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.

Eightfold

Looking at Eightfold from a holistic approach, it is an essential tool for a fast growing company (ideally Mid-Market to Enterprise) to utilize this technology. By having access and the ability to search for previous applicants or candidates through our pre-existing pool, is a game-changer. As a company continues to grow, one will need to think of different avenues to find your next batch of employees - why not start with a group that has already engaged with your brand in the past.

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.

  • Integration with our ATS (Greenhouse) and other social media outlets (LinkedIn)
  • Cross-functional ability to build drip campaigns and allowing the platform to do a lot of back lifting
  • Accessibility for Hiring Managers to use a portal for existing candidates

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.

  • They could improve with integration across all features within ATS, CRMs, etc. Whenever you send out messages through Eightfold, it does not show that in other CRMs, ATS' - it pulls information from them but it does not export it back to those channels.
  • Calibration on candidate skills, profiles, education, etc. need improvement. They still pull current employees at our company and others who are in process - thus creating a lot of confusion from a Talent Acquisition side.
  • User Experience does need some additional help - but it's a work in progress.

Alternatives Considered

Both EchoSpan and the other vendor supplied comparable products, so the major difference was the cost involved. EchoSpan is much more affordable and offers a very similar quality of report.

We elevated both Eightfold and Entelo on the premise of looking into our past applicants/candidates and how they would help us achieve our hiring goals. They both have a great reputation and what they can do to help solve your hiring needs, but we essentially went with Eightfold because of their ability to hit our needs. Entelo was focused on utilizing their entire platform (similar to LinkedIn's strategy) on having a network. Eightfold works well by re-engaging with our current and past applicants versus going into the entire market pool.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.

  • One positive impact is re-engaging with past applicants.
  • Creating a better candidate experience by utilizing our company brand.
  • If you can look at hiring more than 10% of your workforce through this, it'll be worth the cost.
