about us

Helping businesses better understand the issues leading to employee turnover.

In an ever-changing economy where workers are consistently presented with new opportunities, organizations must vigorously defend against losing their highly talented workers. While companies are challenged with retaining proficient employees, they also must recruit replacements for workers who are let go or move on and the industry costs included with turnover share a common theme: it is expensive to replace people.

The Labor Lion service provides customers with an anonymous channel for employees to submit feedback by sending a weekly single-question confidential survey. These weekly results generate truthful and meaningful responses from employees and provides organizations with real-time data on the current climate of their organization as well as problem areas within the company and opportunities for improvement or retention. Labor Lion’s vision is to work with its customers to understand their workforce, create opportunities for change, and eliminate preventable turnover. The anonymous channel provided by our service is the most complete way to achieve these goals.

Our mission is to empower the workforce, assist in creating positive organizational change, and initiate cost savings through employee retention improvement. 

  • Anonymity generates authenticity
  • Simplicity creates reliability
  • Honesty fosters opportunity
  • Retention produces cost-savings
