Bridge is committed to ongoing innovation to meet evolving workforce demands. You ask, we listen. That’s why we’re strengthening our performance management offering and creating more ways to meet your people’s needs.
Performance Management That Supports Your Vision With a More Robust Set of Tools
While our core mission and vision haven’t changed, we’ve fine-tuned our offering to create an even more powerful and flexible platform that’s simple to use and meets customers’ needs.
The ability to use Bridge’s performance management system by itself or with our LMS brings greater possibilities to drive employee development, connect your organization to deeper insights, and weave growth and performance into every aspect of your culture.
We’ve bolstered our existing performance management tools and developed a set of new ones to help you support your people’s development with increased agility, visibility of talent, and ongoing connection. Setting and tracking goals, enabling cross-functional collaboration, and recognizing accomplishments are quicker and more efficient processes.
What’s more, our performance management system increases your capability to connect your data with existing insights, unlocking more relevant goal-setting and talent review outcomes as a result.
Bridge’s enhanced performance offering strengthens all aspects of the performance review process with a greater focus on the following:
- Goal setting
- Performance conversations
- Talent reviews
- Continuous feedback

How Bridge's Performance Management System Helps Organizations Create Deliberately Developmental Cultures
Bridge’s performance management offering is leveling up the following features to support this development-centric vision and enable growth. Here are three ways we do this.
1) Strengthen Lines of Communication With Performance Conversation Enhancements
Conversations aren’t one-way discussions, and it’s in the back and forth between manager and employee that an accurate measure of performance, progress, and growth can be made. With continuous feedback, managers and employees build better relationships.
One of the most significant parts of a performance management plan comes in the form of improvements to performance reviews and conversations. While skills feedback and one-on-ones are usually initiated by the manager for employees, enhancements to performance conversations drive a culture of communication and give individual teams the agility and capability to manage and promote ongoing discussion.
Improvements to our existing product and the introduction of a 360 performance review tool allows your teams to make performance conversations regular, drawing on individual, peer, and manager feedback.
With increased transparency and an intuitive experience, you can streamline processes, making recognition, goals, and feedback ongoing, and an employee can orchestrate conversations. It also gives each team additional autonomy to manage its performance process, as these conversations can also be managed centrally by an admin.

2) Give Employees the Power to Recognize Peer Achievements
As part of our mission to support deliberately developmental organizations, we’re making it easier to encourage growth and boost performance with affirming feedback. How, you ask? By integrating a full-scale recognition and rewards tool into the platform.
Our enhanced tool gives employees a greater sense of ownership in their development and a helping hand in supporting their peers. Your people can offer positive feedback to each other, and connect and interact via a newsfeed to see who’s being praised and the skills they’re being recognized for.
Not only can this recognition feed into performance conversations and create a more transparent and rounded view, but it’s also an effective way to increase visibility across the business and create stronger ties of engagement between peers.

3) Enable Development and Growth With Intelligent Automation and Reporting
Behind the scenes, our increased focus on upscaling capabilities and fine-tuning the user experience allows your organization to reinforce a culture of connection, trust, and support.
Bridge’s tools enable more intentional development conversations, leading to a closer alignment of goals. With better visualization of people and growth, you’ll get an instant snapshot of your organization’s goals, how frequently conversations are happening, and the progress your people are making.
The easy-to-use interface and seamless user experience tie your performance management offering to skills and talent development outcomes. Keep employees connected with an ecosystem that makes the performance management process fast and seamless, and use integrations with your existing workforce systems to integrate data and analytics.
It’s easier to provide visibility on goals, recognition, and feedback. By connecting your tools and communication platforms, pulling your data together, and using mobile and in-app notifications, you can keep your organization aligned.
