Create a high performing public service

Providing service to all Australians starts with a high performing agency. Government experiences unique challenges due to the cyclical nature of government, changes in ministers, org re-structures and senate estimates. 

Siloes and manager-dependent workplace experience. Keeping up with a recent change in executive. Improving manager capability and consistent performance across teams. Mixed feedback on the latest State of the Service report. 

PentaQuest helps you manage your people, processes, and strategy, on one simple interface, designed with and for Government. 

Case study

Australian Government department

Before PentaQuest:

Poor engagement with professional development and performance discussions

Learning and development activities were limited to mandatory activities and there was little engagement with professional development. Performance conversations happened in a formal setting every 6 months but staff felt that these conversations were stressful and not meaningful. The performance process was largely manual and the staff experience was highly dependent on the manager.

After PentaQuest:

641% increase in learning and development completed in 6 months

We delivered a massive increase in the amount of learning and development activities being completed, which resulted in staff being more skilled and results in productivity gains. Performance conversations increased in frequency and meaningfulness, with the average staff member having 5 development goals that they are actively working towards.

"It is definitely more engaging to fill in than the old performance plan document. It makes staff think about what they are doing to develop and what they can do to progress activities. I think it is an excellent innovation."

Support manager capability

using specific activities

For many managers having a remote team is new and it requires new practices and habits. 
Now you can support them by giving specific activities to increase their capability and management style. Whether it be attending specialised manager training, having more conversations with staff, or taking time to connect with other managers, you can create manager-specific activities. Managers also have a portal to create activities and team objectives for their staff.

“My manager has become more conscious of
providing feedback because of PentaQuest”

Get real-time analytics

in the Admin portal

As well as being able to customise loads of features in the PentaQuest platform quickly, easily and at any time, Admins ​have access to analytics and reporting that give you real-time access. This data lets you adjust and evolve the gamification experience over time based on user activity and what is happening in the business and social context. 

"It lets me see where everything is up to. In many cases it actually gives me data that we aren't capturing anywhere else. It's  really useful like that."
