BetterWorks is an online professional goal-setting and management solution, scalable to Enterprise-level functionality. From a centralized dashboard, employees, team members and departments can collaboratively create and work towards measurable, quantifiable goals. Designed to motivate, inspire and drive corporate performance, BetterWorks leverages popular business methodologies such as S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound) Goals and OKRs (Objectives and Key Results). Enhanced by Goal Science insights, BetterWorks also promises broad platform integrations with leading enterprise software to enable goal data sharing between applications.
Goal allocation and goal progress is accessible and managed via a rich cloud-based interface, visualizing performance with bars and charts. Set milestones and rapidly track achievements, while adding feedback comments, peer encouragement and attaching scores. Encourage fellow staff and enable colleagues to congratulate peers with social gestures, raising team morale in the process. Plot that wider impact with Goal and Org Charts, establishing the bigger picture within departmental reporting structures. View larger, cross-function goal relationships and search between co-workers to understand progress levels against key objectives. Gain valuable data insights via Operational Dashboards, viewing company-wide progress to identify risk, underperforming departments and engagement statistics.
Connectivity on the move is provided by iOS and Apple Watch app support, facilitating mobile goal access and real-time notifications. Integrations also offer seamless synchronization with popular business platforms, opening up goal updates and data to Salesforce, JIRA and many more. ISO 27001 and Safe Harbor certifications also ensures BetterWorks data remains safe, secure and transparent.
Provides exceptional visibility into the OKRs of large organizations, making it easy to align on strategies with other sibling orgs within the greater org.
UI can be non-intuitive sometimes. Lack of consistency between different UI views, leads to user confusion. Some more walk-thru wizards would help.
- Good promoter of a transparency culture - I like the ability to see the objectives of senior directors and how the rest of the companies objectives are aligned to these.
- The ability to request peer feedback from within the app is very useful - and especially the ability for managers to see.
- There's no functionality to review previous checkins, other than manually clicking into each one. I have weekly checkins with my direct reports and find our checkin notes useful for quarterly performance evaluations - if I could see all of them on one screen or be able to search into them, this would be a big improvement
The ability to track my goals and see how I am growing within my company. This is also helpful to me because I am a young professional and by tracking my goals through betterworks it allows me to quantify my skills so I can list them on my resume.
We just started using Betterworks to track our companies performance management. The thing I like most about Betterworks is the layout that allows me to organize my goals in a comprehensive manner. It also has different methods in which I can track my progress in completing a goal whether that is in a percentage basis, units, or dollar basis. In addition, I can set a goal and then change the due dates of the OKR's so I don't have to complete the whole thing at once.
I wish I could see an organization chart of the entire company and its goals not just my team's org. chart and our goals. I wish there was a better way to link my better works goals with other applications I use. For example, with my Project Management goal, I want to ensure my deliverables are on time but there isn't a good link with ASANA my project management app so I have to track my accuracy manually which is difficult.
Overall, Betterworks is a great tool an entire company can get behind and stay organized within. It helps keep track of high-level company efforts to ensure we remain aligned. I'd recommend this tool to anyone who is thinking about utilizing the OKR model.
Finally, a user-friendly tool that enables teams to track progress on milestones using the OKR model. Some of the great features include:
- Tiered goals
- Assigned goals
- Milestones within goals
- Goal tracking and analytic-based reporting
- Robust on- boarding system
There is a (very) slight learning curve to immediately get started.
An easy way to create new professional development goals for myself
It was easy to get started as a beginner and I liked the very simple training and tips provided when I first logged in. I also love the fact that it gives you a range of view options (including list, chart and dashboard) to fit your individual preferences. It's a nice streamlined user interface that includes just the right amount of clicks to find what you're looking for. I also like the export feature.
It took me a few times to get the hang of moving items after I first created them. It takes some effort to reorganize something for a 2nd or 3rd time.
