We’ve worked hard alongside employees and system admins to get a balance with the way we manage anonymity.
Our system is fully anonymous, and only the employee will ever be able to reveal their own identity.
Our stance on anonymity protects employees using the system, and creates an environment of trust and respect that ultimately ensures that the system is used to its full potential, and that messages and feedback are open, honest and detailed.
Further details on anonymity by feature:
Messages – Fully Anonymous
If an administrator of the system is concerned about a message an employee has sent, they may request to reveal the employees’ identity. The power to respond to this request remains with the employee and they choose whether to approve or decline the request.
Pulse Surveys – Fully Anonymous
Admins can segment responses by data such as teams and locations. We also restrict segmentation of the results to a minimum number of 5 responses to ensure anonymity is maintained even during data processing. We also do not display any pulse survey data until a minimum of five responses have been received. Again, we feel this is the best way to maintain the anonymity of employees.
Resource Hub – Feedback and Questions – Fully Anonymous
Similar to pulse surveys, admins can segment feedback by teams, locations etc. however there are limitations to how small segments can go (see above for further details).
Shout-outs – Confidential
Shout-outs is the only feature within Stribe where names can be displayed. However, privacy always remains in the employees control, and shout-outs can be sent confidentially should they wish. What do we mean by this? The sender and receiver can choose whether or not to display their shout-out on the organisation’s shout-out wall. Admins on the system have an overview of all shout-outs sent, and can delete any should there be a need to.
If you have any questions, comments or feedback about our anonymity then you can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
*We will not tolerate any illegal or abusive comments on the system, this includes those threatening abuse, discrimination, harassment, violence or other criminal offences.
If a system admin contacts us and notifies us that they have received a message that requires us to reveal the sender’s identity then we will review the message and work with the organisation to reveal the user should there be a case for it.
