About BetterWorks

What We Do

Founded in 2013, BetterWorks was built with one simple goal in mind: to make work better. We’d all experienced the struggles of traditional performance management at other jobs – setting and forgetting goals once a year, rarely receiving feedback on our work from peers or managers, struggling to help our own teams stay engaged, and never quite knowing how our work mattered to the company. We knew there had to be a better way.

Enter, Continuous Performance Management™. We’ve created a powerful new approach to managing and evaluating performance that helps organizations of all sizes improve employee engagement, development and, ultimately, execution. Unlike the traditional annual performance review process, Continuous Performance Management enables a goal-centric approach to performance that is embedded in your day-to-day operations, with better feedback, alignment and conversations between managers and employees. Best of all, we think it makes work just a bit better for everyone.

BetterWorks Core Values

  1. Excellence: Aiming to be exceptional
  2. Sparkle: Passionate about life and work
  3. Team: Committed to common goals
  4. 1% Better Every Day: Ready to learn and grow
