Performance reviews are broken. At least, they were, until we fixed a few things like unreasonable time commitments, weak results, and infrequency, then added meaningful feedback and better ways to measure performance and engagement. The result? Innovative (dare we say, enjoyable?) employee evaluations and performance management.
Can you remember everything you did over the past year? Neither can the managers or employees in your organization. When performance appraisals only happen once a year, it’s tough to make them accurate and meaningful. Often, they become a time-consuming drag on your people, with little to show for the effort.
BambooHR’s performance appraisal software helps cut to the heart of effective performance management. Our employee evaluations encourage action and limit subjectivity, and the entire process takes far less time than traditional talent management. The result? Higher engagement, more accurate reflections of employee performance, and more chances to address problems in the moment—instead of six months from now.
We have the inside scoop on employee performance.
Knowing when, where, and how to help an employee is one of the toughest skills for managers to learn, but it’s also one of the most important. Effective talent management can drastically boost retention, engagement, and (you guessed it) performance.
To help managers help their people, we’ve created employee performance reports. They’re a simple, visual way to compare performance and engagement individually and across the entire company. You can identify high-performing employees who feel undervalued and take action before burnout sets in. Or you can find underperforming individuals and explore ways to help them improve. Our reports give you the info you need to make the right call for your people.
Create, track, and grow together.
Timely feedback works. In fact, 51 percent of employees prefer to receive feedback as they complete projects or in consistent one-on-ones with their managers. That’s a tough schedule to maintain for performance appraisals, but we can help you get there.
BambooHR lets employees create, monitor, and collaborate on goals with their managers—all within our performance appraisal software. This creates the constant feedback channel that modern employees crave without requiring extra time and attention. And with automated reminders and notifications alerting you to new comments, goal progression, and goal completion, staying on top of it all is easy.
Company performance reports give you a bird’s-eye view.
Do you know how each department views your company, or which teams feel most valued? Do you know how and why your performance has changed over time?
Company performance reporting is the quick and easy way for HR and executives to learn how employees feel about the company and what factors are influencing their feelings. By comparing organizational performance appraisals over time, across departments, managers, salary level, location, and type of employment, you can identify issues, make improvements, and even prevent problems before they occur.
Feedback from all the right sources.
It’s hard to see the whole performance picture when employees work independently with colleagues and clients. BambooHR provides performance insight from the people who know employees best: their peers.
We provide simple, meaningful questions that help peer reviewers to focus on what an employee does well and how they can improve. Peer reviews are one of the best ways for managers to identify employee strengths, areas of improvement, and career development opportunities. That’s talent management at its finest.
Automated reminders in case you run out of sticky notes.
From reminding managers to schedule check-ins to making sure employee evaluations are filled out correctly, tracking performance management can add a mountain to your workload. That’s why BambooHR sets you up with automated reminders to keep everyone on track, company-wide.
Simply select the method and frequency, and we'll send reminders to you and your employees to help the process running smoothly. Combined with dashboard notifications in Home, automated reminders are the best way to ensure performance tasks get done on time, every time.
