PerformYard, in my opinion, is well suited for any environment where performance management is actively happening. We are in the manufacturing industry and many people here thought that this type of electronic process would never be accepted or adopted. Today we have FULL participation and buy in from all those people and more! This software has revolutionized our ability to perform reviews, efficiency to get them done and delivered to the employee, and taken the burden off HR of having to juggle getting these out to authors every month manually

Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Sage is highly customer focused, with great CSM support. Sage People will be able to integrate with other Sage pillars such as Accounting and Payroll. Read full review Cons Don't really need to have multiple team member selection options in the dashboard. Would be more efficient to drill down from the team member selected rather than have to scroll through the list amongst all other team members data files. Would be nice if contributors could also opine as to the perceived level of performance for the person they are commenting on, i.e., unsat, sat, excellent. Those are my only issues at this time. Read full review Training manuals are not much useful. You always need a helping hand to move forward. When you have to look up employees, we have to provide their job title which I feel is not an efficient way. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It has been excellent among the employees. It is a great way to keep up with the tasks and goals throughout the year. Manager/employee communication can increase with this program. It is very easy to use and understand. Navigation can be a bit tricky but the overall ease of going through it is splendid.

This is one of the best features of PerformYard - it is extremely easy to use and intuitive. There was no learning curve. This is what is so phenomenal about PerformYard. Their layout, while offering so many features, is extremely simple.

The support from PerformYard is unmatched when compared to other systems I have worked with. Not to say that the support personnel always have an immediate answer, but they are so committed to solution and timeliness that it is not long before we are able to work through any issues. Emails are quickly returned for ease of access, and they never fail to offer to hop on a call and visually walk through something if that may help the issue!

Training for PerformYard was fantastic and very easy to understand! I highly recommend this product to any company. It is super helpful for communicating with staff, for keeping track of your goals, tasks and reviews for the current (or past) year. Definitely get online training for implementation. You won't regret it!

Our Human Resources department handled the implementation of PerformYard and they did a fantastic job. A tutorial was sent out via email to all employees with a requirement of viewing it. In additionto that, a ZOOM session was scheduled so that any questions or concerns could be answered after viewing the tutorial.

PerformYard is much more specialized for feedback, where the rest seemed to add it as a lesser feature. I wanted a tool that’s built around making it easier to both give standardized feedback as well as receive and review it. This has helped streamline our practices and inspection on completion is easy as well.

We moved to Sage People from a 20+-year-old internally developed HR software. We also evaluated other HR software such as Kronos, SAP, and BambooHR. Ultimately, we chose Sage because of the extensive support they provided to us and the ability to customize to fit our organization's needs. We loved the fact that they were completely cloud-based and built on a reputable platform (Salesforce).
Read full review Return on Investment It has encouraged me to actually complete goals rather than "almost" complete them because I want to be able to check off the box. Sometimes it's difficult to track goals without clear metrics, however, this might be a positive thing because it encourages the user to create metric-based goals. One positive impact is the impact this program has on extrinsically motivated employees. Read full review Has significantly improved our team resources by having one system and set of processes, rather than managing duplicate entry in multiple systems Has allowed us to finally have a process for ensuring we can approve, manage, track and report employee PTO liability in one system Improved HR Data reporting and Data Analytics for both HR and for managers, so that we can make better people and business decisions Better manager and employee experiences by eliminating paper based request forms and automating workflows Read full review ScreenShots
