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. About 15Five Founded in 2011, 15Five equips HR leaders to play a strategic role in their company’s growth. HR leaders use 15Five to combine engagement, performance and OKRs on one platform so they can make insightful decisions and take strategic action. Unlike other “command and control” performance systems, 15Five uses the latest in people science to turn managers and employees into self-driven owners of performance and engagement. To further the impact of talent on company growth, 15Five also provides education, coaching and community for HR leaders, managers and employees. HR leaders at over 3,200 companies, including Credit Karma, Spotify and Pendo, rely on 15Five’s software and services to make their talent a growth driver.

HR Tech Leader HiBob Partners with 360Learning to Deliver Cutting-Edge Automation Solution for HR and Company Leaders

HiBob | February 03, 2022

Modern HR platform and people management disruptor HiBob today announces a partnership with collaborative learning SaaS leader 360Learning to help companies gain a competitive edge in recruiting, upskilling their workforces, and creating a thriving company culture for learning and development. Through the integration, HiBob and 360Learning clients can implement a high-impact workflow enhancement tool derived from a direct connection between the two cutting-edge platforms, helping HR and L&D leaders and high-growth companies to better onboard, retain, train, and empower employees. The partnership brings an employee's HR and learning and development journeys closer together, enabling customers of both HiBob and 360Learning to more effectively track and manage employee L&D progress in relation to performance, compensation, and benefits. The closer alignment of L&D and HR insights eliminates administrative headaches, empowering people managers to allocate more time towards driving company culture, facilitating onboarding, and managing higher volumes of new hires, departures, promotions, and reorganizations. With the current labor shortage and Great Resignation, this partnership enables HR and company leaders to allocate more time towards driving an overall positive employee experience bolstered by employee betterment and advancement. "With the current skills gap, talent wars, and broadening of remote and hybrid work, companies are recognizing the importance of maintaining employee engagement by supporting an employee's professional development, A HiBob study saw that 87% of millennials rated 'career development and personal growth' as a key criteria for them in a job, with 'opportunities to learn and grow' as a main factor for retention so, in the battle for talent, companies will lose out if these perks aren't offered. This turnkey integration helps HR and managers further facilitate, recognize, and reward learning progression regardless of if an employee is in office, remote, or hybrid." -Ronni Zehavi, CEO of HiBob. The partnership allows the automatic sharing of employee user data from Bob to 360Learning, connecting HR insights more closely to the employee's learning and development journey within the 360Learning platform. People leaders can track, report, and measure the impact of collaborative learning by seeing who is creating courses for other colleagues, who is participating, who is learning and cultivating new skills, and at what levels or pace. Bringing learning and development insights closer to the employees record (performance reviews, compensation, etc.) provides managers and leaders a more insightful outlook on their people. Additionally, it allows business leaders and managers access to where an employee may be struggling or need improvement, or alternatively, where they are progressing or excelling. "Learning is one of the most defining aspects of the employee journey. How effectively an employee onboards and transitions into new roles affects their growth and performance, At a time when companies are struggling to attract and upskill employees, L&D teams need to be strategic and focus on facilitating collaborative learning, not reconciling systems. Our partnership with HiBob does exactly that, empowering HR and L&D leaders to focus on people and learning." -360Learning CEO Nick Hernandez. Both pioneers in their respective industries, HiBob and 360Learning share commitments to putting people first and empowering employees. The integration is a step forward for two powerhouse companies that are on the rise and well-positioned to continue helping companies educate, maintain, and attract high-performing talent in culture-first workplaces.
