How is Winningtemp anonymous?

Anonymity is crucial for Winningtemp and you can always trust that no one can see how you answered the temperature questions. 

The anonymity level is something that your system administrator configured, we recommend having a high anonymity level. If your company has anonymity level 5, it means you need to have a minimum of 5 unique responders in your group to show any temperature in your group at all. 

This means, that if your group has a lesser number of users than the anonymity level, you will never see your temperature, but your answers will always contribute to the total temperature (organisational) anyway.

This also applies to the temperature regarding Gender, Age, and Answer per question. You need to have a minimum of 5 men AND 5 women to show temperature, for example.

If you write a comment to a question, your manager and the system administrator can read it, but they can't see who wrote it. Winningtemp has a function that allows managers to answer comments and ask further questions. However, this chat is totally anonymous, and your manager will never see who they are chatting with. 


Onboarding or offboarding surveys

To protect user anonymity, we present the onboarding and offboarding results in batches based on the anonymity threshold. In other words, if the anonymity threshold is set to five, we present the temperature in batches of five. Even if the category already displays temperature, you will have to wait until you have five new answers before the new results are visible. All answers in the batch will have the same date to further maintain anonymity. 

When can I see the results on a group level?

  • When the anonymity threshold is met within the same group. In this example, if five users in the same group answered the survey, you can see the results on a group level.

Will the results be visible at an organisational level?

  • If the anonymity threshold is met, but with users in different groups, the results will be visible on an organisational level instead. The same logic applies here, the results are presented in batches.
