Begin the video to get started on SAP SuccessFactors Performance and Goals.
SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management enables employees and managers to align individual goals with company business objectives. It helps organizations ensure that all employees are aligned and work on essential things that matter most.
The Goal Plan
The Goal Plan
A Goal Plan is an online worksheet where users (such as an employee and a manager) create, update, and align performance goals in one central place and track goal progress throughout the year. Categories can be used to organize performance goals in goal plans.
Features of Goal Management
- Goal Library is a list of goals that the user can select and add to their Goal Plan or the Goal Plans of their direct reports, depending on their permissions and your company's business processes. The goals are editable when you add them to a plan and provides a starting point for goal setting. Standard Goal Libraries are provided; however, you can choose to create custom libraries to meet the organization’s needs.
- Team Goals: allows managers to create, update, and assign goals for their team members, without having to include the goals in their own Goal Plan. It effectively allows the manager to manage and monitor the goals they set for their team, without having to achieve the goals directly.
- Goal Alignment: can be achieved by cascading and linking goals. Goal alignment allows employees to feel more tied to the organization’s goals and managers to monitor and track company-wide progress. Cascading a goal allows users to cascade a personal performance goal from their own goal plan to another user’s goal plan. This way goal creation and alignment can be achieved at the same time. Linking goals is the ability to tie together two existing goals that are related or interdependent between individuals.
