8 Benefits of Professional and Performance Evaluation Tools

The Right Tool for the Job: Professional and Performance Evaluation Tool Benefits

Evaluations. Reviews. Appraisals.

However your organization puts it, those words can – and often – immediately evoke terror and fear.

Why? Because it sounds like we’re being judged. And when your job could potentially be on the line, the fear factor increases exponentially.

But surprisingly, both employers and employees are unhappy with the current state of professional and performance evaluation tools.

Deloitte found that 49% of companies think performance reviews aren’t a productive use of their time, and only 10% think that it drives employee engagement and improves performance. 

It seems that these evaluations are nothing more than a box to be checked. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

In fact, we’d argue that with the right professional and performance evaluation tools, your employees could actually feel empowered by the process.

‘Wait. How in the — ?’ you mutter.

It’s true! Because when empowered with the right performance management tools, managers and employees alike can walk away with actionable feedback and guidance to drive individual performance and team productivity.

That’s why our performance evaluation solutions offer customizable, easy-to-use cloud-based software to efficiently and effectively manage professional growth and performance across your organization, seamlessly integrating and managing the evaluation process from start to finish.
