“We find that focus is really around the great conversations that the manager and employee can have about performance and achieving success for the business. That’s where we got the biggest richness out of the tool”.



We really wanted to bring in a system that would help us recruit and on-board in a consistent manner. The recruitment and onboarding is pretty much seamless now.
