Introducing Lattice Grow — Employee Development for the New World of Work

Growth is fundamental to the human experience. For us to feel fulfilled, we crave challenges that push us to the next level. We need mountains to climb and goals that we can reach toward and achieve. And we need the sense as individuals that we’re progressing in our lives. 

The same is true in our professional lives. As employees, we strive for working environments where we constantly look to gain new experiences that will advance our careers. A growth mindset is at the heart of all thriving companies. That’s why employee development is critical for long-term business success.

At Lattice, our mission is to make work meaningful. We work with our customers and their employees to unlock career meaning in two key ways: continuous performance management and employee engagement. But while our products provided insight into past performance and current engagement,  we wanted to take it one step further to address the need for employee development in order to make work more meaningful with a focus on the future.

Today, we are really excited to announce the third pillar to the Lattice platform — Lattice Grow, the first employee growth and development product built for the new world of work.

Lattice Grow redefines talent management as talent acceleration. Grow puts employees in charge of their own development, giving them and their managers a roadmap of actionable steps for continuous discussion and a transparent view of success. Meanwhile, it also gives companies the infrastructure to manage their employees’ career growth and align it to broader business goals and success. 

Grow incorporates employee-developed growth plans into various key manager touchpoints, like one-on-one meetings, performance reviews, or their weekly updates — allowing for organic development conversations that help them feel supported in their careers while helping companies reduce regrettable attrition. 

Chris Yeh, Sr. Manager of Talent Acceleration at Clio, sums it up this way: “We are all about ensuring that each employee is in the driver seat of their developmental journey, and Lattice Grow, in conjunction with the suite of tools in Lattice Performance, helps make that a reality. Grow and Performance gives managers and employees tools to have real dialogue around where they want to go, where they stand, and how to get there.”

The addition of Grow improves the Lattice offering by…

  • Creating transparency in expectations and areas for focus as employees look to evolve their careers with integrated Competency Matrices and Career Tracks.
  • Accelerating careers by offering clear guidance for growth progression in the form of collaborative, easy to track Growth Plans.
  • Drive company growth as employees focus on key areas of impact that align with larger company needs and values.
  • Provide guidance for managers to consistently incorporate Growth Areas and development goals into conversations, rather than in a standalone dust-collecting document.

At Lattice, we want to make sure that employees don’t just know how they’ve performed, that they don’t just get to express how they feel, but they get to know what they’re working towards. They get to make sure that their manager and their companies are working with them to know their career aspirations. And that they can then have clear steps to getting there.

Lattice is the highest-rated product and the Momentum Leader on the G2 Grid for Career Management. Customers like Clio, Reddit, Coinbase, and Webflow have invested in employee development with Lattice Grow and are already seeing strong results. In fact, Nicole Hopkins, the Director of People at Webflow, says “Lattice Grow is the missing piece to holistic talent management.”

In addition, Lattice worked with the experts at People Design House to create the Lattice Competency Guide that helps businesses jumpstart their Employee Development efforts with company-wide competencies. The Lattice Competency Guide is an exclusive asset to Lattice customers.

Lattice Launches Grow, Powering Meaningful Career Conversations for Employee Development

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 16, 2020 — Lattice, the leading people management platform for businesses with people-first cultures, today announced the launch of Grow, a new career development product within the Lattice platform. Grow provides transparency to employees’ career journeys by surfacing advancement paths and actionable development plans while providing managers with trackable data insights. The announcement was made at Resources for Humans Virtual, Lattice’s annual people strategy conference.

Career planning that is only discussed during performance reviews is ineffective. Grow incorporates competency matrices and career tracks into the Lattice platform so any employee can quickly and easily navigate their career advancement roadmap. Through it’s integration with Lattice Performance — which includes 1:1s, feedback, and peer reviews — Grow offers a more intuitive, rounded assessment of employees’ current skills and career interests as well as visibility into next growth steps. By providing employees specific areas of focus and direction, managers can help employees develop in the areas their company needs and values to have a positive impact on company growth.

As a manager tool, Grow allows leaders to view, set up, and track development metrics and key growth areas for each member of their team. Bringing career development information into regularly used tools makes conversations around growth happen more consistently and more easily. This transparency is key to empowering employees with the information they need to continue to take the next step and feel supported in their careers and reduce attrition.

Competency matrices in Grow also complement companies’ diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts by establishing objective, observable targets for each level within a role, and making them easy to find and reference by ICs and managers alike. This helps to remove unconscious bias when assessing performance and promotion criteria.

“Employees want more than a paycheck,” said Jack Altman, co-founder and CEO of Lattice. “They want to understand how they impact the bigger picture and what they can do to successfully accomplish their career goals. We see Grow as a natural progression in our company mission to make work meaningful.”

A growth mindset is at the heart of all thriving organization cultures. With Lattice Grow, leadership teams and HR organizations have an opportunity to increase this focus across the individuals in their organization. This idea has been further amplified during the pandemic as the normal practices that encourage momentum and continuity have become essential to employees looking for continued structure and growth opportunities in a remote environment.

“Even when I’ve worked in progressive organizations that value career development, we never had a tool that makes it easy to facilitate development plans in line with career tracks,” said Nicole Hopkins, Director of People at Webflow. “Lattice Grow is the missing piece to holistic talent management.”

With the addition of Grow, Lattice is the only unified performance management, employee engagement, and career growth platform built for people strategy. Learn more about Grow and how it works with the Lattice platform by visiting: or read the blog post.
