As Volt International’s Head of HR, during the early part of 2021 I came across WeThrive entirely by chance and I am so glad that I did!
Covid, lockdowns, and subsequent home working affected everybody especially with the way in which we were able to interact and communicate with our people. We took the opportunity to conduct a WeThrive engagement survey to take a temperature test of our business and the results were fascinating. The heatmaps that the survey generated gave us insight into the areas of our business where we had challenges to deal with, which to be honest we probably didn’t even know existed!
What was more useful, was when we conducted a follow up survey 6 months later. On the whole there had been improvements in engagement across the business but there was one particular business unit where scores had plummeted. There was nowhere for that manager to hide as the results spoke for themselves, and thanks to WeThrive we were able to act quickly to tackle the problem. We found so much value in the post-survey action plans, which were filled with a wealth of resources, recommendations and training material that has been really useful and has provided us with tools to help develop our managers to get the best out of their people.
We’ve had some really great feedback about the individual employee Mental Health Surveys – it’s confidential, it gives employees a safe way to record how they are feeling, but more importantly it provides tools and resources to help them feel better about themselves.

We like how WeThrive sheds light on opportunities as well as vulnerabilities, so we plan to continue distributing the surveys regularly to help identify any potential risks and address them quickly. The surveys also confirm that our latest initiatives are working. Our current recruitment drive will result in the team expanding, so we hope to see everything we’ve put in place benefit our current and new employees alike.

I have been extremely impressed with the WeThrive product. As a new user, we have found the onboarding process extremely professional and the service has been excellent. Our team has found the system very easy to navigate and user-friendly. Having just received our first set of results, as a business it has been very revealing and helpful to see the various data analysis and how we compare to other companies within and outside of our industry. As a management team, this has really allowed us to laser focus our attention on the correct areas to maximise value for our staff and us as a business. Thank you to the team at WeThrive, particularly to Rachel and Lauren who have made the whole process seamless and highly successful.
How Harwoods enabled their managers to boost engagement
Harwoods designed their manager conference around the theme “Relay” with all messages connecting back to this. They created a fun activity to get their managers even more involved in discussing the challenges in their teams and, importantly, working out how to fix them. They went back to sports day with 100 managers joining forces for a mega relay race featuring 4 enormous cubes – each relating to one of the surveys low scoring areas.
