What is the Hush App all about?
Hush is an app for your workplace. We want to facilitate open conversations between professionals in the same company or with others in the industry. The idea is to create a place where relevant topics can be discussed without any fear of retribution.
It is also a tool for the executive team to get a pulse of their employees on a daily basis and not wait for a quarterly / half yearly survey. Unlike the typical employee surveys here the questions / discussions are initiated by employees so be prepared to see some uncomfortable questions and responses.
Is Hush really anonymous?
Yes we want to facilitate open discussions and that’s why we don’t ever send you any emails to your work email or capture your real name anywhere. It is our biggest priority to ensure that you can always use the app anonymously.
Simple verification based on Wi-Fi : If your company allows you to use Wi-Fi on your mobile devices then we have a very simple verification. You need to be connected to your office Wi-Fi when you want access to your company discussion board on Hush. This is just one time. We use this to verify that you are a employee of that company without ever needing to send you an email
Company Email based verification : We authenticate you by sending a one time code to your office email. We don’t store your email id so there is no way to tie your activity on the app to your email.
LinkedIn based verification : We let you authenticate via LinkedIn by making your company email as the primary email on LinkedIn. We don’t send any verification email to you if you use this option as the email is sent by LinkedIn when you change your primary account there. We use your primary email address on LinkedIn to verify on the fly and don’t store it so there is no way to tie your activity on the app to your email.
Why do I have to verify with LinkedIn / Email?
You need to verify with LinkedIn / Email only if your company does not provide Wi-Fi access on mobile. Otherwise you just need to connect to your corporate Wi-Fi once for us to verify you work there.
How do you take care of bullying / racism etc. ?
This is something we take very seriously. Any content which is flagged multiple times is removed. People who keep posting content that is objectionable are removed from the platform. Hush is a completely anonymous forum but now we are also moving towards using a mix of community based moderation and Machine Learning to ensure this cannot become a forum for bullying / harassment
Can I delete my posts or comments?
Yes. Once you delete something it is lost forever and cannot be recovered
Is there any feature for HR / Leadership team?
Yes. We can provide your overall sentiment analysis and trends around what your employees are thinking. We can’t provide you any individual user level data but only aggregate trends and analysis.
