Feedback from your employees can surface many issues. Some are more sensitive than others, and require immediate attention.

Sensitive comments

Employee comments provide additional context to your data, and allow you to better understand the daily experience of employees in your organisation.

Our Highlighted Comments feature surfaces employee feedback that may contain useful ideas and suggestions. This can inspire leaders to react to issues and take action.

We developed Sensitive Comments to ensure that people leaders are immediately notified of any critical feedback. Instances of misconduct need to be addressed immediately, and by the right people.

How Sensitive Comments works


Our algorithms automatically detect any critical feedback left by your employees in 50+ languages. Sensitive comments are classified under four categories: violent criminal behavior, objectionable behavior, integrity and ethics, and safety and wellbeing.


We immediately notify the right people in your organisation. Real-time email and in-app alerts raise the most serious issues instantly.


Sensitive issues need to be addressed carefully. @mentions allow managers, HR and leadership to collaborate and respond to critical issues in the correct manner.

“A safe workplace is not just a prerequisite to employee engagement - it’s an ethical obligation that employers have to their employees”

Phil Chambers, CEO & Co-founder, Peakon
