Ottawa, ON – December 12, 2018: Corporate Renaissance Group (CRGroup), a global provider of products and solutions for improving business performance and management, is pleased to announce that CRG emPerform, its leading web-based employee performance management software, has again won a coveted Brandon Hall bronze award for Best Advance in Performance Management Technology for 2018. CRG emPerform secured the recognition for the development of its On-Demand Form functionality that adds to the solution’s robust feature set. The win was announced on December 5th, 2018 and all winners are listed here.

CRG emPerform’s On-Demand Form functionality was released earlier this year and offers real-time, user-launched performance management forms on top of existing performance management functionality. This unique and innovative feature puts the power of real-time performance management forms in the hands of employees and managers and is helping HR foster a culture of ongoing performance development, coaching and recognition.

“The development of our On-Demand Form functionality was in response to the lack of truly flexible and ad-hoc options available in the performance management software market and has been a game-changer for many businesses who cannot rely solely on traditional once-a-year, HR-driven performance reviews,” said John Smith, Director of Enterprise Business Solutions for CRG emPerform. “On-Demand forms are helping customers engage their talent in real-time performance discussions surrounding projects, development, and goals.”

“We’re proud to honor the innovators. As human capital management continues to evolve, the creativity of the award winners is breathtaking. Organizations of all size showed that creativity and technology can create new and better work experiences for businesses and their employees,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program.

With the addition of On-Demand Forms, CRG emPerform now offers one of the most robust and flexible performance management solutions available. “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award from Brandon Hall Group and we thank the panel of esteemed judges for their efforts in evaluating all entries and for the validation this recognition gives to our product in the pursuit of new innovations in performance management technology,” continued John.

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, and Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria:

  • Product: What was the product’s breakthrough innovation?
  • Unique differentiators: What makes the product unique and how 
does it differ from any competing products?
  • Value proposition: What problem does the product solve and/or what 
need does this product address?
  • Measurable results: What are the benefits customers can expect to 
experience as a result of using this product?

This is the fourth award for CRG emPerform, having also earned gold and bronze in the ‘Best Advance in Talent Management Technology for Small and Medium Sized Businesses’ category in 2013, 2015 and 2017. This win comes on the heels of being awarded the 2018 Great User Experience & 2018 Rising Star for HR Software By FinancesOnline.
