Threads Culture is an HR solution that enables users to measure employees against the business’ core values as well as goals unique to each employee’s position to identify who is adding to and who is detracting from company culture.
Threads Culture enables capture of self, peer and 360 feedback to help teams communicate throughout the year, not just at review time. Each business can define their culture based on key values, and the specific goals or standards for each job description. During hiring and later the review process, team members who work according to the core values and achieve their goals are rewarded for supporting and contributing to the culture of the company.
All employee profile pages contain contact information, personnel documents, and access to past reviews. New reviews can easily be created and added to each profile as the employee makes progress within the organization.
The solution is available with a monthly subscription and training and coaching are included.

We are working to streamline our performance evaluations. Threads has not only allowed us to more consistently evaluate our team members but they have created a tool that allows us to incorporate our company's values into these evaluations which helps to reinforce what we are working to accomplish as a firm. Haven't found this tool elsewhere
Not only is the software an incredible tool for performance evaluation, but whenever our team experience technical difficulties, the Threads team was immediately responsive and worked with us to get things up and running. Not only is the product superior, the customer service is unbeatable.
We continuously work to keep up with updates

At RedPeak, we are a smaller company that highly values culture and its effect on long term retention. We searched for almost a year and evaluated a number of options, most of which were simply too cumbersome, formal and/or elaborate for our needs. Then we came across THREADS. Since I had done all the research and made the case for the switch, I was a bit nervous as to how it all would come together. Adjusting to new software, as well as, a different approach to reviews can be difficult in a company that values stability and consistency, and I was convinced in the process of completely changing our approach, something would go wrong. Was I wrong? The easiest transition we have made. The software worked, it is uber easy to navigate and the team embraced the new approach, once they understood they had an easy place to provide ongoing feedback on fellow team members. The weekly updates are invaluable, provide real insight to the remarkable recoveries and efforts team members make and potential learning/feedback opportunities that would provide assistance and support. The best part is that kudos/challenges get in front of the CEO, who waits for them each Friday, and has indicated their value. This product is not complicated, it does inspire ongoing peer to peer feedback, and truly helps the team understand the expectation from a culture and results perspective.
How easy it is to provide feedback and understand whether or not we are delivering authenticity in regard to the cultural values promise we make the team.
I have had numerous onsite/field team members indicate they would use the system even more if there was an app.
Seriously, I looked a long time. If you want simplistic, effective and a way to measure a real-time pulse, use THREADS. Make sure you bring the agent in to speak to the group before the roll out as he is very good at establishing buy in and helping the team understand why THREADS works the way it does.

I like the cultural aspect of the software, namely how it intertwines the culture of our company into performance expectations and reviews.
There's nothing we like least at this point.
Look around and review. The cultural aspect put us over the edge on this one. Many of the others were simply the same product repackaged with a different name.

We are a marketing and advertising agency and it is critical that any system we operate in aligns with and supports our culture. Our previous review process also included core values, just as Threads does, and this is one of the many reasons we selected Threads. The build-out was streamlined and quick. We provided our agency infrastructure and job descriptions and Threads took care of the rest, quickly I might add. The system is very easy to navigate within and as our Threads representative said during our training sessions - if you can post on Facebook or send a text, you won't have any trouble navigating within Threads and, administration is just as simple! There is one unique benefit that Threads offers that many other vendors do not, or charge an arm and a leg for, and that is TRAINING. Threads conducted our training at each of our locations, both manager and employee populations, and these sessions were great, so beneficial. Don't overlook this when you are shopping. They charge travel expenses and that's all! This is invaluable as HR can partner with them during that training, which I feel was a significant benefit to our roll-out and agency. Thanks to all including technical support - they are just as great!
There really isn't anything we have come across that we do not like. The system is simple and the functionality is key. Companies are always evolving and Threads has the fluidity to evolve along with us.
Look at the functionality of the system and the ease of the navigation and administration. Not sure you will find another that matches it for the price point! There is no start-up cost with Threads so do not forget about that. We saw high start-up and training fees and that was training only the administrator(s) not actually conducting the training - HUGE!

I found Threads though Software Advice, they were the first product we demoed and I LOVED it. The rest we demoed afterwards didnt stand a chance. We have been looking for more ways to integrate our values into daily life at our company and this fit the bill. We are a mid-sized company as is Threads and I think immediately there were a lot of synergies. We actually did a demo with the CEO of Threads with the CEO of our company, and that was very impactful.
The product is soooo easy to use its ridiculous. Incredibly user friendly. We sprung for the in-person training and the staff really enjoyed it - got great feedback. The CEO is a great public speaker and everyone could relate to what he was preaching. Their customer service is also amazing, if you call them you talk to a real person, and today when I called with a question the CEO himself answered!
Another thing I loved is that Threads never badgered me for the sale. Other vendors I demoed were getting CRAZY calling and emailing me nonstop, but Threads followed up once I think and that was it. And the rest PALED in comparison, I knew from the minute I saw Threads I had to have it.
There isn't really anything, it's quite different from our previous performance review system (which was pathetic to say the least), so outside of staff getting used to the new system, there hasn't been anything bad.
I guess it just depends on what you want. An organization without core values might struggle with this software as that is highly integrated. I'm not sure if there is anything as user-friendly as Threads though, it's so intuitive.
