Meet Leo. Leo is our new colleague. Leo is a software robot, who automates one of the jobs as a leader: Investigating the happiness and well-being of your employees, and generating proposals for actions.
Leo does that by:
- Gathering input and feedback from employees on wellbeing and engagement
- Analysing the data
- Comparing the data to big data in the global database
- Presenting suggestions and recommendations to you
Technically, Leo is an application from OfficeVibe on a server somewhere. To us, Leo lives as an app in Slack, and hence Leo now is part of the Slack team. You cannot have a chat with him, though. Yet.
OfficeVibe has a huge database of questions, answers to compare your answers with, and trends in those big data. Based on the data you provide, Leo shows dashboards with your stats and with others in your peer segment, and provides input to you as a leader of a team or a company.
So, in that sense Leo is an assistant to the leader, and has taken over the mundane data gathering and presentation. Leo is in some way a helpful robo-boss.
