Performance Appraisal Reviews

4.5/5 (4 reviews)

Small Improvements is your lightweight solution to dehassle the performance review and to simplify your 360 degree feedback. We help you focus on conversations and relevant feedback, and on actually helping people get better at their work.

And we make it really easy. Many users tell us "it's like updating Facebook" since it's so simple to provide the performance review feedback. It's entirely work-related of course, but users actually like doing their performance review work. See our testimonials on our website for more on that.

In more depth, the product consists of four main modules

Performance reviews are only between you and your manager. HR can schedule these official reviews as often as they like, even at irregular intervals if necessary. We recommend 2 to 4 reviews per year, since it makes each individual review cycle lighter. Avoid yearly reviews if you can!

Leading up to the official performance review, you can set up 360 degree reviews: Each person may nominate some people to provide feedback. The manager can approve or modify the reviewer list, and then the coworkers get notified by the system to provide feedback. HR can define if the feedback should be anonymous or not, and define deadlines too of course. The feedback can be delivered straight to be employee, or to their manager, or to both. It can be used for the official review, but it can also be used to help people get feedback "just like that", e.g. outside official review times.

The Continuous Feedback module resembles typical microblogging services like Yammer. You may use it to share news (e.g. if you have no microblogging solution yet), and you can of course also use it to discuss ideas or share feedback just like that. All feedback can be easily get filtered during the next review, so it's never lost. Also, you may take notes (e.g. from your 1:1 meetings) for later reading and assessment.

The fourth module helps you write and organise goals and personal objectives. Goals can be private, but it's also possible to share your goals, thus letting others provide feedback and help you achieve those goals faster (or tell you if there are better goals!)

The entire system is hosted for you, so there's no complicated setup. You can use it for free for 10 users permanently, and you can use up to 50 seats for a month or two to evaluate properly.

We support all major browsers from IE7 to Firefox and Chrome, even Opera and Safari.

Happy to give you a Skype screensharing presentation if you're interested. Just send us a mail!

I use Small Improvements to manage the objectives of my software development team. I use the Objectives and Key Results (OKR) method, which works pretty well with Small Improvements. I just list the key results in the description of the objective. The comments can then reference one of the key ...

Key Features of Small Improvements

  • 360 Degree Feedback
  • Performance Reviews
  • Continuous Feedback
  • Social Networking
  • Microblogging
  • Goals and Objectives


Small Improvements is easy to use, affordable and pretty. We spend a lot of time on user testing, and listen closely even to the lowliest employee -- not just to "decision makers". Our key strength is that evaluators like the system so much, they really want HR to pick this tool and not the others being evaluated. Period.

Simplicity is important for you in HR as well, since most people don't actually enjoy performance reviews. We're making sure that at least the software is fun to use, thus give people time to focus well on what they say, how they say it, and to prepare for the actual performance review meeting.

Innovative companies like Atlassian, Modcloth and Quiksilver are using Small Improvements already, but we're also targeting smaller companies, we even love non-profits. Testimonials are available straight from our website.
