Threads Culture Software


 

Threads Culture is an HR solution that enables users to measure employees against the business’ core values as well as goals unique to each employee’s position to identify who is adding to and who is detracting from company culture.

Threads Culture enables capture of self, peer and 360 feedback to help teams communicate throughout the year, not just at review time. Each business can define their culture based on key values, and the specific goals or standards for each job description. During hiring and later the review process, team members who work according to the core values and achieve their goals are rewarded for supporting and contributing to the culture of the company.

All employee profile pages contain contact information, personnel documents, and access to past reviews. New reviews can easily be created and added to each profile as the employee makes progress within the organization.

The solution is available with a monthly subscription and training and coaching are included.

Support has been great. No question is dumb and they really seem to care about your company culture...and they want to educate you on ways to improve that. I feel like it's not just software; as an HR department of one person, I feel like I finally have a couple more in my court!

Pros

We recently defined our company's core values. It was important for us to find ways to make those a part of our daily lives, and not just words on a poster. We also desperately need to move away from paper forms that meant really nothing (if they were even completed!) to something more accurate and meaningful...and easy to use. Threads is a way for us to accomplish all of these things, without adding extra burden to our employees and managers, who are already overloaded. Threads has made us excited about "doing reviews" instead of dreading them.

Cons

The setup has been time consuming for HR because our job descriptions are a mess. We have spent a lot of time defining and refining these. Job descriptions are a must have with this system. By setting a go-live date, we've forced ourselves to have to work hard to get these job descriptions done.

Threads allows our company to decide what's most important to us, and how to measure those values instead of just evaluating our employees on their job performance and responsibilities. We couldn't agree more with Threads' belief that "In a great culture, it’s not just what you do, but how you do it."

Pros

I love that Threads is so easy to use; all the features in it feel intuitive and you don't waste time clicking around figuring out which tab to scroll down to find where this info goes, only to click back to 3 other pages to see it graphed. It's all connected and makes sense. I also love that I don't get endless emails or calls from the Threads team trying to promote other products or sell me extras. Everything's already included in the subscription - all features, all future upgrades, all the support I could ever need.

Cons

It's still early in our experience with Threads, but so far, there's nothing we'd change other than the MOST minor thing - the initial training to learn how to use the software was a bit redundant and drawn out, but I'd take that any day as opposed to being confused and not receiving enough support.

Overall, it's going to do exactly what I've been struggling to do on my own for years.

Pros

The representatives are very knowledgeable and a big help with set up.
The software is exactly what I was looking for to manage Employee Performance.
The unique way of measuring employee performance and tracking throughout the year goes beyond my expectations.

Cons

The set up process for each job is tedious. While I understand why it has to be this way and I love the results, it's extremely time consuming to personalize the components of each one.

So glad we went with Threads!

Pros

Incredible customer service, we dealt directly with the CEO and he was so helpful. The idea of focusing on core values and our culture really suits our company as a start-up with about 45 employees.

Cons

It can be tricky to convince people to use the feedback feature and leave comments on their coworkers, but that is nothing on Threads Culture, it's just something that we have to work on.

Pros

This survey process understands the relevancy of company values. The evaluation-blend of performance results and cultural fit/effectiveness is the prime feature of this survey tool.

Cons

For new companies that do not have existing job descriptions, it's essential to generate the JDs prior to getting too engaged in the evaluation process. Participants (managers and leaders) leaders must ensure the accuracy of the job description.

At RedPeak, we are a smaller company that highly values culture and its effect on long term retention. We searched for almost a year and evaluated a number of options, most of which were simply too cumbersome, formal and/or elaborate for our needs. Then we came across THREADS. Since I had done all the research and made the case for the switch, I was a bit nervous as to how it all would come together. Adjusting to new software, as well as, a different approach to reviews can be difficult in a company that values stability and consistency, and I was convinced in the process of completely changing our approach, something would go wrong. Was I wrong? The easiest transition we have made. The software worked, it is uber easy to navigate and the team embraced the new approach, once they understood they had an easy place to provide ongoing feedback on fellow team members. The weekly updates are invaluable, provide real insight to the remarkable recoveries and efforts team members make and potential learning/feedback opportunities that would provide assistance and support. The best part is that kudos/challenges get in front of the CEO, who waits for them each Friday, and has indicated their value. This product is not complicated, it does inspire ongoing peer to peer feedback, and truly helps the team understand the expectation from a culture and results perspective.

Pros

How easy it is to provide feedback and understand whether or not we are delivering authenticity in regard to the cultural values promise we make the team.

Cons

I have had numerous onsite/field team members indicate they would use the system even more if there was an app.

Advice to Others

Seriously, I looked a long time. If you want simplistic, effective and a way to measure a real-time pulse, use THREADS. Make sure you bring the agent in to speak to the group before the roll out as he is very good at establishing buy in and helping the team understand why THREADS works the way it does.

We are a marketing and advertising agency and it is critical that any system we operate in aligns with and supports our culture. Our previous review process also included core values, just as Threads does, and this is one of the many reasons we selected Threads. The build-out was streamlined and quick. We provided our agency infrastructure and job descriptions and Threads took care of the rest, quickly I might add. The system is very easy to navigate within and as our Threads representative said during our training sessions - if you can post on Facebook or send a text, you won't have any trouble navigating within Threads and, administration is just as simple! There is one unique benefit that Threads offers that many other vendors do not, or charge an arm and a leg for, and that is TRAINING. Threads conducted our training at each of our locations, both manager and employee populations, and these sessions were great, so beneficial. Don't overlook this when you are shopping. They charge travel expenses and that's all! This is invaluable as HR can partner with them during that training, which I feel was a significant benefit to our roll-out and agency. Thanks to all including technical support - they are just as great!

