StandOut features and benefits

Empower team leaders to build on team strengths

Engagement is — and always will be — fluid, which is why most annual engagement surveys fall flat. StandOut is different. It’s based on daily, in-the-field interactions. It asks the questions that measure factors most likely to predict engagement behaviors that lead to performance.

Because 70 percent of employee engagement is due to the team leader,²

StandOut focuses on helping team leaders engage with their teams in dynamic, meaningful ways. Here’s how:

  • A strengths assessment reveals to the team leader the unique strengths of each person, because strengths are the key to unlocking outstanding performance
  • Personalized coaching — based on the practices of the world’s best leaders — is delivered to team leaders to support them in having weekly, light-touch conversations with team members about near-term work

StandOut: Engagement

Learn how StandOut accurately measures and improves employee engagement.

Separate measurement from acceleration

Performance measurement and performance acceleration are two different practices, with different needs. Most goal-setting, ratings and competency tools tend to mash them together, solving neither effectively.

StandOut empowers team leaders to drive team performance by separating measurement from acceleration:

  • To drive performance acceleration, leaders receive personalized coaching and tools to support weekly check-ins with team members — one of the most effective practices for motivating employees
  • To drive effective measurement, StandOut offers a proprietary feedback system that neutralizes the “unconscious rater bias” most leaders employ, which means their ratings tend to reflect themselves and not the person being rated

StandOut: Performance Acceleration and Performance Measurement

Learn how to use StandOut Check-Ins and Performance Pulse to solve for both performance measurement and acceleration in your organization.
