Performance Management helps organizations establish cascading goals that align with departments, teams and individuals. Managers can monitor team goals from a single dashboard, employees can add their own goals, and SMART metrics can be applied to help track progress, results, and other activity. The platform supports a variety of methods to assess the goal achievement including numeric ratings, descriptive indicators color scales, descriptors and/or written feedback.

Pros

EthosEnergy’s experience with TalentGuard's Performance Management module has been successful. We are happy that we selected TalentGuard rather than some of the larger players within the market space. The value the product created far outreached our expectations. TalentGuard’s high-touch Customer Success team went above and beyond to ensure we had a smooth onboarding and launch experience. My success manager actively collaborated with us to configure our program and efficiently handled many of our set-up tasks. I would recommend using this tool because it offers deep functionality at an affordable price point and the Customer Success Team is truly focused on our success.

Cons

The customer support team is great at finding creative ways to work around some of the product limitations, but there still are product limitations. Be prepared to alter your process slightly to fit their design.
