Our experience with Performance Culture has been good. Whenever we have had issues the Performance Culture team is quick to respond and available to have human-to-human discussions. Like every new implementation, there has been a learning curve with Performance Culture. For the most part, it has been a good experience, and I feel as we work through more review cycles we will see further benefit.

Pros

Helping managers get organized and allowing them an easy-to-use format that makes the review process less stressful. Setting up Performance Culture was very easy and adding new employees takes little time.

Cons

Some of the drop downs and lists are not in alphabetical order. The objective box was a little hard for managers to get use to seeing they could not edit previously submitted objectives. Setting up, scheduling and editing check-ins seemed to cause some confusion.

We just started using the Performance Culture system in our accounting firm. We have 3 offices with 23 employees and are just implementing a new performance management program. Performance Culture Systems had all of the features we wanted with none of the extra's that we couldn't use, especially the extra price. We have had some excellent training from PCS and are now going full steam ahead with our program. I have already several employees who have remarked about how easy it is to access and use the system.

Pros

I love that it is focused on coaching as the main focus of performance management. This fits my personal philosophy as well as that of the firm. There is the opportunity for a lot of detail to go into the program. I'm very excited about the opportunity to schedule regular check-ins for each individual based on their needs. One key feature for us is the opportunity to use the system to get 360-degree feedback from each other as well as our clients.

Cons

I do wish I could personalize the emails that go out to employees more as well as being able to change the pdf's that are associated with personal files.

Advice to Others

I would advise that you take a really good look at this product. I think it is a tremendous value, but test it out for yourself. They are very good at giving you plenty of time to demo the system and see what you can do with it.

I have used this software for more than four years as part of my job. It has proven to be an effective tool in helping upper management and employees alike examine their performance in an open, honest and productive way.

Pros

Simple and straightforward. It's clear that a lot of thought and effort was put into the software and that its designers etc. truly desire to help businesses and employees succeed.

Advice to Others

Kind of cliche, but you will get out of it what you put into it.

I am using the tool as an employee and a manager.

Pros

I like as an employee I can set clear goals to improve my performance. It creates an opportunity for dialogue with my manager about what I am doing well and what I need to work on. I can see over the year how I am tracking to my overall goals. Prior to using this tool, our reviews were mediocre. I didn't have a good framework to understand what was expected of me and what I could do to improve my performance. In a sales organization, people tend to be goal driven. This clearly sets up the goals to drive the behaviors.

Cons

There are a few technical bugs that are being worked out. Nothing that is a deal breaker. I had worked on my review and it doesn't auto save so I had to re-do.

Advice to Others

The tool is great, but how a company utilizes it is equally if not more important. If the approach is negative, then the tool will be perceived as negative. Our company is using it to help identify opportunities to grow as an employee.

We did performance reviews before Performance Culture but the reviews were never organized like this. I guess we sorta "winged it." Now, we have a tool that is easy to use, well organized and helps to structure the one on one.

Performance Culture has helped our team grow closer by not only defining individual responsibilities, but assessing the attitude in which we approach our jobs. It focuses on more than just outlining / achieving professional goals. The system makes team members aware of the important roles their personalities play in reaching a positive project outcome. It removes emotion from the equation, using expectation alignment / reviews to distinguish those "playing by the rules" from those who are toxic to the system.

Likes Least

I have no complaints about the product or vendor.

Recommendations

This software can work wonders, but it needs the team's buy-in. If everyone is using it to its full capabilities, the result can be a greater harmony within the organization.

I like that this product is so simple to use and provides a lot of good tips to help you a long the way. The implementation training has been very helpful and has provided us with a lot of insight to how the company operates.

Likes Least

Being that our companies are on opposite side of the US, it makes finding training times a little harder, but they have been very helpful in staying late and making sure the training is happening at a time that works for both of us.

Recommendations

Having a company that will take the time and energy to show you the extra steps to make the product the best it can be is amazing! Take your time when evaluating different software and you'll find Performance Culture always takes that extra time as well.

Easy to use web-based product. Implementation and training was simple and efficient. Tool engages each employee in their work toward defined targets and behavioral goals in the context of company-defined values and reinforces them with frequent feedback. Transforms employee feedback from a periodic "report card" evaluation mentality to continuous, shared, self-monitoring with coaching and assessment from one's supervisor or team. Focus is on results and progress toward stated company goals and objectives.

Likes Least

The structure of the tool is not 100% intuitive, so allow a little time to get used to the logic, terminology and progression of recording information in the system. Once learned, it's very easy.

Recommendations

The approach to employee performance is refreshingly different from what we all grew up with, so plan on time to develop a culture around this reformed approach. It doesn't happen over night and it requires complete buy-in from the top down. We told all employees about the approach, explained why we were adopting Performance Culture in the context of all the changes we were making in how we run the company, over a five month transition period. We then implemented the tool over a three-month period. It has been a very smooth implementation which has been met with enthusiastic response from staff.

