I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Jaakko Kaikuluoma, Co-Founder & CEO of Teamspective, a SaaS solution helping people, teams, and companies improve their performance through better feedback.
Jaakko’s professional background is in strategic management and international software business. He studied industrial engineering and management at Aalto University, Finland.
After a decade in software sales, marketing, and managerial positions in startups, Jaakko decided to combine his expertise with his passion for “the human mind and how it works in social settings” and started his own company, Teamspective.
Teamspective helps companies collect people’s insights continuously with modern methods that are non-disruptive to employees. With these real-time insights, companies react faster, support employees when they need it, monitor the impact of improvement initiatives, and overall establish a culture of growth mindset.
Automate your HR data collection. Measure engagement, well-being, and DEI right in Slack or MS Teams. Create a culture of listening and empower teams to improve with data-driven discussions.
Organizational Network Analysis:
Get an accurate map of how your people actually work together, and see how integrated your organization is. Identify key employees and understand their impact. Improve cross-functional collaboration, and help high-demand people delegate effectively. Analyse the True Teams, combine them to pulse data, and see where your company’s real pain points are.
Smart 360 Feedback:
Make feedback your superpower. Ensure everyone gets a continuous flow of quality feedback and recognition from managers, peers, and even customers. Make data-based decisions in performance management.
In a wide-ranging discussion, Jaakko and I talked about:
- How Teamspective helps companies identify and solve issues related to teamwork, leadership, and coordination.
- The Pulse Surveys are integrated with Slack and Teams.
- How Teamspective automates feedback interactions and turns to network analysis to gather information.
- Data can spot disengagement and withdrawal from interactions and lack of collaboration between departments.
- Teamspective is using only publicly available metadata.
- The company is growing its business by using sales, online marketing, and partnering with HR consultants.
- And much more.
