We understand and solve your key issues 

We build products which are designed to solve our customers key challenges. Effective performance management helps you overcome crucial organisational hurdles. 

  • Ineffective annual appraisals

    HR directors, managers and employees are all fed up with annual appraisals and the lack of value they provide. Annual appraisals are time-consuming and often affected by recency bias, which is why 75% of employees feel that they're an unfair reflection of performance.

     

    circle-chevron-right-solid.svg See how we can help

  • Low employee engagement

    A lack of goal setting, feedback and frequent conversation is likely to result in reduced engagement. In fact, employees are 3.2 times less likely to be motivated when they don't receive continuous feedback.

  • Lack of people insights

    Tracking the performance and wellbeing of employees is often complicated, and it's even more difficult to extract this data and gain valuable insights in the age of remote working.

  • Unclear objectives

    Objectives are an integral part of successful performance management, but it can be difficult to set meaningful goals that are aligned with your business strategy

Inspiring and motivating teams requires more than annual performance reviews. Regular conversations help managers support employees, set relevant goals and become better leaders.

  • Benefits
    • Managers can uncover blockers within their team to maintain employee productivity.
    • Discussion prompts defined by conversation type support managers to ensure they get the most out of conversations with their team.

    • Employees feel motivated as they are recognised for the work they are doing in real-time.

    • Managers can request feedback for members of their team, giving them greater insight into individual performance.

  • Event types
    • Minimal HR admin. Create templates for employees to use and then employees can run their own rounds of Feedback Circles without the need of a facilitator. 
    • Empower employees to drive their own development. Unlike 360 feedback, Feedback Circles shows who the responses are from to ensure feedback is helpful rather than negative, which can often be the case when it is anonymous. 
    • Everything in one place. Ensure goals are set from the feedback received by having goals and feedback in one system.

Engagement

Meaningful conversations, agile goal-setting and regular feedback all contribute to improved employee engagement. Discover how our performance management system can positively impact your people.

    • My Mindspace gives people instant feedback on their responses, rather than waiting on survey results to be sent off and analysed. Employees will benefit from timely tips to help them become motivated at work, so they can see a real difference when it matters most.
