What I like about Threads Culture is its unique approach to performance evaluations and culture reinforcement with a special emphasis on core values and results based on each individual contributing to the effectiveness of the organization. Threads' approach alligns perfectly with my belief that the most effective way to improve any organization is by improving the organization's culture. I appreciate how Threads' evaluates employees on core values and results seperately rather than averaging both scores together. My personal favorite feature is its "Feedback" module allowing for 360 degree feedback company wide -- giving all employees a voice on how their co-workers perform at work.
- Easy to use
- Phenomenal customer service
No negative comments. Threads' takes pride in continuously improving its solution according to customer feedback.
The main business problems solved by Threads Culture in my organization are:
- A lack of an evident, portrayal of shared core values in all of our team members, and thus lack of a commonly agreed upon shared company culture.
- Lack of accountability of team members
- Satisfaction with the status quo of some team members due to complacency
- Lack of an effective way to evaluate the contribution of individual team members.
- Inadequate employee engagement and recognition
Our company has been using Threads for our review portal for a year now. As a manager responsible for multiple team member reviews, Threads allows me to be able to rely on other team members feedback to make the most of our annual reviews. This portal allows team members to either give a shout out for something that one of my team has done or be able to give confidential, constructive criticism which helps me mentor if something needs tending to. At review time, I am able to reflect back on those comments to be able to conduct a meaningful review. I also enjoy being able to share those positive feedback comments to my direct team members every Friday when Threads releases them to me. It is uplifting for all involved.
Other than getting to know a new system, I'm not seeing any negative. The portal allows confidentiality where it is needed and alerts a direct manager and our HR administrator of any issues sooner than later.
Give it a try....the benefits of having ALL team members able to weigh in and give confidential feedback helps managers access how things are going.
Threads allows comments to be made as they happen, rather than waiting or trying to remember at review time. One of the goals that my team adopted was to make two Threads comments for ANY team member every month. They have seen the benefit - especially when I am able to release the positive comments that have been made about them.
I really like the ability of combining culture and job performance when evaluating a team member. All other platforms I looked at only focused on job performance. They were missing half the picture! Threads Culture does a great job of combining the two.
I would like for the ability of other team members to view positive feedback that was given to them. People like to be recognized for a job well done.
If you want a platform that combines job performance and culture performance, this is the platform for you.
An easy way for our managers to evaluate team members on job performance and how well they fit in our culture
At CNS, our purpose is to improve rural broadband. We've always been focused on that but, had never had it so narrowly defined as we were able to do with the use of Threads Culture platform. Our structure is non traditional with employees throughout MN, ND, and MI. Some folks report to our HQ, their home, car, hotel or remote office. In order for us to all stay connected and maintain our purpose, it takes diligent work. We're able to create, define, and communicate our core values effectively with Threads. Our core values are at the center of everything we do now including our interviews, meetings, emails, branding and, now, our annual reviews. The platform is simple to use and you really can't beat the good ol' Midwest Customer Service. The crew at Threads genuinely cares about incorporating the sometimes 'hidden' values and bringing them to the forefront. And, like us, they like to have fun with their work. Ben, Kim, Teresa and Sean are all top notch (as I'm sure are others but, that's who I work with most often). If you want your folks to be inspired by your purpose day in and out start thinking about your culture, define it, and roll it out with an engaging presentation from Sean with Threads.
Have yet to run into anything the folks at Threads won't assist with or update right away.
We've been able to review folks based on how intertwined with our culture and core values instead of just 'technical' pieces of their work. We've made a more well-rounded review process.
It's very easy for managers and employees to use and has enabled us to have it all electronic, providing easy access for future reference. Our CEO loves the fact that he can get instant information on individuals, departments or the entire company related to performance. We also love that this software ties in values as well as results. And the feedback tool is fantastic. Our employees have really embraced this.
One thing we'd like to be able to do is print the org chart. .
We needed a simple solution to getting managers to review employees without bias and also have the data saved in a way we could access and analyze at any time- this does that.
