ThoughtFarmer empowers your team to be more informed and connected to their work, the organization, and to each other. As a powerful Simpplr alternative, ThoughtFarmer goes beyond simple collaboration to build real connection and efficiency into every day.

The ThoughtFarmer impact

Build a digital workplace with genuine engagement

Why is engagement so important? It’s the antidote to “quiet quitting” — the employees who do their jobs, but aren’t actively involved in the company or don’t plan to stick around. It’s not a Gen Z trend, either: According to Gallup, 77% of employees are classified as “not engaged” with 59% being “quiet quitters.”

Collaboration is the key to building engagement. Your employees want to work effectively together: 75% say collaboration is very important but 39% of people say their organization doesn’t make it happen enough.

Work more efficiently now while also nurturing and retaining your employees for long-term success with feedback polls, group discussions, a filterable employee directory, and customizable project organization.


Employee engagement and company-wide communication have improved drastically.”
