High performing teams have one thing in common - their people are highly engaged. Engagement is a psychological state of high motivation where employees go above and beyond and feel aligned to the organisation's vision. 

Creating a high performing team needs to happen across the whole team, not just in a few. Managers need to be supported. ​Performance needs to be systematically managed. The old formal half-yearly performance review process is dead.

PentaQuest helps you manage performance using the latest behavioural science to tap into motivation and manage performance systematically across your whole team and organisation.

Build a high performing team

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."

And you can even invite other people to support you, like managers, mentors or peers. Goals can be individual or team based.

Does PentaQuest replace my current performance management system?

PentaQuest can replace it or augment your current system. Some of our clients have found that PentaQuest offers more value and features than their current system and therefore use our platform solely for performance management. Others use PentaQuest and another system.

Whichever works for you, one thing's for certain - performance management has not been this much fun!

Yes, our behavioural experts are here to partner with you to design and develop the experience. We have 100s of behaviours, tasks, challenges and rewards that we can work with you to refine to make sure the experience fits your unique team.

What can I customise in the platform?

A lot! We know that meaningful gamification occurs when it is specifically tailored to your unique context. That's why you are in complete control of the activities, challenges, rewards, teams, look and feel, and much more. Through the Admin portal you can add, edit, and delete almost all elements of the platform so that you can give your team the best experience. And it means that you can make changes quickly, easily and at any time and evolve the gamification experience with your organisation.

Can you integrate with our current systems?

We sure can! The PentaQuest platform has been developed with API-first in mind. This allows the platform to easily integrate with 3rd party apps that are API driven, such as LMSs.

While your LMS hosts your content, think of PentaQuest as your behaviour management systems that provides a holistic L&D experience that includes content, daily tasks, personal development, and team development.

We are continually adding in new integrations. If you would like to integrate with one of your existing business systems, get in touch.
