Rypple: feedback, accomplishment, and goal tracking

Annual performance reviews are so out of date – giving employees frequent, relevant feedback that can be tracked makes improvement realistic.

Giving feedback for any sized company

Working together as a team and receiving timely feedback are two essentials to any healthy, productive, lucrative company. However, many companies opt for the traditional method of providing a performance review once a year. While these annual reviews can be very helpful, wouldn’t it be more helpful for your employees to know where they stand at all times? Rypple provides you a way to provide that essential feedback, while keeping track of accomplishments, goals, progress made on any given project, and even important work-related conversations between employees. Rypple creates a completely collaborative work environment that can take your small business to the next level.

One of the best ways to keep a small company alive is through fervent interaction with all those employed. While it’s important to have employees that can work with minimal supervision, it’s also important to have employees that can work together professionally. Because many employees have the same goal when it comes to a larger project, there needs to be an easy way to communicate and collaborate while still maintaining productivity and focus. Rypple allows you to assign goals and projects to your employees and prioritize their assignments so everyone knows what they need to be working on at any given time. Once a goal is achieved, that goal can then be checked off and either shared publicly with everyone else in the company or it can be set to private, which means only the employee and you can see it.

Adios, annual performance reviews

Annual performance reviews are no more, thanks to Rypple. “Feedback works best when people get it right away. Rypple helps managers and their teams get continuous feedback—while the feedback is still relevant.” Instead of merely improving once a year, your employees now have the opportunity to improve constantly and consistently, providing your company with even more internal growth and improvement.

Going along with that, everyone appreciates being acknowledged for their hard work. Feeling valued will ultimately improve employee morale, which will create more loyal, hardworking employees for your brand expansion. When a team achieves their goal or has surpassed expectations, it’s important to give them the kudos they deserve. With Rypple, you can make this public for the entire company to see and post it on the employee’s profile. If the employee prefers to keep these accomplishments private, that’s possible, too.

Rypple also allows employees to chat through their platform and save important conversations for later reference. These conversations can be set to private so that only those who participated in the conversation can view it. If it could be a helpful reference for other workers, you also have the option to make it public. You hold the power and control over every entry’s visibility. Rypple was “designed to build a transparent, results-driven work culture,” so you and your employees can get the job done, achieve important goals, improve professional skills, and enjoy the process along the way– no matter how tiny your business is.