When introduced to the Performance Culture System (PCS), I was immediately impressed with the system’s ability to align key players with our company goals as well as the graphic nature of the evaluation results on the 2 x 2 grid.

Likes Least

Currently meets our performance review needs. The set up does require some time to set up as managers define performance objectives for employees that are aligned with company goals.

Recommendations

PCS is the perfect tool for managers and HR personnel who are looking for a better way to conduct performance reviews and to tie individual performance into company goals.

Additionally, this system has made a huge difference in our organization by creating a coaching culture via weekly meetings and quarterly performance reviews. Quarterly reviews are now two-way conversations between key players and their managers. In their 90-day performance reviews, key players have the opportunity to talk about what’s going well, what help they need in areas that are not going well and specific actions for the next 90 days. This quarterly process enables managers to be proactive and to make adjustments in resources, support as well as individual goals. Because this system is web-based, key players and managers can track progress over time and go back to review manager and employee feedback. In the past, annual reviews were viewed as necessary obligations by employees and managers and, once complete, thrown in a drawer, never to be looked at again.

PCS’s unique ability to align individual performance objectives (and for us, individual bonuses) with company goals is now very clear to everyone. Since we have used PCS for a full year, I can honestly say that a 25% increase in our annual revenue is directly tied to our implementation of this system. I highly recommend this process to any organization that strives to align their employees with their company goals.”

Transitioning to the computerized system took training for managers and employees. We continue to learning how to maximize the capabilities of the system.

Recommendations

Performance Culture combines corporate values and specific job performance into one conversation. They are both important for success as an organization. The two by two grid is an outstanding way to show the relationship of culture and job performance.

This was the perfect way for our company to incorporate a culture of performance reviews and ongoing feedback. Most of our employees live remote so it can be difficult to coach and keep them engaged. The Performance Culture system was our answer as its cloud based platform and ease of use allowed our employees to access their account at any time. The vendor is always very responsive and receptive of enhancements. I would recommend it to any small to medium sized business who is looking to incorporate a better HR and coaching culture in their workplace.

Pros

Accessibility, Ease of Use, and Great Support. We saw significant improvements in our employees after implementing this system. It tracks History and creates a baseline not only with each employee but the company as a whole so you can see your progress.

Cons

There were some reporting capabilities that I would have liked to see but they assured me they are working on adding it in

Performance Culture has been a game changer for our company. It allows us to hold everyone accountable at all times and allows each individual employee to hold themselves accountable as well. I love how you can log in at any time and make notes and revisit your goals for the quarter. It's a great system that allows you to know where you stand at all times in regards to achieving your goals.

Pros

Allows you to hold your employees accountable on an ongoing basis. Having quarterly reviews is game changer- no more yearly reviews. Performance Culture gives you the ability to log in at any time to revisit your goals and to keep you on track. It is easy to use and straightforward.

Cons

I cannot think of anything - we love the product!

We wanted to move to a computerized performance system, however I was told they were extremely expensive. The emphasis on core values and price structure sold the Performance Culture system. The two by two performance grid is also a great visual tool for managers. We are so glad to have found this system.

Pros

Employees and managers can read our mission, vision, and goals anywhere. Plus they have access to their reviews and development objectives.

Cons

As with any new system, there is a lot of set up required. It is easy to do but takes time to input the data.

When introduced to the Performance Culture System (PCS), I was immediately impressed with the system’s ability to align key players with our company goals as well as the graphic nature of the evaluation results on the 2 x 2 grid.

This system has made a huge difference in our organization (we are an-in home care company with 300 employees) by creating a coaching culture via weekly meetings and quarterly performance reviews. Quarterly reviews are now two-way conversations between key players and their managers. In their 90-day performance reviews, key players have the opportunity to talk about what’s going well, what help they need in areas that are not going well and specific actions for the next 90 days.

Since we have used PCS for a full year, I can honestly say that a 25% increase in our annual revenue is directly tied to our implementation of this system. I highly recommend this process to any organization that strives to align their employees with their company goals.

Pros

On-line system allows team members and their managers to go back over time to review progress and feedback.
Team members can see where they fall on the 2 x 2 grid and, together with their manager, create a plan for improvement.
Team members rate themselves and managers rate the team member. The areas that differ create a great opportunity for dialogue and coaching.
Alignment of weekly key performance indicators with company goals and bonuses is the greatest advantage for us.
Great support from the PCS team in helping us set the system up and coaching us through the performance evaluation process.

Cons

Managers should know that going into this they must commit to the process. It can take some time to pull it all together- i.e., defining the company goals, vision, mission, core values and each team member's performance objectives. There are no short cuts to the process, but when done well, the payoffs are enormous. Everyone is on the same page!
