Hive Platform Features
Set the right pace for your organisation by working with our team to craft a tailored survey approach—considering baseline, pulse, themed and targeted surveying.
Ask meaningful questions and get relevant feedback, with complete freedom over survey crafting with a choice of 130+ in Hive’s question bank.
Show you’re always open to burning questions, brilliant ideas and niggling concerns with our always-on listening tool, Open Door.
Let your people shout loud and proud about their coworkers with our values-driving peer recognition tool, Hive Fives.
“The flexibility of Hive is essential to what we want to achieve. We’re able to adapt and change as we need to and we can influence what questions we ask and how we approach our surveys. Not forgetting other feedback tools, like Open Door and Hive Fives, which just make the platform everything you need under one roof.
Hive just works for Calico in a way that no other platform could—it helps us to reach our extremely diverse teams and it appeals to everyone.”
