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.

Quantum Workplace Engagement Surveys and Pulses

Overall I really liked what Quantum had to offer. The reports were my favorite part because they were easy to read and present to senior management. Because our sample was low, if one person marked a question low then it dropped our numbers significantly. I don't think the data was normalized--and that might have helped.

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.

  • Some of the items that were available at an additional charge would have been great to use at a lesser cost.
  • The results were broken out into categories, which was great. However for a small company it can be a little too detailed. Because our sample pool is small compared to a large company-I thought our results were not truly reflective of our culture.

I did not have any problems with it. The ease of use was great. If I had a question about anything they would answer it immediately or within a timely manner. They also were one step ahead providing me with information that I would need to know or use. They provide a great product

Very easy system to use. I also like how you can customize your survey to work on certain areas you feel are important at the time. They also provide you with a list of questions you can select from as well as implement any custom questions you feel would be beneficial

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.

I had used SurveyMonkey in the past with another employer several years ago. The survey questions used were not great and did not measure what it is we were looking to obtain. At that time, it was also not really user-friendly, but again, this was awhile ago so I am sure they have updated their software since then.Quantum was provided to us free (basic use) from our chamber--which is why we used it. However now that I have experience with Quantam, I will definitely use it again.

Return on Investment

  • Improved awareness of employee strengths and weaknesses
Ellen Spara profile photo
  • Quantum did help us identify areas we need to focus on in increase employee engagement. Some of the areas we already had a suspicion about, but others were new. We are really glad we did this.
  • By simply using an employee engagement survey our employees felt like they had a voice. This exercise was to show our workforce that we are listening and want them to enjoy working at our company. Just by our workforce knowing that we were taking an interest in their feedback helped boost morale.
  • The survey results aided the management team in creating initiatives to increase employee morale. Some of these initiatives were very simple, for example, our employees love company luncheons. Some initiatives are more challenging which will have to be measured over time. Regardless, we have a plan in place and that is the first step.
