Choose the rating system most convenient for you, including whole numbers, decimals, or banded scoring.

Visibility and Oversight

The employee portal gives employees easy, private access to their evaluation feedback and personal progress notes. Personalized dashboards for HR and managers allow for review of overall program status as well as task ownership and progress. HR can control which employees are included in each program.

Continuity and Clarity

Capture and share lightweight, bidirectional feedback throughout the year on your schedule with progress notes that can later be attached to reviews. Objectives from previous evaluations keep employees on a growth trajectory, while document attachments provide additional clarity and context. Scheduled check-in meetings keep employees on track and HR annotations support managers with additional guidance.

9-Box Model

The 9-box grid, enabled within the Performance Management model, helps HR and supervisors understand the performance and potential of the talent within their institution. The model encourages dialogue by providing a framework for discussing talent, highlights opportunity, and supports both employee career planning and institutional succession planning.

Compliance and Insights

HR visibility and actionable metrics make compliance a breeze. Processes move faster to be completed in the right time frame and, in case of an audit, you’ll have a record of every decision and it’s justification. Catch DE&I discrepancies, like gender bias in reviews, while they can still be corrected.
