Continuous Performance Management Software

Enabling conversations. Improving performance.

We have helped over a hundred organisations make the shift away from annual appraisals with our expertise and new breed of simple performance management software. Join the movement.

The Clear Review Performance Model

Our technology is all about creating ongoing, meaningful performance and development conversations. This is achieved by leveraging the 3 core pillars of performance management. Goals, Feedback and Conversations.

We understand that once a year, or even quarterly – you need to gather key data about your talent to inform pay and promotion decisions. Talent Snapshots achieves that more quickly and efficiently than admin-heavy appraisal forms.

Simple, powerful technology built to unlock meaningful conversation

Our technology supports your efforts towards building a high performance culture - rather than getting in the way.

Developmental Check-ins

Empower your people with more frequent and meaningful performance and development conversations

'Tick-box' performance systems and processes prohibit meaningful developmental conversations. Clear Review's Check-ins are led by future focused and strengths based coaching questions. They have one goal, to support managers and employees in taking a step back from day to day work to get clarity on what they're focusing on and how they can develop further. One click access to goals, feedback, actions and previous notes helps the dialogue flow.

Agile Goals

Manage both performance and personal development goals with flexibility and ease

Twelve month goals simply don't cut it in today's fast-paced world. Clear Review delivers what your talent demands; an efficient, flexible way of communicating and tracking objectives with built in guidance to ensure quality.

Real-time Feedback

Develop a feedback culture with anytime, anywhere manager and peer to peer feedback functionality

Fair, timely and accurate feedback has been proven to increase performance by up to 39%. It also has a huge impact on employee engagement and discretionary effort. Clear Review provides a simple way of sending and requesting feedback, supported by helpful prompts and guidance to ensure quality.

Talent Snapshots

Gather critical pay, promotion and performance data from your managers with simple survey functionality

Talent Snapshots allows you to survey your managers annually, or quarterly - asking the key questions you need to know about your talent. It makes the usually painful administrative aspect of annual appraisals quick, painless and more effective. You can focus on building a conversation culture, but still ensure you get the information you need to understand your talent population.

Have some questions?

Here are the answers to some common questions. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you need more detailed information.

Our most successful customers did a great job of involving senior stakeholders and the management population during the research and design phase before launching a new performance model. We can help you:

  • Discuss how to go about gathering feedback and information from the management and employee population, including which questions and subjects to probe.
  • We can share learnings from our customer base as to how to pitch the new approach. Where appropriate we can put you in touch with one of our customers who match your size and/or industry.
  • We have a template power-point deck specifically made for HR and Talent leaders to present upwards to the board and/or senior stakeholders. Simply complete certain sections to tailor for your organisation
  • We regularly present to a board/executive meeting to attain final sign-off and ensure the leadership is confident in the new model and platform

We understand there can be a lot to think about, so you need to know exactly what a Clear Review launch looks like and how our passionate and knowledgeable team will support you from signing a contract through to 'go-live'. There are four simple stages:

Preparation: Involves a kick off call/meeting to walk through the implementation checklist and assign actions. This provides clarity on what steps need to happen to achieve launch, and start sharing our experiences of what best-practise looks like.

Training & Communications: For administrators we conduct a two hour call/meeting to familiarise you with the software and answer questions. We provide you with a free off-the-shelf training workshop for managers and employees which includes short videos and an interactive, facilitated session plan. We also provide a twelve month suggested communications plan.

IT & Data: Our team hand holds you through the technical elements such as uploading the users, ensuring Clear Review is working in your environment, adding your logo, setting up single sign on etc.

Configuration: We help you with the configurable aspects of the system. You can either use our standard language and settings, or make changes based on your culture and outcome goals.
