Performance management software FAQs

Performance management software can be a useful tool for any type of business with a growing team of employees.  Whether they are based in one office, across many locations, or working remotely, you can keep on top of managing performance to help your people succeed.

Software for performance management can be an especially powerful tool for medium-sized businesses, growing organisations, and big companies with many managers and large, complex teams. A fair and consistent approach to appraisals, professional development, and rewards is crucial so staying on top of this with reliable software can alleviate the challenges of people management at scale.
