  • How Big Data Can Take the Pain Out of Performance Reviews
    Twitter uses UltiPro Perception to make sense of what it calls large open-ended qualitative datasets, in an effort to ‘better understand its employees, Shane McCauley, director of people systems and analytics at Twitter, told Fortune in an emailed statement. McCauley went on to say that this level of analysis had been, prohibitively arduous in the past, but that UltiPro Perception finally made it possible.

  • How Do Employees Really Feel About Their Companies?
    To glean more from its data, Intel earlier this year decided to try UltiPro Perception, that uses languageprocessing and machine-learning algorithms to decipher emotions from text. The program analyzes the language workers use in open-ended survey questions and in blog posts to determine their underlying emotions, including frustration, disappointment or anger.

  • Ultimate Acquires Perception: War for Feedback Systems Begins
    This acquisition is significant, because it shows that these tools are no longer a standalone market: they are now being embedded into core HR and ERP systems. Ultimate Software is a successful, fast-growing provider of mid-market HR platforms, and their research shows that over 75% of their customers will pay extra for this type of product.

  • The Algorithms That Tell Bosses How Employees Are Feeling
    Twitter, for example, hired UltiPro Perception to analyze employees’ responses to regular surveys about their workplace experiences. The surveys used to be administered twice yearly, and included just one or two open-ended questions, The Wall Street Journal reported last year. But with UltiPro Perception, Twitter started sending the survey to one-sixth of its workforce every month—and increased the number of openended questions it asked. UltiPro Perception’s analysis tools ran through the narrative answers, extracting patterns that were then shared with executives.

  • Let’s Review, Shall We? How Software Is Transforming On-the-Job Feedback
    Zendesk even put formal reviews on hold. Instead, it uses UltiPro Perception to evaluate employees on an ongoing basis through digital surveys. ‘If you can understand what motivates people to do better, then you can really unlock performance,’ observes Zendesk’s vice president of human resources, David Hanrahan. ‘We’re coupling engagement and performance.
