Workboard is a Web-based application that enables managers and their teams to set and achieve their goals, keep a fact-based list of work for performance reviews, and automatically report on work progress. It can be accessed via any device with an Internet connection, including smartphones. Founded in 2013, Workboard is used by over 1,500 organizations.
Workboard helps companies engage staff and get more done by creating clear goals for each employee. For instance, managers can track progress toward individual goals, and give weekly feedback on their team’s performance to show they’re taking note of employee efforts and help improve the accountability of individual contributors.
Additionally, Workboard allows supervisors to send badges and rewards to their employees to praise their efforrts in real time. Managers can also create quantitative and qualitative lists of employee achievements, which are useful when it comes time for annual or quarterly employee evaluations and help ensure that the review process is as transparent as possible.

Workboard keeps my team organized and every week focused on the right priorities and target goal achievement.
Removing all the action items from email is so liberating!
This frees up time for me to actually lead the team.
The Workboard support team is brilliantly responsive.
We would like to use the product for performance reviews as well!
The module is not yet available. - hoping it is on the roadmap.
Workboard already manages the teams goals, the achievement, would be easy to roll that capability in?!
We selected Workboard because it not only keeps action items from falling through the cracks - but also because Workboard makes it easy to ensure each week we are goal aligned and we have prioritized the team member actions.

Workboard makes it easy to stay on task and keep an eye on what my employees are accomplishing. The company is always implementing updates so the product just keeps getting better! I also appreciate the CPEs they sponsor, I always find them interesting.
We've had some issues with my employees sending me an update on their to-do list, it doesn't always go thru. I also wish that when I am sharing my list with my manager that there was a way to filter out the items that have already been completed or put on pause.
I have no recommendations for others evaluating software like this.

I really like the detail and abilities in action items. We treat them as "Projects". Following from start to finish of a project with keeping people in the loop is a great feature for our company.
I have two main complaints but I am sure these are in the works. First, we would love to see a projects based calendar feature. Not just single users or groups of items but a sort of Master Calender so we can see where certain items overlap or where there might be space to move an item. The other is a Ipad app. I use one alot as a developer, so it would be nice to track things on there.
First, figure out what your needs are. Not all systems like this are the same so understanding what you need helps you to understand how beneficial features and benefits are for workboard. Second, no project management software is perfect. But, finding one that wants to help make it perfect and acts on that is important.
