"So Far, So Great!"

What do you like best?

I like the user interface - the adoption rate for PerformYard was instantaneous, because it was similar to so many platforms we currently use. It's clean, contemporary and very easy-to-use. I like that we have a dedicated Customer Success Manager (Lauren!) who is always available for my plethora of questions. I like the reporting functionality and the capabilities to customize employee profiles. What I felt PerformYard succeeded in was overall functionality and customization of the platform.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far - PerformYard seems very receptive to feedback on items we'd perhaps like to see in the future and are always making updates! I would love to see the Org. Chart feature laid out a few different ways (currently just laid out vertically), but I think the Org. Chart alone is a helpful section to have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The one thing I recommend doing for all performance management systems is doing your due diligence. We checked out a few other systems (Review Snap, Culture Amp and Lattice), but ultimately decided Perform Yard was the best fit for a number of reasons (cost, ease of use, customer service, customization, features, etc.) We also checked references and spoke with clients similar to us who were able to attest to their experience, which Perform Yard was willing and ready to provide!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automating performance reviews (they were paper-based forms previously), increasing frequency of feedback beyond twice a year with check-ins, ability to easily track performance throughout the year through notes tracked in the system.

"First Time Digital Reviews!"

What do you like best?

We are coming from a manual paper process. We love the digital concept and tracking abilities that we now have using PerformYard!

What do you dislike?

This is a new process for us; we have not come across any negatives at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have found that PerformYard is a great way for our employees and managers to interact. We have transitioned from an annual (paper) review process. This allows us to have more check-ins with employees to track progress where they are for the year: meeting goals, anticipating needs, assign training, etc. The ability to assign and track goals is very easy to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to have stored reviews and interactions. With paper, things get lost or "misplaced"...now we are able to document and have a historical tracker of all of our employee/manager interactions.

What Performance Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent service with Lauren!!"

What do you like best?

The success of our implementation depended upon the ease of usage and level of support. Lauren was there every step of the way and was a great teacher. She allowed us as much time as possible to learn and provided specific step by step tools for us to review.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I specifically dislike. The email to open another screen sometimes is vague and easy for people to ignore. I don't know as there is anything we can do about that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our firm is growing and so is the level of accountability for everyone in the organization. This program allows us to set SMART goals that can be implemented alone or as part of a team. We can easily track how close we are to meeting our strategic goals as a company, department, team or individuals. It has also allowed everyone to "step up" their game and have impact over their own performance and promotions.

"Performance Review Transformation"

What do you like best?

I like how easy the product is to use and modify as we evolve our processes. Our intent was to transition from a cumbersome and generic paper based annual performance appraisal to a more frequent and meaningful conversation focused performance process. This was the first year of our experience of our team was positive.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that we have to complete form templates prior to launching a process. Would prefer a bit more flexibility here. But we are able to get what we need done so its not really a barrier just a personal preference.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

See above. We went from a paper based process annually to a quarterly feedback process where team members where getting more meaningful feedback and more timely. Other bonus features were the org chart, company goal visibility and peer recognition features which the team loves.

"Director of Finance and Human Resources"

What do you like best?

The cascading goals tree was a feature I found most useful to our organization. This feature allows us to link individual and department level goals to organization-wide goals and provides a visual for us to see how well we align. Set up was very easy and allows us to track goals in progress.

What do you dislike?

PerformYard is a new tool we are in the process of implementing. Like any new tool, there is a learning curve. However, our account representative is extremely helpful and has been able to answer all of our questions quickly and easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted a tool to help with goal setting and alignment. We also wanted a way to track goal achievement. We think this product will help us better understand where we spending our time and resources.

"Intuitive & Flexible"

What do you like best?

We can use the system any way we need - there's a lot of functionality that's organized in a simple way. We looked at 8-10 different tools and my focus groups loved the look of PerformYard best. My employees love that they can't make a mistake - just about anything you do in the tool is changeable and it will track those changes to maintain accountability - a must have in an agile environment.

What do you dislike?

I would love to see the tool implement more functionality for a matrix organization - it's currently limited to a traditional org chart or hierarchy and we've struggled a bit with finding workarounds that benefit our cross-functional teams. We'd love to have our team leaders engage in performance management with their team members.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great tool for organizations with departments that enjoy autonomy in the style with which they use supervise their people.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using PerformYard to solve the problems we have with employees not understanding how performance influences their pay and prompting performance discussions more often so that feedback and pay decisions don't come as a surprise at the end of a year. The goal tree has shown us just how matrixed of an organization we truly are and prompting great conversations on the way we're structured and improvements we can make to operations. We've been using PerformYard for less than a year so our organization is still acclimating to the drastic change from a paper-based tool used once a year to a cloud-based tool used at least 3 times a year so we have some time before we realize other benefits.

