Who we are and what we do

Hive is an employee voice platform and strategic HR partnership. 

…what exactly does that mean? 

We’re a B2B SaaS (Software as a Service) business that provides our customers’ employees with a secure channel to speak up—whether that’s through surveys, or one of our other unique employee voice features.

On top of that, our People Scientists also work closely with our customers’ HR teams to: 

  • Create bespoke employee voice strategies
  • Gather as much varied and meaningful employee feedback as possible
  • Analyse and report on what those employees have to say
  • Take action off the back of the findings.
