The performance management tool is being used to assess actual performance against goals (quantitative criteria), in addition to qualitative criteria. My global team adopted the system well and gave feedback that they like the ability to receive feedback to understand what they are doing well and what to focus on for growth, and they like having a forum to give their own comments and input to their leadership.

Performance Management Software FAQ

What kind of personalized performance review cycles can I set with ClearCompany?

Since every organization has unique needs, this should also be reflected in their performance review cycle. Creating a personalized performance review cycle is important to ensure your organization is receiving the feedback you need in the timeframe you want.

Performance review cycles can be conducted using a cadence you choose, such as quarterly, bi-annual, or annual review cycles. In addition, you can include specific review types to better evaluate each employee, including new hire reviews, competency- and role-based reviews, and peer and 360 reviews. With a performance review system like ClearCompany, you can manage review cycles, create custom reviews or choose from expert-created review templates, and spot performance trends across employees, managers, and departments.

Why is a performance management system important?

Performance management is necessary to ensure the success of a business and the growth of its employees. It is much more than promotions and praise. When done correctly, performance management is about creating a culture of engaged, curious employees who are empowered to do their best work. Performance management software can assist in creating a modern process for your company by effectively managing, tracking, and analyzing performance.

How does performance management software work?

Performance management software automates and centralizes the many processes involved in managing employee performance. These systems include features such as goal setting, performance reviews, feedback and recognition tools, and analytics to track progress and identify areas for improvement. They enable your HR team to easily launch performance reviews, automate review cycles, gather feedback, recognize great work, and address performance issues.

Performance management software helps simplify processes, ensure fairness and consistent communication, and drive data-informed decision-making.

What is the difference between employee reviews and performance management?

Employee reviews are just one component of your performance management strategy. While employee reviews focus on evaluating individual employee performance over a specific period, performance management refers to your comprehensive approach to managing and improving employee performance.

Performance management involves setting SMART goals, providing continuous feedback and coaching, identifying professional development opportunities, and aligning employee performance with organizational goals and strategies. It also includes recognizing employee contributions and monitoring overall performance to identify trends and prevent small problems from becoming bigger issues.

How can I recognize employees’ accomplishments and milestones?

Celebratory messages recognizing an employee’s accomplishments are an important part of fostering a culture of employee recognition and appreciation. Organizations with employee recognition programs also see 31% less turnover than those without. Social sharing performance management tools encourage peers to amplify each other’s accomplishments, including ClearCompany Shout Outs, which allows coworkers to instantly send praise to individuals or teams.

What is the purpose of a performance management system?

A performance management system helps companies better understand their employees’ performance and productivity. It allows leadership to easily track, analyze, and evaluate their employees, ensuring goals are met and issues are addressed promptly.

The performance management data you gather with your system can then be used to inform compensation, career trajectory, company goals, hiring decisions, performance reviews, and just about anything related to human capital management.

How can you choose the best performance management software for your business?

There’s a lot to consider when you’re shopping for performance management software. The best system for your business depends on your strategies and goals for performance management, but there are a few features we can all agree are important to look for in your system:

  • User-friendly interface
  • Customizable and templated performance reviews
  • Review cycle automation
  • Automated completion reminders and notifications
  • Reliable, accessible customer support
  • Cloud-based with myriad integration options
  • Can be tailored to your talent management needs with additional modules
