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.

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.
  • We've been with talentReef nearly 2 years and our last 2 account managers have been great! Support was a concern right after we converted, but we were able to gain an account rep and began weekly calls until all the holes were plugged in.
  • Linking ATS data and onboarding data eliminates the need for the applicant/new hire to enter the same information twice.
  • We're now receiving system emails regarding upcoming new releases, which is helpful.

Cons

  • It would be beneficial if the system automatically reported if an email was returned because of an incorrect address.
  • I wish I could set up new positions without getting account support involved. Once they are initially created though, opening and closing reqs is a breeze.
  • There seems to be a disconnect between what talentReef and Indeed are saying about posting jobs on Indeed.

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.
ADP, Kronos, SAPFor the price, and for what the organization receives, it really is tough to beat talentReef.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed feedback from many employees so certain issues that needed to be dealt with became more transparent.
  • Transition to electronic files was easy and helpful in tracking onboarding forms.
  • Quality applicants are on demand.
