What is the employee dashboard?
The employee dashboard is based on an action-oriented feedback model, encouraging employees to better align with their managers and teams, while still remaining anonymous. It empowers employees to drive the change they want to see in their organisation, and ensures their voice is heard, knowing that actionable steps are in place to accelerate their personal and their team’s growth.
Survey participants can follow any prioritised drivers and actions on the team's dashboard within Peakon. This will correspond with the direct reports segment that they are in within the "Manager" attribute.
Employee dashboard activation
After the company Peakon administrator has enabled access to the employee dashboard, employees are able to activate their personal dashboard by following the flow through the survey summary page, which can be found after completing their survey.
Upon opening the activation link, you will be redirected to an account creation page, where you need to choose a secure password. The email will remain as the email address associated with your employee record on Peakon, to ensure that your answers are attributable to you.
Once activated, survey participants will be able to access their employee dashboard at any point, and there will always be a click-through path at the end of each survey guiding them into their personal dashboard, as long as access to the feature remains active in the administration settings.
Managers and leaders who already have dashboard access will be able to switch between their manager dashboard and employee dashboard through clicking into their profile on the top right corner of the Peakon dashboard.
Anonymity & privacy
Having an employee account does not compromise anonymity of past or future surveys. The employee dashboard is private to the employee, and not accessible by administrators or managers. Only the employee can access their own dashboard, by logging in using their credentials.
Frequently asked questions
What kind of questions will Peakon ask?
You’ll receive a broad selection of questions that cover how you feel about your company culture, the support and leadership you experience at work, and the direction of the company as a whole. All these factors have an effect on how happy and energised you feel at work. Peakon will then help management identify the key areas that will improve your overall culture and the effectiveness of each team.
Why does Peakon ask questions more frequently than other survey providers?
It can be frustrating to have just one chance to offer your feedback, when so much can happen in a year and you can have so many different experiences. Through Peakon you’ll be able to give your input more frequently and have a more immediate influence over how you work. Unlike a lengthy annual survey, you’ll be able to answer the questions you get from Peakon in just a few minutes from your computer, a mobile browser, or the iPhone app.
Are my answers anonymous?
The responses you give to Peakon’s questions are anonymous. We believe anonymity is essential for everyone to be heard on an equal footing, and to ensure you never feel uncomfortable raising the issues that you feel strongly about. Neither your coworkers, manager or anyone else in the organisation can see who has provided any particular answer or feedback. Responses are aggregated so individuals cannot be identified.
If it’s anonymous, how do I get sent reminders to complete the survey?
Peakon (the system) tracks whether you have responded to a survey – so that it can remind you about unanswered surveys – but this information is NOT visible to anyone in your company. Whether you have responded to the survey is never revealed to your managers. We take confidentiality extremely seriously at Peakon – if you ever have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact us.
What is "My team"?
Your team is made up of employees with who you share the same direct manager on Peakon.
What happens if my manager has not yet set any actions?
The Team priorities & actions section will be blank, however you will still be able to view your personal survey summary at the top of the dashboard.
Can I see my own scores and comments?
Currently the dashboard does not support viewing your own raw scores and comments.
I am an employee without an email address - will I be able to access my employee dashboard?
For users that are added to Peakon without an email address, it is currently not possible to create an employee dashboard.
My company uses single sign on. How should I log in using single sign on?
If single sign on is is mandated (Premier only), when clicking on the employee dashboard activation link, employees will be redirected to their single sign on page.
If single sign on is activated, but not mandated, employees will be redirected to a generic log in page where they can set up a password. They can still log in via single sign on at a later point when accessing the dashboard directly.
We don't have an active survey, but I would like to enter my employee dashboard. Can I do this?
If your company has activated the employee dashboard, you can access it through this link https://app.peakon.com/employee-dashboard/ at any time.
Can I change the language of my employee dashboard?
Currently the employee dashboard is supported in English, with more languages coming soon.
