Nipro is a medical equipment company specializing in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and pharma packaging. Its aim is to improve the health of patients and the safety of healthcare practitioners.
With offices around the world, Nipro has a diverse workforce. But despite the geographical distance, Nipro people have one thing in common: the ‘Nipro DNA’ which supports an entrepreneurial spirit.
Before using huapii, Nipro recorded its employee performance evaluations with pen and paper. It was a lengthy, unstructured process – and a source of complaints. Managers said the performance evaluation was time-consuming and hard to follow up with all employees. And HR struggled with the mountain of paperwork needed to keep track of employee objectives and annual reviews.
Time was being wasted. So, as HR business partner Marjan explains, Nipro looked for a fresh start – a digital platform that would help build a stronger connection with employees.
Nipro saw huapii as the natural choice. With our platform, the company took its performance evaluation from time-consuming and frustrating, to streamlined and intuitive. Freed from the mire of paperwork, it embraced a continuous process focused on development and connection.
With our help, Nipro has been able to rethink performance evaluation and take it from a once-a-year process to continuous culture.
Objectives have become attainable as employees take ownership of their goals and begin to drive their own career progression within Nipro. And thanks to our Profile feature, employees can showcase their skills and work experience, making them visible across the company’s every region and business unit.
We recognize that implementation and onboarding are important steps. Although Covid restrictions meant we couldn’t be on-site at Nipro, our professional change management approach meant we could successfully complete our workshops and training remotely.
Going from a paper-heavy process to a new platform could have felt like a big change for Nipro employees after so many years. So we took care to involve them from the start to ensure buy-in. Huapii helped employees embrace the change and supported the whole organization towards a smooth transition. And we didn’t leave it there. Like all our customers, Nipro has its own huapii Customer Success Manager to ensure the organization and its employees get the maximum benefit from our platform.
Nipro employees also appreciated the move towards a more digital future. They praised huapii’s approach and say the new performance process adds much more value.
Employee involvement, engagement, and transparency are key parts of our platform, and the Profile and Objectives functions are fully embraced by the Nipro team.
Completing their individual profiles gives employees the chance to highlight their own skills and stake their position within the internal talent pool. And it also makes it easy to discover colleagues’ skills and find the people that can help move a project forward.
In addition, huapii allows employees to take ownership of their objectives. Setting them in our platform saves time, provides employees with an accessible overview, and helps give their career a boost!
We asked Marjan, how she would describe huapii in three words:
Continuous performance management It’s difficult to get better at something you only hear about once a year. So instead of an annual performance meeting, huapii sets up a culture of continuous performance management that starts with regular and continuous check-ins. This gives managers and teams the power to deliver constructive feedback to feel more confident and

I always found a way to get or to create for myselfs jobs where I could achieve my life’s purpose: connecting with people and helping them grow (while growing myself).
