"The younger talent and teams love to give and receive feedback. They want constant recognition, feedback on how they're doing and how are things going. They want their work to have meaning and purpose. They want some validation -- that's what HighGround is doing for us and we're very excited about it."
"An engaged workforce is a happy workforce, and a happy workforce is going to be doing their job, they're going to be happy doing it, and they're going to be smiling. And if you've got a happy employee, if your employees are smiling, your customers feel it. They know it."
Jeff Fajans Talent and Organization Development Mgr.
"HighGround offers an integrated solution that really taken our performance and engagement initiatives to the next level. The platform is user-friendly and administrative-friendly, intuitive, clean, simple. The level of customization and flexibility is outstanding, and overall it has been very easy to work with their outstanding customer success team."
Dean Carter Vice President of Human Resources and Shared Services
"We have a system that is real, agile, interactive and human. The language in HighGround is very human. We have a system that emulates the kind of relationship we want employees to have with our customers that's intimate and personal. We feel like we're encouraging that same relationship between our employees and our customers."
"HighGround brings a very unique recognition platform that is a performance management solution as well. It puts these two together-- you can take recognition from throughout the year and apply it to the performance management process."
"HighGround helps leaders know how employees make meaning through their work. Managers can then better give assignments, shape roles, reward and recognize, and coach. For managers who aren’t used to coaching, HighGround is great reminder. It can support people in making the transition from the once a year to continuous feedback."
"Our business grew rapidly and largely through acquisitions. We needed to quickly blend cultures across disparate offices. With a workforce that is 75% millennial, we use HighGround to share the company values and let our employees recognize one another for living out those values. We analyze all the data in HighGround - across goals, recognition and performance - to identify high performing
employees and encourage transparency."
Kim Witt Vice President, Human Resources & Training
"C-level leaders pushing rewards and recognition is valuable to building connections between team members and the organization. [HighGround] starts to answer business problems like turnover, longevity and morale. Having buy-in from the senior level is really important. Leaders are using the tool to build a relationship with their people – you can't put a price tag on that.
"HighGround helps prevent us from living in silos our business units by facilitating communication and recognition. Additionally, recognition that would otherwise have been private is now pubic, allowing the entire team to join in congratulating and recognizing great efforts, both large and small"
