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.

Globoforce

Globoforce is good for organizations that are growing and want to be able to keep morale high and also want to allocate a specific budget for each manager to reward their employees who do exceptional jobs on assigned or additionally requested work. It is less appropriate for organizations that are bootstrapped for funds, or already have great methods of rewarding their employees in unique and meaningful ways.

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.
  • Globoforce makes the process of rewarding employees who do a great job easy for managers and leaders internationally
  • Globoforce helped me write kind electronic thank-you notes that came through to their inboxes in great, simple formats
  • Globoforce was great in showing clear options on what exactly I could use the eGift Card for from doing a great job on certain projects

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
  • Globoforce’s user interface was a bit dated - having a sleeker user interface will make it more adopted by many managers
  • Globoforce sometimes only worked in specific internet browsers for me - not sure if this is the case for others in other organizations
  • Globoforce didn’t fill the entire internet browser screen when I used it, making it occasionally difficult to read

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.

Return on Investment

  • Improved awareness of employee strengths and weaknesses
  • Globoforce helped me provide a faster way to send a meaningful thank you note to my colleagues via email as opposed to mailing it and expensing the shipping for each note
