It’s that time of the year when employees will have their performance measured and their compensation and bonuses decided. When we talk performance measurement, we think of those boring appraisal forms, the never-ending follow-ups, the lack of transparency, and the doubt that comes with it. But is that what performance reviews are really about? Somewhere down the line, performance reviews have been changed, and the accent has come on to the process instead of on the people. Instead of focusing on people, the focus has gone on to getting the job done and enacting a semblance of structure in compensation and bonuses.
This needs to change, and performance management needs to be more about the people and what they can do with the feedback they are given. This is where the performance management module from HR management software can be really useful. The performance module is a powerhouse that caters to all sorts of needs and ensures that appraisals are conducted the way they are meant to be.
With the software, you can automate a bunch of performance management tasks beginning with creating the appraisal forms. You can use the templates offered by the software or import appraisal forms from your systems. Then comes data collection, which can also be automated, starting with routing the forms. HR professionals need not worry about repeatedly following up with employees about filling their appraisal forms as the software will handle the follow-up.
Finally, coming to data analysis, the software also comes with performance analytics that help crunch the numbers and come up with insights and patterns. Not just this – the results of these analyses can be reported to all the stakeholders easily. All in all, you can get the best from your appraisals with HR software.
