Performance Review Pro has been developed by a Brighton based company, HowToMotivateATeam Ltd, and that is exactly what it does. It works alongside existing HR software and process to survey your team and identify exactly where you need to focus to engage and motivate them.
Why is this important? Well there is a lot of research that clearly shows that a motivated and engaged team is more productive, happier and more profitable.
Continue reading this Team insights review for more information on this web-based program.
The Performance Review Pro website gives you access to the web-based 'Team Insights' software for better staff performance. All the tools and analysis will be done online, and can be accessed from any computer or device.
With this system, you will increase your employee engagement, increase productivity as a result of the better motivation, focus on any wasted effort and be able to see the results of the changes you have made. It is very simple to use the pre-built survey.
Performance Review Pro identifies the factors which are having a negative impact on motivation, so you and the team can replace them with positive ones. Rather than being a staff survey the questions help you understand what you can do as a manager to improve the environment in which your team are working to help them flourish and deliver the best possible performance for your business.
Any professional working in a supervisory role (supervisors, team leaders, trainers, managers, directors, HR directors and CEOs) will benefit from using this employee engagement software. It will help them understand in clear terms why their team are not performing as they should!
Your team will suddenly come into focus as you have a clear picture of how best to engage and motivate them and increase productivity in the process. Any busy manager, director or supervisor can get clear Team Insights with minimal effort on their part.
You're a busy professional and don't always have time to analyze what your employees are doing and how to effectively motivate them. Performance Review Pro can do this for you.
This includes improving the performance of your employees and team members by understanding how to engage them. This will increase your profitability, reduce staff churn and reducing your recruitment costs, reducing the stress and anxiety of your team and increasing productivity by reducing absence and sickness.
If you would like to try Performance Review Pro, you can do so by signing up for their free trial and send a free team survey.
You don't have to commit to anything to use the trial - no credit card details are required and you get access to the whole product. After you sign up and activate your account by clicking the link in your email, you will be taken to the First Time Wizard. This helps guide you through the set-up process.
To build your team, click on "Build My Team." From here, you will be able to add up to 500 email addresses in one box. This invites all of them at one time and saves you hours of time as you don't have to invite them individually.
If you want to start new active surveys, you will need to purchase credits through PayPal. To do this, click on "New Active Surveys" at the top of the page and follow the instructions to purchase more credits. With a new account, you start with two credits.
After setting up your account, you will also be able to manage active surveys, view your action plan and view your team dashboard.
Like anything you try, there will be pros and cons to any software.
The only real disadvantage I found was having to purchase credits for certain aspects of the program. However this is a very small disadvantage when compared to all the benefits it gave me. Some of the best features of Team Insights are the graphical and colorful dashboard with graphs, seeing how your team compares to other teams, the custom action plan and the helpful email notifications of the results and survey progress.
If you are looking for a way to increase productivity and improve the motivation and engagement of your employees then Performance Review Pro is well worth a trial - it will undoubtedly tell you something you did not know about your team.
