BlinkEval is a performance management system that provides real time performance feedback of individual employees. BlinkEval is a Chicago based company founded in 2015. It addresses the common challenges that the existing performance review processes face like infrequent feedback (which normally occurs once a year), wastage of employees’ time in filling out the lengthy forms (which is not worthy of the little value it gives), expense limitations complexities involved with implementing technology solutions to facilitate feedback.
BlinkEval follows an intuitive approach to solve these problems with real-time feedback. It provides regular feedback, keeps the employees more engaged and increases productivity and employee retention.
