?
Receiving a sincere, open and honest hug was the start of our journey. The type of hug that makes you feel understood, and not judged. We thought, wouldn’t it be great if we all felt like that at work?
What exactly does hug do?
The hug platform was built with people at its heart, opening feedback channels that focus on four different distinct modules; engagement at work, mental health, lifestyle and financial health.
The modules are based on tried and tested, psychologically proven techniques to derive and stimulate a genuine response to the questionnaires. Each employee, regardless of standing within the company, fills out an easy to use questionnaire, on either a tablet, smart phone or desktop computer – whichever way suits them, whenever it suits them.
These completely anonymous insights enable full reporting on a companywide view of the workforce, indicating common themes perhaps where employees themselves feel that they have training gaps, whether they need support with their wellbeing or if they feel fulfilled in the office, and at home.
These comprehensions often highlight some clear actions and improvements to enable you to build and support your best workforce possible. But don’t worry, you aren’t on your own to trawl through the data. The platform instinctively suggests pathways for each individual, which could be NHS choices guides for better sleep, sign posts to help with debt management or even discounts on gym memberships to help employees get fitter and healthier.
