Performance Management Product Comparison - HighGround

But standard performance management processes are burdensome, ineffective and aren’t producing results for companies. Recent research reveals 92 percent of companies believe their current performance management processes fail to create high value.

It’s time for a new approach to performance management. Employees, managers and HR professionals need an intuitive, user-friendly platform that allows them to transition from backward-looking performance reviews to real-time, development-focused conversations. Companies need an integrated performance and engagement solution that supports workforce success and growth, delivering value across organizations.

There’s no shortage of available solutions in the employee engagement space. And with seemingly endless options, it can be overwhelming for companies to carefully sift through competitors. To simplify the research and selection process, we’ve curated a list of performance management products to help you evaluate and compare solutions before selecting the platform best suited to your enterprise needs.
