Why - Engaging the crowd in to-the-point Dialogues

    Win Hearts

Engage your people by allowing them to participate in key matters. CouncilWise helps you initiate and process dialogues consisting of 1 open question, 1 voting round, and 1 report. That’s it. Win people’s hearts, they will appreciate you for trusting them.

   Get Wiser

Two know more than one. The more brains you get involved, the more superior the outcome. The wisdom of the crowds beats anything else. Your people are the true eyes and ears of the organization and will share their wisdom with you.

Make Impact

CouncilWise saves costs of employee participation, while enabling organizations to make more impact. Decisionmaking is finally including the collective opinion, which is a guarantee for more success during any followup analysis, negotiation or implementation.


One Open Question

Formulate one open question to start a new Dialogue or use the ones on our website. We will guide you then through the process to specify details and generate a link to use in your invitation to people. You may also invite people directly via their email addresses. Respondents answer your open question in 200 characters, and may be inspired by (anonymous) opinions that others already submitted. After submitting they’re thanked. That’s it.

One Vote

Upon reaching the deadline you’ve set, respondents are asked to vote for their 3 favorits, based on a evenly distributed set of 15 given answers. Respondents may view more if they want. Votes are aggregated and respondents are asked why they’ve voted on these specific 3. This helps them think harder and share that with you. 

One Report

Respondents get via email the top 5 voted suggestions. You will receive the extended report via an email alert and link to your dashboard. We will provide extended data to view how successful your Dialogue has been, a longer list of given and highly voted-for answers and the names of the corresponding respondents. You will learn more about ‘hidden talents’ than any talentmanagement program ever did before! Contact us for a branded, multi-user account!


CouncilWise is founded in 2014 by Maurik Dippel and Danny Gorter. CouncilWise enables decisionmakers, organizations, councils, unions and other entities that must or want to involve employees, clients and/or stakeholders, to do this in a powerful, disciplined, cost-efficient way. We’ve been supported and inspired by great minds to startup this new company and are committed to make employee participation a success. Follow us on twitter @CouncilWise for suggestion questions to use for new Dialogues with your people, news on employee participation, and of course upcoming job openings.

We’re located in The Hague (The Netherlands, that’s in Europe), almost as close to the beach to taste the salty water and feel the wind and waves moving our surf board (if we have time).
