How to keep your employees happy and motivated is a crucial quest for all entrepreneurs and TinyPulse is a perfect answer to it. This app takes care of your employee engagement and recognition in a simple, no-fuss manner. It sends out one-question surveys to the employees every week. The survey, which comcerns with jobs satisfaction, comes out with a new question each week. TinyPulse then shares the results with the company and the employees.

The employer doesn’t need to be worried about the process. Also, at the end of each survey, employees are supposed to mention their co-workers, who they think excelled that week, either openly or anonymously. The app makes the boss’s job a lot easier by instilling a positive atmosphere at the workplace. With the attrition rates hitting the roof, this is one app entrepreneurs might want to hang on to.
