How to Leverage Collective Intelligence Models in Your Organisation

Updated: Jul 1

We've also held a webinar on this topic, which you can find here.


Nowadays, businesses increasingly recognise the value of employees who collaborate and think collectively. By creating a culture where people think from an organisational perspective rather than from their individual roles, companies can reap many benefits. Active employees show greater engagement, collaboration, and commitment to the company's goals. They bring new ideas, perspectives, and a sense of responsibility, which leads to better teamwork, problem-solving, and an enhancement of the company's overall performance. This is crucial because today, companies do not succeed through having the best machinery or the largest number of employees, but by possessing the best knowledge and expertise.

Leveraging Collective Intelligence Models

Collective intelligence utilises the knowledge and experience of a group of people to tackle complex challenges and make effective decisions. By leveraging the Collective Intelligence and diverse perspectives of employees, a company can foster a culture where creativity, innovation, and improved outcomes are possible. Applying collective intelligence allows businesses to make more informed and comprehensive decisions, leading to greater competitiveness and adaptability. One method of gathering this knowledge is through surveys.


Employee Satisfaction Surveys

Unfortunately, although widely used, employee satisfaction surveys can unintentionally reinforce a passive and individual way of thinking. These surveys often focus solely on individual satisfaction and do not account for the possibilities of collaboration and joint problem-solving. In these surveys, employees provide answers, but management makes decisions based on this feedback. There is no collaboration between employees and insufficient interaction between staff and management. As a result, employees do not play an active role in the company's development and continue to focus on individual interests. This can hinder innovation and prevent employees from advancing the organisation.


To transition to an active and collaborative way of thinking, companies can implement strategies such as:


  1. Encouraging a culture of collaboration and shared goals, focusing on teamwork, knowledge sharing, and collective objectives.

  2. Embracing joint problem-solving and participatory decision-making, where employees are involved in strategic planning, problem-solving, and innovation, utilising their diverse perspectives and expertise.

  3. Utilising technology that enables employees to actively participate and continuously engage with achieving the organisation's goals. Look for a platform that allows employees to regularly provide feedback, gain a clear view of the company's performance, and collaborate with other staff and managers to improve the business.


To succeed in today's era, companies need employees who are active, collaborative, and engaged, with a shift from individual to collective approaches. By using technology, such as the Deepler platform, companies can streamline communication, promote collaboration, and facilitate effective knowledge sharing within the business. In conclusion, find a tool that helps shift employees from a passive and individual mindset to an active and collective one.
