15Five Reshapes Performance Management With a Holistic and Insights-Driven Platform for HR Leaders

15Five | March 14, 2022

15Five today announced the release of Perform, a robust performance management solution designed to help HR leaders create a performance program that fits their organizational goals, culture, and technology stack.

Perform enables HR leaders to run an end-to-end performance management cycle, from performance reviews through to employee compensation and career development conversations. The platform has been designed from the ground up to be easy-to-use for HR leaders, beneficial for managers and employees, and robust for managing the back-end administrative demands of a performance cycle for companies of any size.

“As companies adapt to a new work environment, the performance review needs to evolve and adapt, In addition to helping employees develop in their roles and drive informed decisions for advancement and compensation, the modern HR leader needs a performance review system that saves time to deploy, is flexible to their needs, and embeds seamlessly into their existing solutions. We designed a streamlined workflow with the goal of saving HR's time.”

- Vincent Huang, Chief Product Officer at 15Five.

The Perform platform is informed by 15Five’s research, which revealed that there are several inconsistencies and gaps in how HR leaders, managers, and employees perceive and experience the performance review process and its outcomes. For example, 75% of HR leaders agree that the review process provides an accurate representation of performance. That confidence level drops to 66% of managers and 43% of employees. 79% of HR leaders think the process is fair and equitable, but only half of employees agree. Similar differences exist for perceptions around the ability of reviews to improve performance, engagement, and employee satisfaction.

Data also suggests the need for a new approach to make this process effective in the modern workplace. Leveraging Perform, HR leaders and managers are given an opportunity to reimagine the performance review process at their organizations, close the experience gaps, and make the process impactful and fair to all involved.

An Easy-to-Use Solution

A problem common to many performance review platforms is they become cumbersome and fail to maintain a user-friendly experience as they mature. They rely on manual processes that are time-consuming, labor intensive, and fraught with human error. The result is that following implementation, the platforms are often left untouched by managers and employees.

However, being easy-to-use is in Perform’s DNA. The product features facilitate ongoing, growth-oriented performance conversations that are seamlessly integrated into the performance review process for greater accuracy and ease of use.

Dynamic integrations with HRIS platforms

Perform also enables dynamic integrations with leading human resources information system (HRIS) platforms, beginning with ADP and followed shortly by Workday and UKG. It streamlines the process of real-time updating by automatically receiving employee data from the HRIS and sending performance review data back. As a result, the HRIS can be maintained as the ‘central source of truth’ for all employee data, from job roles to historical performance results.

Built-in Flexibility

Perform can be customized to neatly fit with any culture or tech stack to create an experience that’s convenient for HR leaders and easy for employees to adapt. It gives HR easy access to prebuilt dashboards that are readied for quick insights that drive action. Perform’s dashboard and data tools allow HR leaders to get granular when required or view a summary analysis for an immediate read of a situation, such as company-wide stats on review completions.

JumpCloud Partners with Personio to Secure and Automate Employee Experience from Day One

Personio and JumpCloud | September 02, 2022

JumpCloud Inc., the Open Directory Platform™ that helps IT teams Make (Remote) Work Happen™, and Personio, Europe’s leading HR software company for small and mid-sized organizations, today announced they are partnering to enable a simple, secure, and streamlined user experience for employees throughout the entire employee lifecycle. With the partnership, Personio’s customers will be able to implement zero touch employee onboarding, including instant provisioning to necessary IT resources including devices, cloud applications, and on-premises and cloud infrastructure. The integration will also allow small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to efficiently scale by eliminating multiple manual IT and HR processes, improving security by reducing chance of human error in data entry, facilitate compliance through separation of duties and complete logging/event tracking data, and minimizing siloed workloads to boost the capability of employees and the success of their employers. Today’s workplace environment includes stiff competition for talent, rapid innovation in workplace tools, and an ever-increasing number of security threats. This convergence of factors puts pressure on organizations to deliver a premium user experience for employees. Despite having the same aims, often HR’s focus on people management operates entirely separately from IT’s focus on Secure, Frictionless Access™ to IT resources. This siloed approach creates a number of possible issues for organizations including operational delays, manual errors, dissatisfied users, inefficient onboarding, compliance challenges, and a negative impact to overall worker productivity. Personio and JumpCloud are both best of breed in each world, partnering to bridge HR and IT data streams and processes and unlock the potential of both HR and IT. This partnership integrates JumpCloud’s Open Directory Platform with Personio’s HRIS solution to initiate identity lifecycle management tasks, which are performed automatically, fully, and consistently by JumpCloud based on the authoritative data provided by Personio. Now SMEs can increase productivity and improve workplace satisfaction through streamlined internal processes. These centralized workflows empower HR to continue to focus on managing the employee journey while IT can focus on strict access control without introducing friction to the end user. “SME teams are tasked with the same responsibilities as their enterprise counterparts, but experience a greater fallout when unhappy employees leave and experience greater impact when employees’ productivity is constricted by processes and tools, With this integration, HR and IT can retain the control they need while mutually benefitting from centralized workloads and maintaining the ability to use the best cloud directory and HRIS solutions. SMEs can ensure their employees are happier, more productive, and more secure.” -Doug White, head of strategic alliances, JumpCloud Europe’s SMEs are grappling with an ever-expanding range of software services that touch people's data and processes, affecting the overall employee and as a result business success, Together, JumpCloud and Personio can streamline the employee experience and create new, more efficient ways for SMEs everywhere to scale,said Hugues Vincent, head of product partnerships, Personio. JumpCloud’s Open Directory Platform gives IT teams an easy and automated path for Secure, Frictionless Access from any device to any IT resource, anywhere. The company’s platform is already deployed in over 180,000 worldwide organizations, including 1,800 partners, and its commitment to ease of use for both IT admins and the employees they manage has resulted in rapid product growth, rapid hiring expansion, and rapid customer adoption.

Based in Munich, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Dublin and Amsterdam, Personio’s mission is to make HR processes as transparent and efficient as possible so HR can focus on what matters most: people.
