The Human axis allows you to measure team morale according to 5 angles thanks to daily surveys sent via Slack or Microsoft Teams.
Check out this help article to learn more about these categories.
The concept is very simple. We send out one thematic question daily, answered by selecting the appropriate value on a scale of 1 to 5. This allows your team members to stay in action and share how they feel with one click.
Once your Human axis integration is added, and your team members are linked to the project, daily questions will be sent out on the afternoon of the setup day. For example, if you do either setup after 3 pm, the first question will be sent out the following afternoon. You will see the anonymized survey responses as soon as the data is received.
The Axify bot will send the daily question to team members privately. Here's what the questions will look like.
Over time, the answers to the questions will be compiled, and the results will be presented in graphical form. By default, the global overview will be displayed. You will find the 5 categories evaluated in the tabs above the graph.
For each category, the tab will display
- The normalized score out of 10
- The variation indicator of the current period for the evaluated angle
If we take the graph below as an example, the stress indicator shows a variation of 6% for the last 3 months compared to the previous 3 months. This variation indicator works similarly for the metrics presented in the Process and Technical axes. We invite you to consult this help article to learn more.
For each category, the participation rate and a sentence introducing the evaluated category will be available.
Then, the graph presenting the average weekly score will allow you to evaluate your team's morale variations over time.
Psst! Consider comparing this data with some metrics from the Process or Technical axes for more context or pairing it with other categories! For example, a higher stress level combined with a strong sense of motivation and alignment and an increase in deployment frequency may indicate positive stress! On the other hand, a high level of stress combined with an increased work in progress (WIP) and an augmentation of time invested on bugs can be considered negative stress.
When the survey is sent out, the categories are alternated so that the questions are sent out randomly. This way, questions are not repeated in the same cycle, which takes about 2 weeks to complete.
You can view the questions in each category by accessing the section below the response graph.
And if needed, you can get more information on the distribution of answers by clicking on the bubble provided for this purpose (located to the right of the "Questions asked" section).
