« Listen Léon is an informal and very efficient way to make sure people work together in a respectful way, showing gratitude. »

"Listen Léon is THE post covid HR startup."

Edwin Liard
Central Union Delegate, Force Ouvriere

"Listen Léon is a great tool for building trust and commitment in teams."

Organizations are struggling to foster employee engagement, talent retention and initiative spirit.

The observation of what does not work

"We can't solve problems with the same thinking and tools that created them."

Pure evaluation and measuring tools

Can easily be "gamed" once people understand the underlying rules.

Competitive behaviors driven by public recognition and material rewards

Behavior is driven by the desire to have more or better than the other. It doesn't foster engagement or feeling of belonging.

Non-inclusive solutions: top-down, popularity

Recognition is sought rather than received: it doesn't feel sincere nor reflect intrinsic skills.

Exclusive focus on short-term objectives

Discourages long-term commitment to mission, team, and company.

What studies say

7 out of 10 employees
do not feel recognized at work

Deloitte & Cadremploi 2015 Study

Lack of recognition increases the
risk of illness x3 and doubles the depressive state
among employees

Etude DARES (Ministry of Labour) January 2016

Only 18% of employees prefer recognition to be public and broad, shared by all.

Wonderful initiative! Favourite

Thank you for this wonderful idea that does so much good for oneself and others. Everything is extremely well thought out and thoughtful. Anonymity allows me to transmit authentic messages, no strings attached, to release this positive word. Since the beginning of our use in the team, I have noticed an openness of the team, and a trust in the team allowing everyone to speak even more freely. Léon is a trigger for free discussions in companies. Thank you!

By revealing and freeing up these individuals’ strengths, they can scale positive impact and create more meaningful societies.

Interview with Jacques Forest, Full research Professor at UQAM, Organizational Psychologist, Certified Human Resources Advisor (CHRP).

Impact measured by research

Researchers at UQAM (Québec Université in Montréal), study our deployments to measure the impact of Listen Léon on mental health.

And Léon's measure of impact is :

Discovered strengths

Thus so much awareness and recognition for our dear users, the léon givers.

Generated Muditā

* Muditā is the direct measure of the impact we had on others through our gifts. In short, the hours of joy we have generated through our compliments!

The compliments : our unique recipe

Léon's laws reinforce intrinsic motivation: the only recipe for sustainable change in organizations.

Consistency

140 characters minimum. Really positive thanks to filters and semantic analysis. Concrete thanks to the matching of the activating strengths.

Virality

Activates our innate potential for kindness, empathy and altruism. It works: 45% of our users have been pollinated!

Anonymity

The guarantee of a sincere, free and genuine compliment. Preserves modesty. Allows you to focus on the content of the message and not on the sender to activate his strengths. Allows you not to feel indebted. Develops pure altruism.

Time-delayed

For a real surprise gift. Asynchronous. Avoids dependency on current communication tools and immediacy. Erases the notion of debt.

 

Your Frequently Asked Questions

Why anonymity?

The guarantee of a sincere, free and genuine compliment. Preserves modesty. Allows you to focus on the content of the message and not on the sender to activate his strengths. Allows you not to feel indebted. Develops pure altruism.

Where is my data stored?

Our goal is to remain as transparent as possible to our users.

We are very concerned about the processing of the data we carry out and we take great care to ensure that it is the property of each and every one of them.

Our servers are located on the outskirts of Paris at Scaleway, a subsidiary of the Illiad Group. All data is hosted exclusively in France.

We maintain a register in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and an audit is underway to validate our process regarding these regulations.

Is my profile visible to my manager or HR?

No. Your user profile is visible only to you.

Also, at Léon, transparency is key;there are no hidden data or KPIs. Even administrator views and team settings are visible to everyone.

Can I send a negative message?

Clearly : NO!

We have implemented three levels of security to prevent negative content from passing through the platform: 
  • The first level is a filter of blacklisted forbidden words: we obviously forbid any insults but also words like tie or skirt, the idea here is not to make a compliment on that nice dress for example 🙂 
  • The second level is the analysis of the feeling of the sentence. We use Artificial Intelligence technologies to analyze the semantics of a message. If the message is detected as negative, it cannot be sent as it is. The user is then informed that they have to make modifications so that the Léon can be transmitted to its recipient. 
  • If Léon hesitates about the content of a message, it is forwarded to our development team for analysis. 
  • If an inappropriate message slips through the cracks, a reporting feature is available.

I would like to write a Léon, but I can't find the right words, what do I do?

Don't panic, Léon has thought of a new feature just for you!

It's called "Léon, lend me your pen" and it helps to ease off the famous fear of the blank page!

Thus, several random exercises will enable you to build up your gratitude so that you can write your own Léon later on.

Anyway... why "Léon" ?

Since the launch of the Listen Léon adventure, our muse Léon le Paon has been arousing curiosity and raising questions.
