    Strategy execution software for mid-market organizations unveils new Job Scorecards and Performance Conversation Report.

    Charlotte, NC, October 28, 2015 - Rhythm Systems, provider of the industry’s only solution that combines patented strategy execution software with management consulting for mid-market organizations, today announced its new “High-performance Teams” features, aimed at improving employee engagement and providing business performance breakthroughs. The new software features provide a better way for managers and employees to review individual and team performance in order to develop top talent and drive business execution.

    According to Gallup’s “State of the American Workplace” report, nearly 70 percent of the United States’ 100 million full-time workers are disengaged or miserable at work – a direct result of poor management. What’s more, a recent Deloitte survey found that more than half of respondents (58 percent) believe that their current performance management approach doesn’t drive employee engagement or high performance.

    Traditionally, employee performance has been discussed and documented in annual reviews, which are burdensome and ineffective for managers and employees alike. To develop employees’ strengths, keep them engaged and help them succeed, companies must transform the way they provide feedback on performance. Deloitte, along with other Fortune 500 firms such as Accenture, GE and Microsoft, realized they needed a more flexible, real-time and individualized approach to performance reviews.

    Rhythm Systems’ “High-performance Teams” features give managers a better way to discuss performance, in order to ensure employees are accountable and own their career development. The features include:

    Job Scorecards: A coaching guide to provide role clarity and improve accountability. They help managers set expectations and metrics for each employee, as well as identify opportunities for development and improvement. Job scorecards improve accountability and provide an easier way for managers to give timely feedback on job performance so they can focus their teams on the right things to grow the company every day.

    Performance Conversation Report: An automated report based on each employee’s job performance. The report can be exported so both employees and managers can fill out information about the employee’s performance to guide a conversation on what’s working and what needs improvement.

    “For years, we have been advocating and conducting regular performance conversations internally, rather than annual performance reviews,” said Patrick Thean, CEO and co-founder of Rhythm Systems. “The ‘High-performance Teams’ features are our way of offering the benefits we have experienced internally to all of our clients. We’re excited to help transform how companies encourage their employees to be more accountable and succeed.”