"Great tool for Performance Management"

What do you like best?

My experience with setup and implementation was excellent. My Customer Success Manager was outstanding, very responsive and helped customize our rollout to accommodate a quick implementation.

I love being able to view a dashboard to see our progress on getting evaluations completed. I like the review and sign-off process. I am excited to start using the goal setting functionality.

What do you dislike?

Website can still be a little glitchy here and there. Very difficult to do on mobile devices. Would prefer an app or better mobile optimization

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before implementing any sort of Performance Management System, it is important to have buy-in from your managers. Also, don't try to implement in 2 weeks. If you need to, PerformYard will make it work, but trust me, you don't want to do that to yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using PerformYard for performance management along with goal-setting. We initially rolled it out just in time for our annual review process only, so we are just digging into the goal setting functionality.

One of the most immediate benefits was being able to track progress on Self-Evaluations and Employee Evaluations. As the HR Leader, I was also able to review Employee Evaluations and provide feedback to managers in order to make the evaluations more specific.

Our next problem to solve will be driving goal-setting throughout our organization. We also plan to set goals specific to training, and use PerformYard as a method of tracking training.

"PerformYard has met our performance management needs, and has been readily adopted by our employees."

What do you like best?

PerformYard is "intuitive" -- it is easy to navigate and simple to use. It encourages dynamic coaching via status reports (monthly check-ins), allows for documentation, and adds a social media flavor with a "feed" for employees to provide each other shout-outs.

What do you dislike?

I wish it could integrate with our payroll system, but we have found work-arounds such as creating a work-flow that provides notification to our payroll administrator any time an employee's pay or status changes in PerformYard.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Annual reviews were not providing our employees the coaching and mentoring that we wanted. PerformYard allows supervisors who like to give frequent feedback that opportunity, and allows for employees to take control of their communications with their supervisors. For those supervisors with few employees, or who do not use the system often, it is user-friendly and they can navigate PerformYard without much experience or assistance from HR.

"Great Experience, Easy to Use"

What do you like best?

Customer support is probably one of the best I have had from an HR SaaS provider. Issues and problems are solved quickly. The software is easy to use, I was able to navigate my way through it from the beginning with ease. I think the thing I like the best is that our employees and managers like using PerformYard.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing huge that I dislike, there are a few minor things that would be nice to haves not currently available which would make it easier as an administrator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using PerformYard for quarterly coaching/feedback. We went from a complex and time consuming process to one that is quick and efficient.

"Very happy with PerformYard platform and support!"

What do you like best?

We've been using PerformYard "live" with our staff for about 4 1/2 months--we love it. Gone are the days of the clunky paper evaluation that got filed in personnel folder and forgotten. We have real-time access to goals, public recognition and accountability to circle back on things from evaluations. We're going through our first annual review using the platform and managers are loving the experience. User friendly and available ALL THE TIME for staff/managers to access and update.

What do you dislike?

We're only 4 1/2 months into using it, so we're figuring out how to best utilize the features to "work for us" --the system is easy, but we're probably using 1/2 of what it can do so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's helpful to have a plan of where you want to go and forms you want to implement so that you're ready for the implementation phase. We were completing org cor values at the same time as implementation so we will need to go back and update the evaluation forms to match those added values, but that shouldn't be too hard.

Ask for samples of what other orgs have done or how things are being used. It's hard to know what you don't know. :)

"Best implementation ever!"

What do you like best?

The best part of the process was the implementation and support provided by the customer service person. Laura is the best. She did much of the heavy lifting in the background based on documents we submitted at the beginning. Questions were answered promptly either in person or via email. The way in which the basic form can be duplicated and easily modified is a great asset of the program. The way in which the goals roll up to corporate goals is awesome. Implementation & Support are the best ever.

What do you dislike?

Everything about Perform Yard met expectations. Several vendors were considered, Perform Yard was chosen easily over the others. The only criticism has been the need for a 1-on-1 performance management component to dovetail into the quarterly review process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy. Simple. Intuitive. Flexible. It works.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A small business needed a simple online solution to managing employee performance. The program was adopted by all employees and managers as a big improvement over the use of paper performance review forms. Deployment is simple. Management of the process is easy. Reports and analytics are clear and effective.

"Happy Customer!"

What do you like best?

PerformYard's features have complimented and benefited my company's needs. It provides the flexibility needed to align with our performance management strategies and procedures. The PerformYard team is friendly and always ready to assist. They are open to hearing our advice and taking action on improvements that we feel could make the system even more effective.

What do you dislike?