Likes Least

There really isn't anything we have come across that we do not like. The system is simple and the functionality is key. Companies are always evolving and Threads has the fluidity to evolve along with us.

Recommendations

Look at the functionality of the system and the ease of the navigation and administration. Not sure you will find another that matches it for the price point! There is no start-up cost with Threads so do not forget about that. We saw high start-up and training fees and that was training only the administrator(s) not actually conducting the training - HUGE!

We really like how the product measures both Job performance separate from Culture then blends the scores to give a true more effective rating. Love how it takes a lot of the work out by showing you highest and lowest scores and moves goals to next review. The comment feature allows for comments to be added quickly and easily creating a diary for every employee. this not only helps out when doing year end review, it brings potential corrective action to the forefront and the weekly emails to supervisors keeps management aware of what employees are doing or not doing. Staff is very responsive and willing to help in any way possible

Likes Least

The org chart is a little clumsy to use and navigate. Would be nice if it allowed dotted line and dual reports. Would love it if they could add and option to share a comment with the employee being commented on if you so desire. I little pricey but hopefully it will be worth it.

Recommendations

Software Advise was a great resource. They interviewed me to find out what I was looking for and what was important to me, then they matched me up with 4-5 software products, and assisted with arranging for demos. I highly recommend there service.

I found Threads though Software Advice, they were the first product we demoed and I LOVED it. The rest we demoed afterwards didnt stand a chance. We have been looking for more ways to integrate our values into daily life at our company and this fit the bill. We are a mid-sized company as is Threads and I think immediately there were a lot of synergies. We actually did a demo with the CEO of Threads with the CEO of our company, and that was very impactful.

The product is soooo easy to use its ridiculous. Incredibly user friendly. We sprung for the in-person training and the staff really enjoyed it - got great feedback. The CEO is a great public speaker and everyone could relate to what he was preaching. Their customer service is also amazing, if you call them you talk to a real person, and today when I called with a question the CEO himself answered!

Another thing I loved is that Threads never badgered me for the sale. Other vendors I demoed were getting CRAZY calling and emailing me nonstop, but Threads followed up once I think and that was it. And the rest PALED in comparison, I knew from the minute I saw Threads I had to have it.

There isn't really anything, it's quite different from our previous performance review system (which was pathetic to say the least), so outside of staff getting used to the new system, there hasn't been anything bad.

Recommendations

I guess it just depends on what you want. An organization without core values might struggle with this software as that is highly integrated. I'm not sure if there is anything as user-friendly as Threads though, it's so intuitive.

I really liked the fact that Threads employees are always available to answer questions. From the get go, we were assigned a specific person/technician that was always there whenever we needed him. Also, they set up our entire organization on Threads. All we did was send out employees' job descriptions and information. Afterwards, Threads was always available to perform either onsite or off site training. The training lasts about an hour and is very detailed. Sean does a really good job at explaining how to use the software properly and answering all questions we have. The evaluation performance part allowed us to see how every employees are performing and what we could do to help those that were performing poorly.

I haven't found anything negative to say about Threads yet. The software works perfectly for us and it is helping a lot in evaluating employee performance.

Recommendations

Threads is really easy to use and is designed to fit your organization's culture and values. It is a fun interactive software and all information posted are kept confidential. Any reviews or comments posted to other employees are only available for managers and administrators to see. Therefore, the information remains anonymous to the employee reviewed.

I evaluated over 7 different performance management software systems prior to selecting the top two demos for our senior management team to view. Needless to say, our management loved Thread's concept. Threads is exactly what we'd been looking for to close the gap between performance and values of the organization.

My manager loves reviewing the comments/feedback that he receives each week through Threads. I can honestly say that their staff is wonderful - our client rep who assisted us with our implementation was great to work with. Always extremely helpful.

The implementation process was seamless. We provided the requested data to Threads and their team took care of the setup. I can only describe my experience with Threads as "Awesome" throughout the entire process up to and including training. Sean provided the training for both managers and employees and everyone raved about the training.

Threads is exceptionally user-friendly as a starter. Far more impressive, however, is the fundamental philosophy of the Threads performance review process. It is predicated on simplicity and gets to the heart of what you must evaluate - support to the company culture and business results. It is to the point and eliminates complexity. There is ample room to expand in comments sections, but there is no need to dig deeper and waste unnecessary process time.

Likes Least

Not all aspects of implementation and administration are documented... FACs will help and perhaps video tutorials. I also look forward to a polling capability, where employees can evaluate the organization, and ultimately their Supervisor.

Recommendations

Challenge yourself to confirm what you really need, not what hits all of the process must-haves that you may have encountered in a large company environment. The flexibility of this tool makes life a lot less complex. A Threads review is a motivating event and leaves people feeling good, with a clear understanding of strengths and areas of improvement.

I evaluated at least six different performance software systems prior to making my decision. After my demo, I was certain Threads was the choice for us. The most attractive thing for me was how our values are incorporated into the performance evaluation. I could not find another software platform on the market that did this. The ease of use, low cost and no contract were just benefits on top of how I felt the software was a match for our company. The exceptional service we received during the setup and roll-out of the system by far exceeded my expectations. The organizational chart is a plus for us and actually eliminated the need for a separate software we were using to keep our chart up to date.

Likes Least

Product - I would like to have a feature to print the organizational chart. Vendor - I cannot find one thing I do not like about Threads as a vendor. The entire team at Threads has been professional, responsive and genuinely concerned about the success of our system.

Recommendations

I made a list of all the things we were looking for the software to help us with, including features that we would like to have. Evaluate several, but make sure that Threads is one of them - I think you will be glad you did!
