Great managers know the power of a happy, engaged and high-performing team, but typically are challenged to capture the softer side of performance, and rely on personal check-ins to go beyond quantitative signals. This means data gathering is flawed; happening sporadically, with bias and lacking the trend lines so valuable in measuring performance.
At Niko Niko we make tracking mood data easy and engaging. Based on the agile software development methodology of the same name, Niko Niko is an app that enables teams of people to track mood or sentiment in reaction to activities and objectives. Our detailed analytics dashboard presents the data in an actionable form to measure the well-being of a team and utilize it as a signal in management practices.
The inspiration for Niko Niko is the emerging field of positive psychology and the research of Martin Seligman at University of Pennsylvania. Managers and individuals will use Niko Niko as the platform to track and measure Seligman’s three central components of happiness: positive emotion, meaning and engagement.
