#SHRM18 Vendor Spotlight: Quantum Workplace
Quantum Workplace will be one of the vendors at the #SHRM18 in Chicago, IL. They are an employee engagement software company designed for a manager-driven work culture. Quantum Workplace is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska (my new home town). I had the opportunity to tour their new location where I conducted this interview.
Quantum Workplace is the survey engine for the “Best Places to Work” contests nationwide.
I Interviewed Natalie Hackbarth (NH), their Inbound Marketing Manager.
GT: In an elevator pitch format, what is Quantum Workplace?
NH: Quantum Workplace is an all-in-one employee engagement software that gives managers the tools they need to increase team engagement and effectiveness.
GT: How do you differentiate your product/services from other HR Tech companies?
NH: Our software differentiates in two key ways:
1) First, it’s built formanagers. Our engagement software fits right into their existing workflow, it coaches them on how to be better managers, and it transforms the way lead and engage their teams.
2) Second, it’s provides organizations all the tools they need for measuring and improving engagement in one place. It’s the only of its kind, offering survey and pulses, recognition software, goal setting and tracking software, feedback, one-on-one conversation, ideas and alerts, as well as team and company-wide analytics.
GT: How did your company decide to hold the “Best Places to Work” contests?
NH: Listening to and acting on employee opinions is crucial. Quantum Workplace wanted to honor and showcase companies that valued employee voices and treated people as the most important resource.
GT: Tell me about some of your best success stories with a client.
NH: Fossil Group uses Quantum Workplace to empower thousands of users to own and improve team engagement. PromiseShip, a non-profit based in Nebraska, had never had a method for collecting employee feedback and improving employee performance — and they now use our tool to engage employees in a continuous cycle of improvement.
GT: Are your clients asking you to collect data to determine possible gender wage gap in their organization?
NH: Not specifically, no. But employers can use our analytics feature to uncover almost any trend, gap, or blind spot they might have in their organization.
GT: What AI related features are you rolling out in your upcoming releases?
NH: Quantum Workplace just launched text analytics, giving managers the ability to make sense of employee comments at the click of a button.
