    Activ Appraisals Benefits

    During the hectic pace of everyday work, it can be a difficult task to manage all your employees well. An appraisal is a regular opportunity to identify – and deal with – all the most important issues facing the employee.

    With Activ Appraisals, the employee’s key objectives can be recorded easily. Making it possible for the organisation to monitor and manage if the employee has achieved or exceeded them. The system manages any new objectives that are set with the employee during each appraisal.

    By identifying any achievements during the previous period, Activ Appraisals can highlight this to the employee to help create the motivation to achieve even more. By recording the fact that ‘well done’ or ‘thank you’ was documented may seem unimportant, but acknowledgements like these can be extremely important to the employee’s on-going development.

    By documenting, identifying and correcting current issues, Activ Appraisals can help you improve the employee’s productivity. An appraisal can provide an insight into the work being done and the employees who are doing it.

    Competency Libraries

    Activ Appraisals enables you to define your own competency libraries as you may want to configure a number of different libraries. For example, libraries can be setup at different levels such as Directors or Middle Managers. Each competency can be setup with a description and then a number of statements or questions that underpin the definition.

    • Define what the library is called

    • Provide a description of the library

    • Add as many different competencies as you like


    Self-Assessment Questionnaire

    Activ Performance Appraisals enables you to build your bespoke questionnaire and schedule to let the employee know well in advance of when the performance appraisal will be.  When you have defined the competencies, you are ready to start building the questionnaire. The questionnaire can be designed by yourself or you can use one of the predefined questionnaires already built in the system.

    You can easily distribute the self-assessment questionnaire to the employees individually or across the department in order to complete as part of the preparation process.

    Activ Appraisals gives you total flexibility in configuring specific questionnaires for different levels and types of employee. A brief example of the types of questions that could be asked is as follows.

    • How well have you performed since your last review?

    • How would you rate your own skills?

    • Are you a team worker?

    • How is your attitude to work?

    • What do you think your key objectives for the next six months should be?


    Manager’s Preparation

    Activ Appraisals can support the Managers preparation for planning the appraisal meeting with the employee. The Manager is provided with the relevant information in order to assist with their preparation:

    • Employee’s completed self-assessment questionnaire for review.

    • Ability to identify the important issues and focus the appraisal on them.

    • Review the performance appraisal report from previous appraisal (historical appraisals can be imported if required).

    • Identify which objectives have and have not been achieved.

    • Plan their objectives for the employee appraisal.

    • Deal with any recent one-off problems that have been reported before the appraisal.


    Appraisal Meeting

    Record the appraisals meeting in Activ Appraisals and document what the employee and manager discussed.

    Setting Key Objectives

    As the whole appraisal cycle is built around setting, reviewing and then re-setting key objectives, Activ Appraisals supports you every step of the way.

    Most organisations define that each objective should be SMART – specific, measurable, agreed, realistic and time-limited. Where each objective must be in an area over which the employee has control and each objective has a deadline.

    Activ Appraisals can be configured to help with deadlines by using in-built trigger alerts to inform the employee, line manager and HR of the deadlines agreed. Further cutting down on the time spent for the administration process of making appraisals a success.

    Following Up

    Immediately after the meeting, the manager can write up the performance appraisal report to summarise what was discussed and agreed.

    Activ Appraisals can then distribute the report to the relevant parties to review and feedback.
