"According to IDC analysis and buyer perception, PeopleFluent is an IDC MarketScape Leader worldwide in performance management in integrated talent management," says Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies, IDC. “The company is a good fit for enterprises that need a sophisticated talent management solution with consumer-grade usability and have strong features for collaboration capabilities.”
This IDC MarketScape study represents a vendor assessment of the performance management capabilities offered as part of an integrated talent management solution through the IDC MarketScape model. PeopleFluent’s Performance Management software makes giving continuous, collaborative feedback simple and intuitive. With mobile feedback and easy recognition, coaching becomes more accessible for busy colleagues, while 360º and multi-rater review turn appraisals into richer development tools. The system’s Anytime Anywhere Feedback capabilities ensure employees feel recognized and developed throughout the year.
The performance report highlights the continued changes in the performance management process over the years with many large brands including companies like GE, Adobe, and Deloitte rethinking and/or eliminating the process all together and moved to a more continuous feedback model. Rowan advises that employers are continuing to look for more ways to continually track and engage on performance.
“We are pleased that we’ve been able to stay ahead of the trends in performance management and have very deliberately made investments that introduce new functionality that support a continuous feedback model,” said Charles S. Jones, CEO and chairman of the board, PeopleFluent. “As Lisa Rowan so astutely says, ‘wise vendors in this market are rethinking their performance management to reflect this drive toward continuous performance.’ We are proud to be recognized as one of the five vendors in the world with best-of-breed capabilities for this very important function.”
PeopleFluent is also recognized in the report for its commitment to innovation and dedicated focus on talent management. The IDC MarketScape also notes the unique strengths of the company’s Mirror suite user experience with its customizable user interface and embedded video and social functionality as a best-of-breed solution rather than an add-on to HR software.
