In this release:
- HR Partners
- Improved dashboards
- Improved manager’s status reports
- ‘Retired’ Grandfathers
Today we updated PerformanceHub with a brand new feature and several improvements to existing features.
Here’s a high-level overview of the changes. If you want to find out more, then please get in touch and we can walk you through them.
New Feature: HR Partners
With this new feature, you can break your organisation up into zones and then assign HR responsibility to one or more HR Partners for that zone. HR Partners are a new user type in PerformanceHub.
There are a number of reasons why you may want to do this, for example:
- You have dedicated HR Business Partners for departments, locations or countries and you want those people to manage the process for the area they are responsible for.
- You don’t want to give more junior HR employees access to the appraisals of more senior members of the organisation.
Before this release, if you wanted an HR Partner to manage a subset of your business, you could only give them full HR Admin rights. HR Admin rights gave them access to everyone’s appraisal in PerformanceHub, as well as access to all configuration areas.
The new HR Partner user type does not have access to PerformanceHub’s configuration areas and only has access to employee data for employees in their assigned zone(s). In addition to this, you also choose whether HR Partners can edit users in their zone (add/remove employees, change the org structure, that sort of thing).
An HR Partner will have access to reports, dashboards and dashboard notifications, but only for the users in their zone.
If you would like help setting up HR Partners for your organisation, then please get in touch.
Enhanced Feature: Objectives, Interims and Appraisal Dashboards
We made these dashboards a lot simpler to read. We have also made it a lot easier to get an overview of progress in the organisation. We also squished a couple of bugs whist we were at it.
Enhanced Feature: Objectives, Interims and Appraisal Status Reports
Managers have access to these status reports for their team down. We have incorporated the changes we made to the dashboards into these status reports, again, making them easier to interpret.
Naming Change: Grandfathering
We had several comments about the terms Grandfather and Grandfathering, so based on your feedback, we have changed these to a more generic term of Second Line Manager. Please do let us know if there is any other terminology that people find jarring.
General Bug Squishing
We’ve address a number of small issues in this release.
