It’s almost impossible to predict and prevent workforce issues – until now. Humaxa’s anonymous AI Assistant encourages employees to open up and share authentic feedback. For employees, it offers immediate solutions, right in the flow of work. For employers, it acts as an “early warning system” that prevents workforce issues from ever becoming issues in the first place.
