Undertaking a Performance Appraisal is a regular part of corporate life. Most companies undertake them on a regular basis but are they making the most of the data that is available to them?
For example is undertaking Staff Performance Analysis easy to do? Do you know who your star performers are? Do you know which teams are the weakest? Do you know which people have improved during the last review cycle? Can you visualise this in relation to your company structure? Can you drill into individual managers and see how they are performing?
These are typical questions that any HR function should be able to answer easily without having to delve into a myriad of spreadsheets before some insight is obtained. OrgVue is designed specifically with these types of questions in mind. Its rich graphical interface helps to analyse and visualise the data in a way that is immediately understandable. The powerful helicopter view enables rapid insight – High Performers can be readily identified and placed on a fast track whilst the weaker performers are equally visible.
Looking at the dataset that I have used in my previous blog posts we can see the following types of information. The chart view can display the overall performance profile across the business.
This can be split by department to give further analysis and insight.
We can also easily drill down and understand which poor performers have improved in the last review period and which ones have deteriorated.
We can then take this down to the next level and look at who the poor performers are and who they are managed by. All of this is simple and bring immediate insight. Of course we could equally be looking at the high performers with as much ease.
Companies invest a significant amount of time, effort and energy in completing staff performance appraisals but do they make the most of their investment? Find out how OrgVue can transform your HR data with powerful insight that will enable you to understand your business better.
