What is GoalSpan?

GoalSpan is creating the future for employee feedback and performance. It’s a smart tool that replaces the outdated annual review with a simple and intuitive digital platform. Everyone easily sets goals, shares ideas, and gets real-time feedback. This allows employees to perform their best because they are motivated by a clear vision, and understand how they contribute to that vision. Come be a part of our growing community where the world of digital performance is at your fingertips.

Features

How it Works

Employee updates in BambooHR will automatically sync with GoalSpan every hour, basic information will update every 15 minutes, making data integration constant and consistent. Add a new hire, remove an account, or update existing employee data, and all changes will be kept current in GoalSpan. We also have photo integration so you can add employee photos to BambooHR and see them in GoalSpan. We have three tiers of data that sync with BambooHR. You can choose to sync every tier or choose which tiers are best for you. Please see below to learn more about which fields are in each category.

With our two-way integration every GoalSpan acknowledgment, goal plan, and review is automatically added to BambooHR for each employee. Our system also supports single sign-on. This allows employees to click a link from their BambooHR homepage and automatically access their GoalSpan account.
