Our entire agency uses PiiQ by Cornerstone to help conduct our annual performance evaluations (SaaS). Prior to using PiiQ by Cornerstone, Power had never had a formal review process. In fact, many long-term employees claimed they hadn’t had a review in years. Loyalty and longevity beat out innovation and career diversity. Some employees had grown complacent while others, who should have been rising to the top, were being overlooked. People had been in the same roles for decades but weren’t evolving with the changing industry.
Because we are a creative business, we don’t have sales metrics or numbers on which to measure the success of all employees, so evaluating talent can be subjective. It was crucial for us to get the right people in the right seats, develop succession planning and implement organizational change management. And we needed a consistent process to evaluate everyone at the same time in the same way.
