The product team viewed the platform selection process as an opportunity to crystalize how they do performance management and approached the search thoughtfully. “We evaluated pretty much every performance management tool that exists.” Our role was to create the project from botom to finish.
As the company approached 50 employees, Stephanie and the Button team made the decision to start looking for a tool. They needed a solution that could grow with the company and make the entire performance review process easier for everyone, not only for the People Operations department.
The problem with manual solutions is that they become harder to manage as you add more people, and thus more stress, to the system. “When you get to 30 or 40 people, that manual process started to grow from two hours, to three hours, four hours, five hours,” says Stephanie, adding, “It quickly became unscalable.”
Design and ease-of-use helped Lattice win over the Button team. The team “loved Lattice’s user experience and usability, being able to have split-screens and the ability to customize the transparency” says Stephanie, adding, “Our CTO and our VP of Engineering came from Google where they had their own internal performance management system and I think it was something our team was used to having.”

It’s imperative to test the results of your actions—and prove that they bear results. A lot of companies make plans to change. Some actually do. But how many measure the results of their actions through financial results? In a fast-changing environment, you only have so many bets to make—and any actions or plans should be tested and proven before they can be put in place for the long run.

This pace and breadth of change calls for purposeful and swift action. The world around us is shifting. Years’ worth of change is happening in a matter of weeks. Like many leaders, you’re probably finding you don’t have enough insights from the data in your company. You might also need to rethink your business model for a different future—or at least, alter your portfolio of products and services, digitize operations, and enable a more remote workforce.
