Goal setting software features that promote productivity and progress

High-performing individuals are typically goal-oriented and focused on achieving clear results that are aligned to business plans. Goal setting is extremely important to motivate these employees. And the goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time bound (SMART). The goal setting feature is designed to help employees create SMART objectives that are: 

  • Aligned to company objectives, job-specific and attainable
  • Consistent with goals for other employees with similar responsibilities 
  • Associated with a specific performance review (time-bound) 
  • Easily amended at any time to flex with business changes 
  • Stored in a central location making it easy to view active and past goals for all members of the team

Choose pre-made templates for efficient online performance reviews

People HR lets you create your own performance review templates from scratch. Alternatively, choose from a range of expertly premade templates, which can be filtered to target different groups of employees. The software ensures: 

  • All employees are prompted to complete the review set for them by their manager 
  • Managers can check the status of reviews (in progress, not started etc.)  
  • Reviews can be deleted if needed (data will not be saved) 
  • Admins can access and monitor employee performance sections via the managers’ section

Closing completed performance reviews and starting the cycle again

Performance review software helps your business establish a regular review cycle. Employees will always need to complete their current review before another can be set-up. Which ensures they go through the process of evaluating their performance against their established goals: 

  • Reviews are shared with employees first, then the manager will complete and close off the report 
  • If you enter the closing date for the review, data will feed into the performance tab and will show you a visual report of each review cycle 
  • Issuing reviews in smaller batches means you can complete the review cycle without having to wait for those on holiday/sick leave

Performance review software FAQs

Continuous performance improvement (CPI) is a real-time approach to performance management. So instead of annual appraisals, your company invests in regular performance reviews to ensure your employees’ goals are aligned to your business goals. Want to help employees succeed in their roles by consistently checking in on their progress, and focusing on ways to support their development? HR software is a useful tool to help you embed timesaving, engaging processes to nurture a culture of continuous performance improvement.

360-degree feedback software works by automating the process of requesting, collating and reviewing feedback from colleagues. Employees can identify managers, peers and direct reports that they work with and ask for meaningful feedback on their performance. Submitting feedback via the mobile app makes it easy for colleagues to share their feedback. And our HR software even lets employees share feedback anonymously if they want to. 

Goal setting software helps organisations ensure that each employee’s goals are aligned to the overall business goals. The software also helps you nurture a culture of performance improvement with goals that are true to your company values. Goals are set within a time-bound review period to help make them SMART. And if necessary, they can be edited if, for example, business goals or priorities change within the review period.  

People HR software is so intuitive to use that it doesn’t require any specific training. Making it ideal for small businesses that don’t want training overheads, but also making it easy to roll out for larger organisations too. The online performance reviews can be accessed via a browser or using our mobile app. You don’t need to be in the office to use the software. Simply log on via any device that is connected to the Internet. 

People HR software uses layers of encryption to protect sensitive employee data. This means the data shared in your online performance reviews is more secure than if it were saved locally on your machine. Our data processing and storage is compliant with GDPR and designed to improve your employee data security.

Our online performance review software is designed for small and growing businesses. With options to pay monthly or annually, it is accessible to even very small companies with just a handful of employees. There are no set-up, installation or training costs to consider. And the time-savings made as a result of process automation will help you realise return on investment within weeks of using the software. See our pricing plans.
