Review Source: Capterra

We introduced Zest in less that one month. But you also should be aware, that this kind of feedback and employee engagement tool have a strong impact to your leadership philosophy and some managers are not very happy to work with feedback from teams and be visible every day in everybody´s mood.

We choose Zest to substitute or appraisals and goal setting procedure. Zest was quickly installed, easy to use and everyone can access via smartphone or tablet.

Until now there is nothing to complain about. Very good support.
