How Performance Management software works

If you’re looking for software to assist in the overall management of employee performance, you should consider the following when making your choice. 

Manage and access position descriptions in one central location

Position Description management is fundamental to performance. Storing your position descriptions online means your employees can access them anytime and anywhere, reducing confusion regarding their roles, and makes it easy for everyone to assign it to themselves or to their reports. No more hunting around for pieces of paper or the most recent version.

Easily create and customise S.M.A.R.T. objectives and rating scales

Having quality objectives is imperative to having high performing employees but writing meaningful objectives/KPIs can be a challenge. Finding software that includes a writer can help create Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound goals for your employees. Furthermore, the ability to customise your ratings/measures for each objective can also help employees know what they should prioritise for success.

Regulate 1 on 1s with statuses and notes

Regular catch ups are a necessity for successful performance management. Setting an objective at the start of the year to only check progress 12 months later, results in a waste of time and effort. A Performance Management system that can help you achieve a ‘no surprise’ approach for all parties. Uncomplicate the process by facilitating easy 1 on 1’s, with one-click statuses and online notes, and keep track of what’s working and what needs special attention.

Boost engagement with development plans

Help your employees be the best they can be by connecting development goals to their performance plans. With integration to other internal functions such as learning modules, you can support your workforce’s continued development. Not only does it boost engagement, but it helps you hire talent from within rather than externally recruiting, benefiting the organisation in the long run.

Objective alignment to help your organisation achieve its strategic plan

Keep everyone on the same page by cascading KPI’s/Objectives to the organisation. This helps your managers align employees to the overall business goals, so everyone can achieve the same strategic outcomes. Keep your employees productive by showing them that they are an essential piece of the bigger picture.

Assess competencies with a Feedback Writer

Performance Management software assist line managers in rating employees against their competencies. Review employees against organisational competencies or role specific competencies as well as behaviours. Access to a Competency Library (including Federal Government or State Government Competency Libraries) and a feedback writer allows managers to you to easily create feedback.
