What brought RWK Goodman to Hive?

Before their journey with Hive began in 2021, Bianca and her team found themselves stuck wading through a lack of insight from their previous engagement surveys. Other providers lacked the depth needed to extract actionable insights. Questions weren’t targeted enough, leaving them with a canvas of responses that lacked the clarity they needed.

Recognising the need for a change, RWK Goodman embarked on a quest to find a new solution, one that could offer not just metrics but also meaningful qualitative feedback. After a meticulous tender process, Hive emerged as the clear frontrunner. The platform’s sleek design and user-friendly interface impressed RWK Goodman’s team, and Bianca felt that Hive’s culture aligned with their values.
