BetterMe, Inc announced Thursday that its free online tools for anonymous feedback are currently being used by employees in more than 1,000 companies.
The site, which launched in February, allows users to send feedback as well as "feedback requests" on any topic, from work to school to social situations. Fifty-nine percent of feedback sent through the site is categorized by the sender as work-related.
"We are seeing a grass-roots feedback revolution in companies. People are taking BetterMe into the office, sending feedback to bosses and coworkers, and asking for comments on their own performance," said BetterMe founder and CEO Sterling Mace. "People are hungry for honest, constructive workplace communication."
David Hung, President and CEO of Medivation says that BetterMe is enabling employees to have important conversations they were previously reluctant to start. "BetterMe provides employees with an important tool to improve their own performance as well as the performance of their teams," said Hung. "Feedback is crucial to organizational development and BetterMe facilitates the exchange of constructive feedback that may not have been happening before."
Employees across a variety of companies and industries use BetterMe for workplace feedback, including a national healthcare services nonprofit, a global provider of IT products, and a multinational candy company.
