Improving employee performance every day

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 Benefits

NetSuite Performance Management Features

NetSuite SuitePeople Performance Management features a goal management solution that helps automate the performance review process for managers and their direct reports. Administrative features enable HR leaders to deliver a more consistent and effective performance review from a single system.

Goal Metrics

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.

Goal Metrics

Rating Scales

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.

Rating Scales

Goal Status

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.

Goal Status

Review Templates

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.

Review Templates

Threaded Conversations

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.

Threaded Conversations

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.

Approvals and Acknowledgements


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.
