What is NetSuite Performance Management?
NetSuite’s SuitePeople Performance Management solution centralizes and automates the employee goal management and performance review process. SuitePeople not only makes performance management more efficient, it keeps employees engaged by helping create goals, monitoring progress and recognizing achievements. Employees and managers can collaborate on goals and easily rate progress and provide reflections on past performance. Templates, scheduling capabilities and customizable reports help HR leaders deliver a more intuitive and efficient review process.
Improve Employee Engagement
Reducing the amount of time needed to complete performance reviews by more than 50% while increasing completion rates makes reviews more effective.
Leverage Data from the Suite
Real-time, automatic updates of progress toward goals using data from other NetSuite applications, including CRM and PSA, result in more objective performance reviews.
HR is an area that’s constantly evolving: laws, rules and policies change. Having a system that’s flexible makes it so much easier to maintain your HR department.
NetSuite Performance Management Benefits
NetSuite Performance Management Features
Twelve metrics are included, with the ability to create your own using data from other NetSuite applications. Actual goal-progress metrics are automatically updated from these applications in real-time. The result: Each goal includes accurate, up-to-date performance measurements for both the employee and the manager.
Both employees and managers can rate performance on individual goals. Color-coded mood icons indicate how the employee is feeling, at any point in time, about achieving a goal. These rating scales can be added to performance review templates.
Goals can be planned, in progress or closed and are visually represented on a goal portlet personalized for each employee, to keep targets visible every day. An easy-to-use drag-and-drop user interface allows employees to quickly move goals across status phases to stay focused on progress.
HR leaders or admins can create performance review templates — complete with questions tailored for different locations, jobs, subsidiaries or departments — to evaluate employees more consistently. Once completed, the performance review document can be scheduled for a group of employees, with notifications sent via email.
Managers and employees use threaded conversations to discuss and reflect on performance toward goals, making for more meaningful and timely feedback. This interactive experience encourages frequent discussions about progress and accelerates the process of creating a performance review.
Approvals and Acknowledgements
Managers approve goals for their direct reports, while employees acknowledge the contents of a review at the end of the cycle. HR or designated admins can customize acknowledgement language. HR then completes the review process by approving individual reviews; teams have the option to approve a group of reviews.
With SuiteAnalytics Workbooks, HR managers and admins can access standard reports and view overdue reviews, rating distribution and performance review history for each employee. Teams can also see an overview of goals, by status, across the organization as well as goal duration and overdue goals. Use saved searches to create additional reports and perform analysis on performance management data.
