Key Concept

Many organizations are embracing performance management to identify and compensate top performers. Corporations use the Performance Management tool to get a 360-degree feedback (appraisal) on their employees. HR generalists use the performance management tool to conduct calibrations. Managers use the performance management tool to set team goals, identify development needs, and integrate the training needs to the learning solution. SAP ERP HCM Performance Management enhancement package 4 has a new user interface and makes conducting performance management an easy process.

Many managers take pride in developing the professional aspirations of their employees. SAP Performance Management enhancement package 4 provides many new features that facilitate this task. These new features include:

  • User interface for the pre-defined performance management process is in Web Dynpro for ABAP. It uses Rich Islands for Adobe Flash.
  • Facility to cascade goals
  • Enhanced integration to the SAP Enterprise Learning. When an employee logs in to SAP Enterprise Learning, she can see the courses that the manager has assigned her to attend.
  • Tighter integration of employees’ development plans with SAP Enterprise Learning
  • Managers can perform team calibration in SAP functionality for manager self-services
