The best project, which won a €2,000 prize for its team members, went to the Feedbacker Forum team.

You can read more about the project from the open source github repository.

The other teams that made up the top 3 projects were the HR in a pocket team – who designed a mobile interface for HR information and requests, a project that was proposed by Accountor; and the Daily Coach team, who designed an online forum for employees to help with professional development, which was proposed by Taito United.
