Which challenges did you want to solve by introducing Leapsome?

  • We wanted to replace the previous performance review process: a paper-pencil process, extremely time-consuming and annoying for everyone involved. Because of the negative feelings towards the old process, feedback in general wasn’t really valued.

What has your experience been with implementing Leapsome?

  • Implementing Leapsome happend very quickly, since with Leapsome we had finally found the right tool after having searched for and tested various other providers.
  • Introducing Leapsome was supposed to basically happen overnight, which worked out well with the support of the Leapsome team. We were ready to use the system after only a very short time span.
  • Additionally, Leapsome provided valuable assistance in how our existing processes could be realised with the tool.

What changes have you seen across the company?

  • Communication is more open, our goals are more transparent and much more present in the company. This is very helpful to actively work on the goals.
  • Finally, the focus is no longer on the time-consuming process, but instead on the review talk and the feedback itself.
  • The HR team has much less work to do, and at the same time is provided with more transparency and people analytics. They are a great start to work on strategic HR topics.

What do you like best about Leapsome?

  • We needed a tool that works for Berlin, London and NYC - Leapsome is great for this!
  • The various modules and features are a big plus, as well as the flexibility - other providers would never have been able to adequately depict our performance review process within the tool.

What would you say to those considering starting with Leapsome?

  • Leapsome is way ahead of other providers and extremely adaptable to the needs of the German labor market.
