Motivated employees care, make better decisions, collaborate and innovate.

Measure the things that matter for team motivation, engagement, collaboration and performance.

Peoplepie solves the problem of employee surveys that give results without answers. We put motivating insights and action solutions directly into the hands of managers. 


"A great tool - visual and descriptive displays - clear and concise reports" 

Wayne Collins, GM Firequip

Peoplepie surveys are used to understand team dynamics, improve motivation, signal to employees they matter, provide a foundation for better performance conversations and show where and how to act and invest in your people.

Because we understand motivation, we know what it takes to motivate employees. Peoplepie surveys measure both sides of employee engagement; motivation and the employer ecosystem. More than 20 years of research and consulting have gone into building our surveys, insights and solution recommendations, so our reports deliver real value - for managers.

What is different about Peoplepie?

How we measure motivation

Human motivation occurs when our intrinsic needs for affiliation (connection), achievement (competence) and actualisation (creativity) are met. An easy way to think about this is 'We, Me and It'. This 'tripartite model' of motivation is core in Peoplepie surveys and is how we know which dimensions at work actually matter for engagement.   

occupation versions

Peoplepie has surveys for different occupations.  Employees, Salespeople, Volunteers and Service delivery teams. This is because we understand that people in different occupations are motivated differently.   

How we operate

Online and at arms length. Managers who care about their people don't have time for consultants and know what to do if they are given the right information. Use Peoplepie surveys whenever you want to. 

how you pay

Pay as you go for what you use. No subscriptions. No contracts. Just a per employee charge each time you survey. For little more than the price of a fancy dinner you receive deep insight into your team and data you can use.

being the FIRST OF our KIND

Peoplepie is designed and built for people managers.  Not for corporations or Human Resource Departments.  It is for those who lead and manage others, and who care enough to want to ensure their teams are motivated and engaged.

Motivated people are good for business.

Motivation is the most important component of engagement.

Engagement occurs when motivated employees care about their work, employers care about their people and there is a mutually beneficial relationship of exchange. Research has proven engagement is one key predictor of business success. 

On a personal level you know this makes sense.  When you are motivated and engaged you put in more than just effort - you care, use your energy, initiative, imagination, intelligence and skills. This is what researchers mean by 'discretionary' effort - the discretionary bit is the place where the magic happens.

Motivated employees perform 5% to 20% better than their peers.

Imagine what even a 5% performance improvement might mean for you.

With 20 people 5% improvement is like having one more person working with you, for free.

In a business with $1 million annual revenue an extra 5% equates to $ 50,000 additional revenue.

A great tool and we will definitely look to re-survey to see how we are tracking on identified actions from the first survey.

Peoplepie exceeded my expectations of the value of information provided. We couldn’t have achieved such an analysis on our own - it would have taken longer, been less accurate and cost a lot more.
