What are organization goals?
They’re principles or values that your business or organization should achieve throughout a given period of time and applies to everyone as a whole rather than being tied to individuals. While these are not rated in performance reviews, any personal goals that support these organizational goals will roll up in a report for review and tracking.
What are personal goals?
They’re included in performance reviews, and can be rated either as support for organization goals or as standalone objectives. These can be determined by a manager or an employee.
What about archiving goals?
When goals are no longer relevant, employees and managers should put these into the archives. It’s important to note, if you mass archive your goals rather than archiving them individually, you cannot mass rescind the archived event and you cannot mass restore goals.
What are performance calibrations?
They are the interactive plotting (drag and drop actions) of employees based on a single rating (i.e. their overall performance). Performance ratings can flow directly into performance calibration so that workers are automatically plotted.
What are competencies?
They are a library of skills that can be associated with job families, management levels, job profiles, templates and positions. Although competencies can be associated with positions, it is not recommended because of the level of maintenance.
What is a professional profile?
They’re a snapshot of six key worker talent attributes including talent statements, job history, education, skills and experiences, projects and skills. If there is anytime feedback for this employee, it can be displayed here. Workers can also import education, external job history and skills by using resume parsing.
Talent Statements are brief professional descriptions about a person on their Worker profile. You can write talent statements about yourself or others. Talent statements can be used to support performance reviews, development discussions and career planning.
What skills and experiences are included here?
Education, languages, competencies, training, professional affiliations, certifications, external job history, accomplishments or awards, internal projects, work experience and talent statements.
What about career and mobility?
Career attributes can be captured through an employee’s talent profile, talent review and by using any performance template. Career interests, job interests (the “compare me to job” functionality), travel (the percentage of time configurable to your needs) and relocation (both short and long term) can also be captured here.
What are talent cards?
They’re a one page summary of a worker’s key talent information that can be printed as a PDF and are configurable with BIRT.
