Are you nosy about the sentiment in your company? 👃Scenty helps you sniff out the sentiment of your conversations.
How to sniff out the sentiment of your company culture

Have you ever caught a whiff of toxic culture in a conversation at work, but then brushed it off because your co-worker’s probably just having a bad day? Toxic workplace culture is a killer when it comes to employee engagement, and you could argue that the words spoken at work define the culture.

Think about it: you get verbal recognition, verbal warnings, and gossip at work. These conversations make or break employee relationships with one another and the company, and have a huge impact on employee experience. Words are powerful.

We’ve just launched a tool called 👃Scenty that can help you gauge the sentiment in your company by analysing text.

What must I do with these insights?

Now that you’ve checked the general sentiment of your conversations (emails, social posts, messages, reviews, etc.), you may need to take some next steps. 

You may, for instance, have found out that a client is unhappy with your service because they feel threatened and abused by one of your employees. The obvious next step is to address the behaviours which were highlighted by 👃Scenty with this employee.

Another scenario could be that, gauging from input from co-workers on a quarterly review, you see that an employee is a shining example for customer success. Problem is they’re stuck in a department that’s holding them back. Now you can move them to another area or department where they can flourish!


There are many uses of 👃Scenty (that we haven’t discovered yet!) to help you sniff out sentiment. It’s free and super easy to get started and use on a continual basis.
