Responding to customer demand, Zenefits adds native performance and engagement features, launches Zenefits Connect for third-party talent apps

San Francisco, Oct. 11, 2017 – Zenefits today announced plans to broaden its People Platform with deeper talent functionality designed for today’s modern workforce. Tightly integrated with its suite of HCM apps and building on its market-leading employee onboarding capabilities, the new features will help small and medium-sized businesses get started with talent management initiatives easily and cost-effectively.

Combining HR, Benefits, Payroll, Time, and Compliance products with high-quality service and technology partners, Zenefits’ People Platform delivers unrivaled flexibility and functionality to thousands of customers. Zenefits’ employee workflows help streamline and automate busy work and give employees more direct access and control over their HR information.

“Many of our customers have asked us to build agile performance reviews, feedback, check-ins and employee engagement capabilities into the Zenefits platform,” said Lisa Reeves, SVP of Product at Zenefits. “Like other Zenefits apps, we are building this from the ground up as a tightly integrated component of our overall platform that leverages the employee system of record.”

Zenefits’ new functionality will feature flexible performance reviews, allowing managers to create a variety of review types from customizable templates for goal setting, annual, 360, self/manager review, quick feedback, and the like. Managers can easily track team review progress through a simple dashboard, and employees and co-workers can complete reviews and provide feedback from their mobile devices.

“We understand there is no one-size-fits-all solution and many companies require deeper capabilities. With Zenefits Connect, customers who need a deeper level of talent functionality can tap into our ecosystem of partner solutions for talent acquisition, performance, development, and engagement/retention,” continued Reeves.
