Accessibility is key at Zest. With a focus on collective success, discover how we improved design to get the whole team on board and to help every user reach their full potential.

Simpler navigation

Easier pillar differentiation

The 360º span of our offer is definitely one of our key strengths. In addition to listening to employees, our solution enables managers to engage, motivate and measure the performance of their teams. But such breadth can sometimes be confusing for users. To fix this, we’ve grouped features together into three main pillars, and redesigned the main menu to reflect this.

The green Listen pillar includes the following features:

The blue Perform pillar includes

The purple Share pillar includes:


No more “hidden” features
We also made it easier access to some key features for employees, managers and super admin:
  • Objectives and Skills are now directly available in the main menu, instead of inside Check-ins. You’re now just one click away from success
  • Results of two of our flagship features Engagement Meter and Key Drivers are now accessible from the main menu on the homepage! For managers, there’s now no need to access the back office for these.
  • The Company Message (feature available only for super admins) is available from the main menu.
An updated back-office

Featuring a new colour scheme, the back-office now boasts a darker background, making it will easier to distinguish between admin territory and the home page

To make things more visual, we organized  back-office features in three categories: 

  • Dashboards, which encompass the Moodboard, Top Contributors and Company Activity

  • Employee Management, including:

  • Application settings:



Logo integration

We know your brand is important to you and your employees, which is why you can now integrate your logo in Zest. We have a common goal: encouraging users to connect to, and use, Zest. By showing your logo, employees will identify themselves with Zest’s solution, increasing adoption and participation rates.

Your logo will appear in the top left of the Home Page, where everyone in your organisation can see it.

An easier way to explore results

Zest is a powerful solution enabling managers to listen to, engage and improve employee performance through actionable data. Zest makes it easy for you to analyse such data via the Survey feature in Public mode. You can now access the details of your teams’ answers and carry out analysis directly in the solution interface! In the example below, you can estimate that 30% of employees put a score of less than six (without exporting and trolling through excel).

In an effort to include everyone involved, and to encourage clear communicate, all employees with access to the results (determined by your chosen settings) will be emailed at the end of the survey.

We understand it’s important that every user can access their own data, therefore collaborators can view their given answers for every survey at any time. 

Anonymity for everyone

Anonymity is a sensitive subject on which employees’ trust depends. That’s why the possibility of anonymity is built in all of our features, especially those related to listening.

To enable you to tailor Zest precisely to your business needs, there is now an ‘Anonymity threshold’ which aims to protect user privacy when launching Surveys, Key Drivers and Engagement Meters in “open” mode.

Eight new survey templates

Carrying out surveys is a great way to encourage opinions and improve engagement levels of your team. Zest’s Survey feature is highly versatile, enabling you to create many types of surveys to fit your HR and business needs. Need ideas for your new surveys?
