Why Tandem

Why Tandem

We understand the complexities of global enterprise and that Tandem needs to sit as part of an eco system. That’s why we ensure that Tandem naturally sits in the flow of your work, integrating with core HR systems, Outlook, Slack and many other tools that may be used as part of your wider eco system.

Our history lies in specializing in the area of behavioral change and which has influenced not only the design of our product but also our unique change management approach. We know that technology in isolation cannot truly drive the level of behavioral change required for an inspiring  feedback culture at a global level. That’s why we’ve designed the ‘Tandem Way’, an adoption methodology that will enable and sustain the behavioral change required.

Coming from the world of HR, we understand the many competing priorities that demand your time. That’s why we’ve made the onboarding program an easy means of getting you started with your feedback culture today and navigating you through each stage of the journey. We’ve met a lot of clients who were concerned they weren’t ready but that’s our job, to get you ready, no matter what your starting point is!

Tandem has already won the most innovative future of work product at the HR Technology Congress in Paris. Our clients will tell you why!
