SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management is part of the SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals bundle of applications. Using Performance Management, employees and managers work together to assess employees' work performance, including their goal achievements and competencies.
The Performance Form is an online form used to review the employee’s performance. Employees and managers use the form to provide ratings and comments on goals and competencies. The Performance Form is organized in sections that are either informational or require actions such as ratings and comments. Additionally, it contains a route map which is the workflow the form follows from creation until completion. Performance Forms are accessible by selecting the main navigation drop-down list and then selecting the Performance tab.
The main elements of a Performance Form include the following:
Route Map: Route maps establish the steps and roles that are involved in a performance review. The route map displays at the top of the performance form giving a clear indication of where the form is currently and which steps follow. When the form is routed to a step, the user can go to Home → Performance → Inbox to open the form.
Rating Scale: Rating scales allow the reviewer to assign a score to the employee as a measure of performance. Goal ratings, competency ratings and overall ratings can be provided in a performance form.
Goal Section: Goal sections display the goals created and tracked on the employee’s goal plan.
Competency Section: Competency sections display the competencies that are associated with the employee’s role and can also display the core competencies of the organization. The writing assistant tool is available per competency to effectively help the user with providing feedback.
Summary Section: The summary section lists the ratings of each goal and competency as well as the overall form rating.
Team Overview is a tool that enables managers to get a one-page list of their direct reports and evaluate their performance depending on the status of a performance form. From the Team Overview, managers can Ask for Feedback on their direct reports from internal or external users.
