Ripple improves employee self-awareness by enabling anonymous, authentic and timely feedback from co-workers.

Start ripples of open, honest feedback in your teams today.

Ripple is a platform for providing quick, anonymous team member evaluations. By rating colleagues based on the Big 5 Personality Traits, Ripple turns objective feedback into actionable information.


Ripple makes it easy to obtain feedback from others in your organization.

One Crew member invites several of their colleagues to join and shortly after hundreds of Crew members are anonymously sharing their perceptions of each other.

Each respondent completes Reflection Surveys™ consisting of 5 short questions from any device on the web It's quick (20 seconds or less) and easy (just be honest).


Respondents then request feedback from their colleagues. The result is a constant feedback loop across the network.


Ripple equips each Crew member with a dashboard outlining personal and professional development.

The Dashboard is where you see your Ripple Effect Score™, any outstanding surveys for completion and notes from the Ripple Crew team.


Ripple gives individuals the ability to quickly give and receive feedback. Artificial review cycles are replaced with timely analysis that better illustrates worker performance.

With decades of combined experience, every member of the Ripple team has witnessed, first hand, the short-comings of traditional employee evaluation processes. We have all come together to make sure employees everywhere can give and receive anonymous, honest and actionable feedback.