The additional features that we have requested such as the platform being able to have more of a social media feel, is something that PerformYard has been receptive to and is working to achieve. However, PerformYard satisfies the base need of managing performance and is a flexible system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend PerformYard to companies that have a need for basic performance management. The evaluation workflow and process is simple and you can cater it to your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PerformYard has enabled us house all performance related information in one place. This makes it easier for managers during the evaluation process and when providing ongoing feedback because all information for the employee is accessible from one location. The PerformYard reminders to managers are helpful as well.

"PerformYard Review "

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed the customer support that we had while getting set up with PerformYard. If we had any questions, Lauren was quick to help us out. She also gave us exceptional training on the platform. We love the platform in general due to the specific nature of our performance reviews. The organization tree is also a major benefit.

What do you dislike?

The only issue I have is that it seems like there are many steps in order to post a review and you have to go into too many areas to create the review. It would be nice if there were less steps.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have never had a performance management system in place before which is great. We also really enjoy that employees have more transparency into company-wide goals that the company holds.

"Fabulous partnership to customize the platform to meet SERA's collaborative culture!"

What do you like best?

Great partnership with Lauren Staley in customizing Performyard to reflect SERA's collaborative culture! The tool is very flexible to allow for unique forms, customized workflows and innovative features to enable continuous, real-time feedback. The goal feature is another positive! The graphic display showing goal progress, the daily reminders and the built-in visibility to studio leaders/managers will help keep us accountable and delivering on commitments. The easy navigation and visually pleasing portal of Performyard align well with our design-focused culture!

What do you dislike?

Currently, Performyard was no ability to customize notifications. Having the ability to tell a staff member who they have been selected for a 360/Peer review or whose review is due would be a nice add

Recommendations to others considering the product

The tool allows tremendous flexibility for different cultures and approaches.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Performyard allows us to consolidate, streamline and automate our current paper-heavy process. We’ve been able to integrate common core competencies, individual job responsibilities, goals, performance ratings, 360/Peer reviews and 1:1 Check-In into one system. This will help us achieve our goal to make the review/continuous feedback process easier and more meaningful for staff.

"Great System and very user friendly."

What do you like best?

I like that the system is easy to use and requires very little setup time to be up and running.

What do you dislike?

Until I became familiar with the system I found some areas of the software to be hard to find where to do a certain thing, such as reopening reviews and or making changes to the reviews. Once I had more training it was an easy thing to get done.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend the product as it is easy to setup and the training is excellent from the company and they are very quick in any issues or questions you have or need help with. Lauren Staley was the best at training me on the system and was quick about answering any and all of my questions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of getting away from excel spreadsheets to do our reviews and moving to a system where everything is streamlined and the the time to do the reviews has been cut in half.

"Great Support - Good Product!"

What do you like best?

Our Customer Success Manager - Lauren - was amazing. She worked as a seamless extension of our in-house team and guided us through every step of the implementation. The product content is solid and the interface intuitive. There are a few smaller areas that can improve, but nothing too significant.

What do you dislike?

The Goal section of the tool does not allow assigning weights to ones goals upfront. As a result, each goal is equally weighted when viewing the progress chart in the goal section. The weights can be added later during the performance review stage (which is not very intuitive).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are rolling-out a new Employee Performance Management System including goal setting and formalized reviews. Over time we will increase the review frequency and are striving to have more of a real-time feedback loop for our employees.

"Performance Management "

What do you like best?

We were looking for a performance management system to go live in about 2 weeks time. Performyard had been on the radar for some time and we went with it. Performyard made it happen with in 2 weeks time. We were able to be set up and able to use the system in the time frame we wanted to do so. Lauren was awesome with the implementation and support. She "held our hand" every step of the way and was there for any questions and responded very quickly via email or phone.

What do you dislike?

Have been using performyard for a couple of months now so nothing to dislike so far

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to put in a performance management system where we can set up quarterly reviews. Year end review was a start and hope to go through with the mid year reviews going forward.

"PerformYard software and support has been great!"

What do you like best?

We needed to implement the software in a short time window and Lauren and Jon were extremely responsive and helpful. The software is easy, intuitive, web based, and the staff and management has used it with minimal questions and issues.

What do you dislike?

Since our organization shares staff across multiple managers and this created a little bit of an issue when multiple supervisors were utilized to author forms or provide feedback. We wanted to give access to the review forms to more than one supervisor (some forms were only viewable by one person). This slowed us down a little when those without access to a certain form wanted to read what the employee or another supervisor wrote. We did work around it and it may be something the team can change in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This sped up the more manual review process, kept everything in one place. It also enabled us to collaborate with other supervisors in other locations on a real time basis. Even though we implemented this after we typically start our process, I think we finished before we typically do. We are also able to gather feedback from firm-wide questions in one easy report.

What do you like best?

PerformYard has allowed us to customize our process to fit our needs. We had lofty goals for providing feedback, and it keeps us on-track.

