About Threads Culture


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.

If you want easy and awesome, THREADS is your answer

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.

Simple but so Amazing!

Pros

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!

Cons

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.

Seems too good to be true - but it's the truth!

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Great product for review management based on performance as well as company values.

If your company takes pride in their unique culture and values, Threads is a must.

Pros

Easy to use platform for continuous tracking of employee performance. The Threads admin staff is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. They go out of their way to try and accommodate all of our company's needs. The automatic generated review draft upon completion of a review is a nice feature.

Cons

There are some limitations within the system that is not customizable (i.e. review frequency is company wide instead of employee based, job descriptions can not be customized per employee - only by job title).

Great software, easy-to-use, excellent way to define and promote the values that are truly important to your company!

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.

All-encompassing performance review software

Pros

Threads is exactly what this company has been looking for; to incorporate the company's values into the performance review process so that each associate is measured not only on job performance but how well they live up to the company's values. All associates are able to see how they are doing throughout the year so no surprises when it comes to review time. Managers and other associates can leave input as to how the associate is doing at anytime and associates can leave input to let their manager's know what accomplishments have been achieved. Their team is awesome! You send them the information they need and they set Threads up for you and do all the training. Training can take place at your place of business or through a webinar or both. They will do as many training sessions as you feel is needed. The Threads team is always available to ask questions and to help you develop or change your company's information within the software. This is not a company that will sell you something, start you with setting it up and then not be available when you need assistance - they are always available.

Cons

When making edits in Threads you cannot undo any changes that have been made.

Human Resources Dream Come True!

Pros

First, I was fortunate enough to speak with Sean Abbas, Founder of Threads. He took time out of his busy day to demo the software, which I didn't know until end of demo/questions. He occasionally does this in order to help him fully understand what businesses are desiring in a performance evaluation software. The fact that someone like Sean took time out of his busy day to do such said something about his company: he cares! He wants businesses to get the absolute most out of his product. Secondly, we're a small business that has a limited budget; Threads doesn't charge an implementation fee, which can average $2,000. Third, Threads aligns values and results together. Important for us because we want to hire/keep employees that have the same core values as the company.

Cons

There isn't anything I don't like about it so far.

Excellent Product with Exceptional Service

This program has made my life so much easier as the head of HR. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to simplify their structure for employee reviews.

Pros

This product is extremely easy to use, and Threads does a very good job training. Their support staff has blown me away. They are always get back to me right away, and are willing to actually walk me through any of my problems, instead of make me go through hoops to finally talk to a person. The program is very user-friendly. Even though they trained well, I feel like I could figure out how to use most of the program on my own - it's that simple!

Cons

I wish supervisors could have some degree of edit ability on Job Descriptions. Right now, the program only allows the Admin to make any changes to job descriptions and core values. I understand why, but it would be convenient to be able to restrict supervisors to have a small degree of Admin rights.

Software that really adds value to your business performance reviews

Pros

This software helped me assess my organization's culture and figure out where the weaknesses in our core values lied. We had been struggling with low employee morale and had yet to find a way to figure out our problems to develop a solution. Threads Culture provided both an intuitive and visual way for us to identify these issues.

Cons

While I don't have many negative things to say about the product, the aesthetic appeal of the software could definitely be improved.

Very easy to use

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

Nothing that I dislike. It is easy to rate this company a 10 out of 10.
