joelG got their new app design by running a design contest:
Great UI & UX Design for an Employee Engagement App - looking for long-term relationship :)
Check out joelG's App design contest…
The vision: To create a better workplace for employees. To be the world's best feedback channel between businesses and their employees. The user: Employees. The app's job: Engage employees. Make them feel heard. Make them feel valued. Inform businesses about employee satisfaction, hidden needs and everything else that influences work climate. How it gets the job done: - Employees use the app to fill out surveys - Employees use the app to make suggestions (e.g. flexible working hours, performance reviews, office temperature, etc.) - Anonymous feedback (survey responses or individual suggestions) from employees is then sent to HR (Human Resources) which can then monitor employee well-being and get ideas for improvements (HR analytics dashboard is not part of the app).
First and foremost: You're the expert. We want you to have as much freedom as possible. If you feel constrained by the design guidelines we think our app should follow, we urge you to challenge our assumptions. This being said, to give you a general notion of what we have in mind, we'd like the app UI to be: - modern - minimalist - bright - elegant - not cluttered - very easy to use Colour palette: Green, white and shades of grey :) One more word in terms of UX: UX is as important as UI. The app flows should be painfully simple and require as little cognitive effort as possible. Ideally, there should be no redundant actions so that there is only one way to achieve a desired outcome.
Okay, let's do this. The app has three core features: - A "Weekly Pulse" survey to measure employee satisfaction ("How happy are you at work?"). This one is standardized so all customers have a benchmark for comparison. Users can view the results of the current pulse survey as soon as they participated. Users can also view the results of past pulse surveys. HR managers can contact employees based on their survey responses (anonymity will not be compromised). So 1 survey response / employee -> 1 chat window with HR. - Custom surveys which can be created by HR Managers and pushed to all employees' apps. Custom surveys can be a one-time thing or recurring. HR managers can contact employees based on their survey responses (anonymity will not be compromised). So 1 survey response / employee -> 1 chat window with HR. - Surveys (and the reports to the surveys) can have multiple questions (several graphs per report possible) - A suggestion box, where employees can leave feedback whenever they want. They can choose to post it publicly (so anyone can upvote or comment) or anonymously. HR managers can contact employees based on their suggestion (anonymity will not be compromised). So 1 suggestion / employee -> 1 chat window with HR. REQUIREMENTS: Remember: UI & UX are on a par. We need three screens that encompass most of the app's functionality. Once these are done and a winner has been chosen, the rest of the app will be completed 1:1. We are also looking for a long-term relationship with a freelancer (YOU!) that continues to work on the mobile app (and on the website + web app) :) Screen 1: Home Screen / Dashboard From the home screen users should be able to navigate to all main functions. They should also be able to see if they have yet to complete the weekly pulse survey, which custom surveys are yet to be completed and which are the most popular suggestions (via upvotes) this week. The weekly pulse survey should be perceived as the main element the app revolves around. So upon opening the app, it should take literally no time to determine if a user action (like completing a survey) is needed, to fill out a survey and to send the response. Screen 2 and 3: View past survey responses and suggestions/ View past survey results / View chats associated with responses or suggestions This is the actual challenge. We are looking for a simple and UX-wise effortless way for the user to be able to view her past responses and past survey results (e.g. in a bar chart: employee satisfaction average of 7.8, your response: 10.0). --------------------- EDIT: To clarify this part I listed a couple of user stories. Admittedly, the user stories are not phrased perfectly but we hope it gives a better picture of what is asked for. - As a user I want to quickly access the weekly pulse survey so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time searching for it. - As a user I want to see all uncompleted custom surveys on my home screen so that I quickly see which have yet to be done. - As a user I want to access my suggestion box from my home screen so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time searching for it. - As a user I want to see the currently top upvoted suggestions from colleagues (or myself, in case a suggestion of mine got upvoted) so that I can get an idea of what is important to my colleagues. - As a user I want to navigate to past surveys so that I can see what responses I gave previously and to see a quick report of the overall survey results. - As a user I want to chat with HR Managers that would like feedback to a specific survey I filled out or a suggestion I submitted so that I can elaborate on my response or suggestion. --------------------- Some leading questions: Should both the responses and the suggestions be on one screen or separate ones? Should both the responses and aggregated survey results be on one screen or separate ones? Should the chats be accessible on the past-responses and past suggestions-screen or have a dedicated screen? Which screens are OUTSIDE of the scope of this task: - Suggestion screen (create and send a suggestion) - Profile settings screen - The surveys screens and questions - Basically any screen that is not directly related to the functions described above. First deliverable: - UX-wise smart concept of the user/screen-flow (screen mockups). The main goal here: A monkey should be able to navigate to all core functionalities with ease. You don't have to deliver 3 screens necessarily. If you are able to figure out a way to use 2 instead of 3 screens for above functionality then this might be even better. (we will still be paying 3 screens of course) - Home screen with "polished" design (more than raw mockups to give a general sense of the design direction so that we can iterate quickly in the next round) We look forward to working with you :)
What to avoid
Let us formulate this positively: We want you to play around with user flows to figure out how to best spread the above-mentioned functionalities over a few screens (UX >> everything else).

And then… they selected a winner!
Alex was very dedicated and diligent right from the start. He was able to grasp the idea behind the app immediately. What made him stand out amongst all the other contestants was his high quality work, frequent communication and iterations as well as his out of the box thinking. Highly recommended!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
