Aggreko plc Introduces Sonar6s Award-Winning Online Performance Reviews for Employees Globally

Auckland, New Zealand November 17, 2009 — Sonar6 ( will provide Aggreko with a single point of performance information for the entire company, offering online performance reviews, self-assessments and development planning.

Aggreko’s North American subsidiary has used Sonar6 for managing the performance of almost 500 employees since early 2009. The decision to roll Sonar6 out internationally was made on the back of the existing relationship and continued positive results from the system’s straightforward and user-friendly reviews.

Aggreko Global HR Director Siegfried Putzer says the decision to introduce Sonar6 globally will encourage individual and company growth: “(It is) a simple, meaningful online performance management tool that engages employees and enables managers to give valuable feedback, and to have discussions around existing capabilities and future development.”

This expansion will position Sonar6 as the performance management vendor of choice for Aggreko’s global community. The international nature of the implementation will also see reviews and training conducted in 6 languages within the Sonar6 system.

Sonar6 Head of Experience Michael Carden says Aggreko’s decision to use Sonar6 across its entire business is an exciting one. “It’s a true success story: Aggreko started out with fewer than 200 employees profiled in Sonar6, and now the majority of its 4,000 staff globally will be using the system. It goes to show that if you have a really useful system delivering useful results without costing the earth, companies are going to want to use it.”

Sonar6 is offering a free 30 day trial of Sonar6, incorporating Quick Start set up and the Bendelta Competency Library. For more details, visit the website.
