“An essential platform to track how your team is doing and help with growth”

Great way to have a high-level view over what are the skills within the team and how to best out of it. It also helps that I can easily see how they progress and what a manager can do to better impact the trajectory of each individual.

It also helps that the team at Nestor are always quick to respond to feedback and work with you to implement features that would make your life easier as a manager.
