EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

I can't imagine a scenario where it is less appropriate than any other 360 tool. It's easy to use, customizable, and inexpensive. Reports are easy to interpret. Great tool for anyone looking to implement a new 360.

It is well suited for sending out and tracking onboarding documents for new hires. It also allows for integration into the I9 system. One area of improvement would be for a mobile platform to be integrated so new hires can complete paperwork on the go on their mobile phone or tablet

Pros

  • Competency library is robust - includes pretty much any competency that you would need
  • Excellent customer service, both online (demonstrations of how to) and via phone/email
  • Completely customizable - different targets can have different competencies, rater types, rating scales, etc.
  • Background checks - user-friendly, quick click to order
  • Candidate visibility - lists candidates chronologically and logs views
  • Locks notes - so you cannot edit after submitting

Cons

  • It took us a little while to figure out how to set up a 360 (we didn't watch the demo videos until later), but once we did, it was very easy to use.
  • Integration into an email, to log all communication in and out of ATS
  • The notes time out too quickly and they don't save or log time
  • Job flow is odd

Alternatives Considered

Reporting, conciseness and detail.
I didn't select this. [The] reason we sought after another ATS, was to get a more efficient workflow.

Return on Investment

  • Self Awareness
  • Better hiring processes
  • Negative - losing notes and unable to remember or refer to
  • Positive - uncomplicated
  • Negative - limited filter points, inefficient
