Pingboard product overview

Pingboard is an employee networking software that gives staff members access to essential information about people, teams, and the company. It enables people to keep up with who’s who and what’s new, see when coworkers are available, and celebrate each other. With the software, new hires can onboard faster, surface engaging info at just the right time, and connect with their coworkers on a deeper level.

Unlike software that requires endless drawing, typing, and rearranging to create org charts that are quickly out of date, Pingboard does the hard work. Furthermore, organizations can connect their HR or IT system to the solution and sit back as it automatically adds new hires, updates managers, and syncs employee information.

By using Pingboard, employees get a chance to see where they sit formally on an Org Chart and where and how they fit into the company’s mission and culture by finding common ground with one another.

Employee directory

With Pingboard, users can search the directory for answers to everyday questions and find coworkers by name, office location, skills, and interests. The employee directory streamlines learning about, finding, and connecting with each other. An employee’s profile shows the basics, like their email address and phone number, but users can configure what else they share, like desk location or “how to pronounce my name.”.

The staff directory and employee profiles contain rich data that engages and connects the team. When users look at someone’s profile, they also see recognition from peers, what groups or teams they belong to, their reporting chain, and any upcoming milestones.

Peer recognition

Whenever a user checks out a person’s profile in Pingboard, they can see the work the employee was recognized for, giving context about what they worked on and the unique skills and perspective they bring. Managers get notifications every time someone on their team, in the office, or across the organization receives peer recognition.

Org chart

Pingboard enables visualizing the company for its leaders, team, and board. Its org chart feature depicts the company—who reports to who and how departments fit together. Users can scan the org chart to see info at a glance or dive deeper into individual employee profiles to learn more about them.

The software allows users to securely share their org chart with people they trust, like consultants or the board of directors. Teams can also download, print, or embed it in the intranet.

1:1s

The solution teaches managers and employees to prepare for 1:1 meetings so they can focus on relationship building and employee growth. Pingboard 1:1s cultivate a relationship and ensure that the meeting focuses on alignment, building trust, and identifying employee development opportunities. With Pingboard, anyone can schedule a recurring 1:1 with anyone else in the company. Employee profiles give a more holistic view of the person an employee is meeting with. Both parties can reflect on who deserves peer recognition at the organization and submit it straight from the meeting.
