At a basic level, SAP SuccessFactors Calibration is a tool that helps managers across an organization to learn to use the same language for comparing and sharing an understanding of the competencies and expectations of employee behavior. Calibration is the process that organizations use to compare and potentially adjust the ratings of their team members to ensure that performance levels are standardized across the organizations. Depending on company process or strategy, calibration can be part of a performance review process, a talent review process, or a compensation review process.
Calibration Session Process
The source of calibration data could come from the Performance Management, Employee Profile, Compensation, and Succession components. Through discussions between managers who discuss selected groups of employees, calibration ratings are adjusted, and when the talent cycle is completed, the updated information is published back to the original sources.
Calibration provides different user interface views for users to visualize and interact with sessions: Dashboard, List View, Bin View, Matrix Grid View, and Executive Review.
