SilkRoad Performance overview

What is SilkRoad Performance?

SilkRoad Performance (WingSpan) is a performance appraisal and goal management software for assessing and developing talent. SilkRoad Performance includes features for appraisals, 360-degree feedback, compensation, goal management, succession planning and employee development. The app provides a single platform to store all goal assessments, development plans, and reviews, and to analyze and report on this data.

With SilkRoad Performance you can create regular appraisal review forms, adding your own custom fields and importing pre-existing goal data. You can gather feedback not only from managers, but also from team members, customers and external collaborators. The SilkRoad Performance dashboard lets you set up configurable workflows, see an average assessment ratings comparison, as well a strength and weakness gap analysis. You can use the app to define and qualify employee goal objectives, create succession and development plans, and link performance to compensation.

Silkroad Performance

Used occasionally for 2+ years
Reviewed 2017-11-16
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
We use Silkroad Performance for our annual review process. It breaks it down by our designated objectives. When the beginning of the year starts, we input our objectives for the year. For mid-year review, we rate how we are doing versus those objectives. We can alter or change them if necessary. Then at year end, our manager can input his review and ours. That gives us an overview to discuss how the employee did at the end of the year. It will send an email when items are due to enter into the system. It works pretty well for us.

Cons
Some of the categories we use are not very helpful. I don't think that is a system limitation, but a limitation of our creativity and how we are using it.

Easy documentation of employee progress and goal setting.

Pros
I love the journal feature! I was able to document daily my personal progress as well as my personal struggles throughout the year. I was able to view all my journal entries at the end of the year and read about my progress, and so could my supervisor. Not only can you document your progress in the journal, but through your goal setting. I love to set goals, and this is a very easy way to track them and stay honest with myself about if I've actually met them or not. I liked the detail of the employee review, which I'm sure has customization for the users needs. I was able to go through it and honestly document how I think my job performance is going. The system keeps records of all your past reviews from both yourself and your manager.

Cons
Sometimes there is an issue with goal setting. Only administrators can edit the goals once they are set, which doesn't allow much room for mistakes. I wish that there were more features that were changeable from a user standpoint, not just the administrators.

Wingspan - job performance review

Reviewed 2016-10-28
Review Source: Capterra

I'm not a big fan of WingSpan, but that might be because of our organization. WingSpan gives us a space to create our objectives for the year or quarter. Then at mid-year and end of the year, we can track our progress towards those objectives. We must create 3 to 5 objectives and then track our progress throughout the year. Once we have our objectives created, our manager will be able to see them and approve them or ask to change certain parts about them. These documented objectives will go to HR and be part of our goals for the year. Entering the information is not difficult, neither is sending them onto your manager. Having all your objectives in one place is great. That way you don't have to try and find them as your progress throughout the year. A lot of time and energy needs to go to this information - WingSpan looks very vanilla, but maybe it's our organization. It gets the job done, but not a lot of bells and whistles or even anything to make it interesting or not so plain looking.
