Engaging with Trade Union Members

From research conducted with trade unions we know that low voter turnout and member engagement are key pain points for trade unions.  Our flexible approach means that we can help, advise and implement engagement strategies independently or in conjunction with dedicated communications teams.

Ballot solutions for the future 

Currently the use of online voting for trade unions isn’t allowed by law. However, should the law change we have a secure online voting platform supports millions of votes each year. Furthermore, it encrypts each and every vote and supports voter verification in the form of one, two or three factors before the system will allow you to vote, offering the client the level of security they are most comfortable with.

In our capacity of one of the country’s leading independent scrutineers, we liaise with leading authorities both in the UK and Europe to gain valuable insight in to how some European countries have successful implemented online voting for trade union elections & ballots.