What do you dislike?

There is a learning curve. The UI could likely use some tweaks to make it more intuitive, but, overall, it works great for us.

"So far, so good!"

What do you like best?

It 's very user friendly for those who aren't necessarily "tech-savvy" which was a big help for our organization as many of our employees fall into that category. From an employer standpoint it's very easy to create and send out surveys/evaluations which is mostly how we choose to use it. Email alerts from PerformYard when certain things need to be done is a nice feature as sometimes there's just too much to remember/monitor alone. Our favorite part of PerformYard is being able to send external surveys to our customers- a very simple way to get feedback on our staff and company.

What do you dislike?

This really isn't a big deal but it is something we wish was different. When sending out our customer feedback survey to external users, we can't format the message that goes along with it at all. We have a template that we use which explains to the end user what this survey is and why they're receiving it. They get the message right in the email that contains the link to the survey. It would be nice to be able to break these messages into paragraphs, and possibly even be able to bold/italicize words within it. Right now it sends as just one, long paragraph.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Part of our review process includes the employees completing self-evaluations. We really wanted to increase our participation with that as many members of our team would refuse to complete theirs. After implementing PerformYard our participation went up from about 50% to 90%

"HR "

What do you like best?

All the features it provides, real time reports and being paperless online anyone can have access at anytime and the goals completion is a good visual for the employees and employer as well as the message center and agency wide goals. Customer service was great at the beginning and still continue to help during implementations always willing to help and understand their clients. Also, very good at doing meetings for managers at the initial setup and sending the materials.

What do you dislike?

At time platform can be confusing, sometime you need to take couple steps to delete a goal its user friendly but at the same time employees get confused and need additional steps to solve a issue.

"Wouldn't be without it"

What do you like best?

The additional service and training was great! What I really appreciate are the review features. This supports quick check-ins to a comprehensive CEO 360 Feedback processes that even our board members participated in.

What do you dislike?

There are some features that would be useful. Like making all reviews 'visible' at a certain time, as opposed to right away or manually changing their visibility. The reporting is great, but you cannot realise the benefit until you have a reasonable amount of data in the system over a period of time. There are also some features that the platform doesn't have - but it is a single use platform, fantastic for reviews and goals.

"Ideal for performance reviews in labor managed agency"

What do you like best?

The portal itself, its very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the system is not capable of informing us when a review is due without someone here initiating the review notification process, it would be nice that once provided the data that somehow the system would notify the hiring manager that John Doe's review is due, we (HR) have to initiate the review notification process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a very easy system to use, problem free set up, and very simple to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accountability, note tracking; you can access the portal and enter notes on your staff that can be used at the time of the review. This portal is helping us help the Managers have more accessible review process.

PerformYard was customize-able enough to accommodate my company's unique performance review system, something that was hard to find at their competitors. Their support and customer success team is fantastic; I get helpful responses to my questions within a couple of hours.

What do you dislike?

There are some form fields that aren't very useful. It would be great if some of those form fields were able to be customized. Also, it would be helpful to have a way to track and calculate bonuses through PerformYard for companies that use quarterly performance metrics for bonus payouts.

"PerformYard Online Performance Measurement Workflow/Tool"

What do you like best?

Ease of use of the tool. The project manager assigned to us was VERY patient and helpful in helping us set-up our site and develop forms and workflows. We needed remedial assistance :) and she guided us in a way that really lead to a strong outcome.

What do you dislike?

We came from a paper process and implementation team did not have experience with workflow products in the past. It was a bit challenging to understand the way the software works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be comfortable asking questions, have a member of the team that understands databases and workflow.

If you are using O365 accounts to sign in, then there is no way to save the data if the system times out before manually saving.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our performance evaluation process was done on paper before we began using PerformYard. We wanted to make the evaluation process a digital experience.

"Customizable Performance Software with Excellent Customer Services"

What do you like best?

Any time we need help our account manager is there immediately. The best part of our experience with PerformYard is the customer service. Our sales rep is the same person as our account manager so the needs discussed in the beginning of the process are not lost in translation when we become a client. Additionally the software is completely customizable and so it meets 99% of our needs which is generally unheard of when implementing any software.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't much I dislike, I recommend this to every company and public accounting firm I come across.

Recommendations to others considering the product

continue to increase your reporting feature

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to have a performance management process where our employees can report to 10 different people at 1 time and therefore require 10 evaluations simultaneously.

"HR Manager"

What do you like best?

The customer services and assistance I received from Lauren. She was my sounding board in the moment of crisis. I could have not ask for a better partner during the process. She is fantastic! No word to express my gratitude to her.

The goals process was confusing for the people to understand. It will be ideal is the system guide people step by step process or stop them if the goals are not completed before they submit.
