Want a great performance feedback tool? Try Lattice!

Overall Satisfaction with Lattice HQ

We use Lattice as the major software platform for assisting in the establishment, cascading, managing and measuring of progress against established corporate, department and individual goals/objectives. It has proven to be very effective across the enterprise, especially as it relates to the cascading of goals from the top of the organization down to the individual contributor level. Most recently, we've had managers start to use the "check-in" feature, which allows for a real-time assessment of where people stand individually, as a department, or as an organization in our collective progress against established objectives. The transparency Lattice creates is a tremendous resource for the entire C-suite, as we are able to easily drill-down and see any outliers... ensuring we are all continuing to march in the same direction and at the same speed.
  • Lattice helps drive the cascading of goals/objectives down thru the entire organization. (This is crucial, in my experience, as employee engagement is more easily achieved when we can create that "line of sight" for people at all levels of the company.).
  • Lattice creates a living, breathing talent management platform... allowing managers - and employees - to stop worrying about remembering all the great achievements that should be acknowledged during performance feedback discussions. The check-in feature (when used appropriately) keeps employees focused and managers informed.
  • Lattice provides an intuitive performance feedback process/platform, which is configurable to a great degree to meet the needs of our organization.
  • While I am delighted to find that the Lattice platform offers a 360 Feedback, it is a bit rudimentary. No ability to do any statistical analysis of responses/ratings, etc. Would really like to see them beef this area up, as it is a tremendous value add to have as a part of the platform.
  • I'd love to see the Lominger competency library as a standard option to choose from in the set-up. That is (in my experience, anyway) the most-comprehensive competency library available, and would love to be able to access as a standard part of Lattice.
  • On the back-end of the formal performance feedback cycle, I believe those with Admin rights need to be able to have access to ALL forms at all times. We are often asked by managers to go in and make changes or edits once a review has been submitted, and at present, it takes a bit of time to find the workaround. Not an optimal approach.
  • We've achieved greater consistency in our talent management process thru the use of Lattice.
  • Managers spent 1/3 less time on completing the formal performance feedback (evaluation) form than in years past.
  • Employee engagement is improved, with comments from employees directly related to the cascading of Corporate goals.
As one of the first in the country to implement the full SuccessFactors platform (back before they were acquired), I am very familiar with its functionality... and so it is the best-of-breed, from my perspective. (or used to be; no idea what it looks like now that ownership has changed hands twice) In a start-up company, there is simply no way we could afford the SuccessFactors price tag, but Lattice offers similar, basic functionality. That was what we were in need of, and it comes at a fraction of what the other platform used to cost !
I think Lattice is well suited for nearly any scenario... but can see that as we grow, there may come a day when we simply outgrow its capabilities (at least as they stand presently). But for start-ups and small or mid-sized companies, the "bang for the buck" is second to none!
