EPIC (Employee Perceived Image of the Company)

EPIC

EPIC, Employee Perceived Image of the Company®, is a cloud-based software solution that provides a unique employee experience using true 360˚ employee surveys.

At first glance, EPIC is a survey and feedback software.

Like other employee engagement solutions, EPIC allows team members to evaluate the company on a multitude of metrics.

And then we “crank it up to eleven”…

Unlike any other software, with EPIC each team member has their own personal page that allows them to evaluate their co-workers and receive and provide feedback like never before.

EPIC is an interactive, dynamic and fun system that gives the employee an invaluable, in-depth analysis of themselves based on how they are perceived by their co-workers.

Now employees will know if they are helping build a constructive environment within their group, or if they need to work on some particular area to become a more emotionally intelligent person. This, in turn, generates a higher level of engagement, productivity, and happiness all around.

On the Personal Statistics page, each and every participant in our weekly surveys knows how they are perceived in 7 different areas that give them a clear perspective of where they excel and where they need to focus their attention in order to improve and GROW.

HOW EPIC WORKS

epic on laptop participation

Every week EPIC asks 7 professionally designed, close-ended questions, plus you can add 3 optional custom questions that you can easily create to fit your company’s needs and culture

The surveys are 100% anonymous. Users know what their co-workers are saying about them but NEVER who is saying it. This allows all team members to really express what is on their mind without fear of any retribution.

Our surveys gather data, not only about your company, but also about each employee, allowing you to see powerful individual analysis on how your team members perceive each other within the organization.

Every team member has access to their own scores and can easily track their progress.

EPIC automatically lets users know if they need to pay attention to a particular area and assists them with tools to improve. Our SOS (Simple Objective Solutions) in the form of learning materials (videos and PDFs) provide help to employees on their journey of self-improvement.

With EPIC, every employee can give feedback, recognition and rewards to anyone in the organization. We created an organic, dynamic and fun way for people to interact with each other within the company. Employees can easily celebrate the success of others.

And with the EPIC Store, we reward the participation of your team members through a self-managed prize store that fits every budget and organizational needs.

With EPIC, you can easily see the overall mood of your business by knowing how happy people are and how they perceive their organization’s climate. Follow the daily trend lines of your team members’ moods in these two areas, and you can easily assess if the actions you are taking are having the desired effects.

To really understand any situation, you need more than one side of the story. Each of our weekly questions is measured from 3 different viewpoints in what we call the EPIC Trifocal Analysis, which gives you 3 ways of looking at each question and issue.

EPIC TRIFOCAL ANALYSIS

Trifocal Perspective

You cannot change what you don't know, right?

There's an ancient parable called "The Blind Men and the Elephant" in which a group of blind men, who have never come across an elephant learn what the elephant is like by touching it.

Each blind man feels a different part of the elephant body, but only one part, such as the tail or the tusk.

They then describe the elephant based on their partial experience and their descriptions are in complete disagreement on what an elephant is.  

To really understand a situation, you need more than one side of the story. Each of our weekly questions is measured from 3 different viewpoints.

Frequently Asked Questions

When we designed EPIC we wanted to create a system that we, ourselves, would like to use. It had to have several characteristics that we simply could not find in a single program out there, se we developed our own:

  1. Weekly employee surveys – which create a habit of growth
  2. Preset and Custom Questions – which give you more options to gather the right information
  3. Gamified – which keeps team members excited
  4. 360˚ surveys – which help everyone grow
  5. Personal questions – which give tons of value to everyone in your company
  6. Real time data – which is just plain awesome
  7. 100% anonymous surveys – which makes is safe
  8. Fun to use – which is the opposite of boring

On the contrary! Because each week the employee survey questions are different AND because the questions are about people they work with*, team members look forward to answering the surveys.

Besides, by making the system weekly, there’s a feeling of constant growth and improvement that permeates the whole corporate culture.

Yes! 100% anonymous. We only reveal the scores of a dimension after a certain number of answers have been accumulated, thus not allowing for users to guess who scored them. People know “what” was said but not“who” said it.

Each micro survey is only 7 to 10 questions long and users don’t need to write anything. So all it takes is between 2 and 5 minutes.

Absolutely! EPIC™ is fully responsive and designed to be used on the go. Just don’t use it while driving.

In simple terms:

We do 99% of the work and you do the other 1%.
Depending on the version you sign up for, we work closely with you to set the system up in a way that runs pretty much automatically.
 
All you have to do is upload your employee database and we take care of the rest.
Once EPIC™ is up and running we will help you set up the prize store which you will be able to manage with minimum time and effort.

Because we have clients all over the world, we have found that, the easiest way to manage the store is by providing our customers with a pre-loaded catalog of generic prizes.

However, you have complete freedom to add, remove, edit, activate or deactivate your own prizes. We even provide you with a great calculator tool that allows you to set the value of the points earned throughout EPIC™ to meet your own budget.
 
This way, if you have a big budget, you can select more expensive prizes. However, we also provide you with some great prize ideas that are very effective in motivating your staff, yet cost your company almost nothing!

No.

Really… it’s not.
 
As powerful as it is, EPIC™ is not a magic wand that will fill your business with rainbows and unicorns.
 
EPIC™ works best for companies that are already working consciously toward improving their organizational climate.
 
We help you measure and pinpoint areas of opportunity, but you have to be willing to take action with the results that we uncover.

No.

EPIC is 100% bilingual

All our questions, videos, PDF’s and customer service are in English and Spanish
