Thymometrics – A Sonnet

We have some news which could transform your life
If you now survey staff but once a year
Such questionnaires are bound to cause you strife
Whene’er that season once again draws near

Fear not, for we’ve been drawn to innovate
And so we had a wonderful idea
We’ve dispensed with all that pain you hate
The Thymometrics way’s a panacea

The annual staff survey is now dead
For our engagement survey’s always on
And all analyses are fresh, instead
Of growing stale as the year drags on

Your staff will benefit, because their views
Can be expressed, and changed, to suit their mood
With comments made whenever they so choose
So your purview is constantly renewed.

These new, exciting features are so rare
That only Thymometrics can provide
This service; our competitors despair
For this is something they have never tried.

So why should you believe our wond’rous claims?
You’ll surely not have heard of us before
But we assure you, we’re not playing games
All these good things are real, and there’s more

To see is to believe, and so we need
To show you what our Thymo can achieve
If you’d but get in touch, we can proceed
To demo it, then you too will believe.

We urge you to take note of all we’ve said
For Thymometrics is the way ahead!

Hugh Tonks, 2013.
