Presently, the voting interval is fixed to once per week. We are alreday working on different interval options, that should be available in July.
Why are you asking for the mood and reasons once a week?
As for the most office environments the working week ends on fridays, we want employees of all branches to be able to review their week. Many branches like transport/logistic, healthcare, production facilities, gastronomy and retail stores, have saturdays and sundays included in their working week. Additionally many companies have employees in both areas, which requires the working week to include all days of the week.
To make sure every employee can review the week, we ask for a mood review on thursday and friday (reminder) once per week. However the days when the mood review emails are sended can be changed.
Changing from weekly to other time frames
We are working on flexible timeframes to ask for the mood review. Soon (we estimate July) it will be possible to change the voting intervall to
- 2 or 3 weekly
- monthy, etc...
As for the many different requirements and strategical use cases CompanyMood is used in companies around the world, this may be necessary for your company. However you should take in consideration, that a higher frequency will increase the pressure on the responsible persons to work with the feedback and present results and maybe measures to react on the feedback.
What employees expect
To satisfy the employees expectations for the outcome of a weekly mood review, it will be perfect to present and discuss the results with your team once a month. We suggest to gather the information of a month (filter by month and export a pdf) and present the most mentioned topics, overall mood and maybe some selected comments (which should not give any hint to the person).
In average the effort to read, analyse and present the feedback, will be 1-2 hours per month for an executive with 40 people (in average).
