Prioritize Performance Goals All Year Long with Quantum Workplace

It’s no secret that goals help people and organizations achieve more. But many organizations and teams struggle to make the most of goals, often taking a set-it-and-forget-it approach that coordinates with their annual review cycle. This approach creates a huge disconnect among leaders, managers, and employees.

Only 2 in 10 employees strongly agree that their performance is managed in a way that motivates them to do outstanding work.

Performance goals can be a powerful tool in your organization. But to be effective, they must be thoughtfully created, reviewed, adjusted, and aligned. From goal-setting to goal-getting, it’s important for everyone to be on the same page and in constant communication around performance goals.


Introducing New Goal Conversation Booster by Quantum Workplace

The Goal Conversation Booster (a Quantum Workplace 1-on-1s enhancement) will help managers and employees keep goals and goal progress top-of-mind throughout the year.

Seamlessly integrate goals into 1-on-1 conversations.

No more navigating back and forth between Goals and 1-on-1s. It’s now easier than ever for managers and employees to facilitate continuous goal conversations that fuel performance.

Ongoing goal conversations help ensure that:

    • Goals are still relevant
    • Priorities are crystal clear
    • Obstacles are being removed
    • Progress is happening

Managers can coach employees around obstacles and provide the real-time guidance and development that employees need to succeed.


Empower managers to facilitate thoughtful goal discussions.

Sometimes managers aren’t sure what to ask. Our in-tool Conversation Helpers prompt managers with suggested questions to ignite meaningful discussion around goals and goal progress, such as:

    • What are the best next steps to make progress on this goal?
    • How likely is this goal to be achieved? Why?
    • What obstacles or risks are standing in the way of hitting this goal?
    • What can you start/stop/continue doing to reach this goal?

Make accountability easy with tracked goal conversations.

As managers and employees discuss goals more frequently, it can be difficult to recall those discussions over time. The Goal Conversation Booster allows managers and employees to keep track of action items and discussion points from one conversation to the next.
