A LITTLE ABOUT US
We want people to live their best lives.
We believe people grow more when in teams.
We believe great teams are built on constructive feedback. At work. At home.
And so we’ve developed a beautiful online platform that uses psychology + design + technology to make it easier and more enjoyable to give and receive feedback, manage goals, manage check-ins and personal development plans.
We have a laser-like focus on best-practice UX and best-practice UI in order to turn a previously uncomfortable and confusing HR-led process into a delightful and rewarding personal experience.
We’re growing rapidly with clients across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific and an incredibly exciting pipeline of innovation ahead of us!
We have a small team of 10 “Howmies”: Our experience spans across J.P. Morgan, Google, Goldman Sachs, Just Eat, Deliveroo, Quiqup, Gett, Lloyds, the UN, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and Tesco.com just to name a few.
