EchoSpan 360-Degree Feedback Tool

As a 360 assessment it rates very well when compared to our previous vendor. 360-Degree Feedback is more affordable so it allows departments to avail themselves of the opportunity to help their team members learn more about themselves, which would have been cost-prohibitive with our previous vendor.The support department has been FANTASTIC! Quick responses on all any small issues and easy to work with for customizing templates. The system allows us to add rater groups and increase the group sizes easily.

PeopleMatter is well suited for location based, hourly hiring, and I would highly recommend it for onboarding in any scenario. It is not well suited today for corporate or professional recruiting. The onboarding and compliance components serve all audiences very well.

Pros

  • EchoSpan was extremely supportive in the initial training portion and is extremely quick to offer support when required.
  • Filled our request for customization and were easy to work with.
  • Excellent on-line training videos

  • PeopleMatter is a very intuitive and easy to use hiring and onboarding solution, with particular strength in serving the retail store environment and the challenges associated with hourly workers.
  • PeopleMatter is highly customizable for the store environment. With an easy workflow and custom assessments, store managers have gained time back to focus on driving sales, and higher quality candidates have led to reduced turnover and shrink results.
  • The team at PeopleMatter is top notch to work with, from implementation to support.

Cons

  • Easier interpretation
No photo available
  • PeopleMatter is a leader in store hiring for retail, restaurant and hospitality. The corporate solution is not fully built out, creating the need to modify hourly workflow in the professional hiring space.
  • While the system is highly customizable, one workflow has to accommodate all areas of the organization. All locations and functions don't operate the same, so it is a clunky process.

Customer support and the cost of the product would be my number one reasons. Customer support is fantastic!

I would just say make sure you really think about how you are setting up the product. Are you using the roles correctly? Can we automate any processes

Alternatives Considered

I've seen or used several of the other 360 tools. EchoSpan is better in nearly every way. It is more customizable. It can be administered completely by someone internally, so no need to request someone to set up a 360 - you can just do it yourself. Competency library is great, and you can create others if you want to. Reports are easy to interpret. Very good customer service

Seriously, it's the onboarding that sets PeopleMatter apart from the rest. Every payroll company I have ever met with always says their service can work for what we need and replace PeopleMatter. However, they never can link our applications to their site, provide a way to search through candidates, schedule interviews, and allow the new employees to complete their documents the way PeopleMatter does.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
Michelle Martfeld profile photo
  • We doubled our tax credits in the first 2 years - more than $800,000.
  • It has opened a larger applicant pool - we gather more than 500 apps each week and the assessments help us begin with the best candidates
  • LEARN has allowed us to provide consistent onboarding and orientation to every new employee upon starting work versus waiting for the next available training class! Getting qualified people trained and to work faster
