Manage employee performance with

SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals

Employees are your most important success factor. But only if they are motivated, deployed in the best possible way and managed by good managers. Identifying the respective individual strengths, recognizing talents and promoting the most suitable ones is the task of performance management.
At the same time, it is important that employees and managers understand and identify with the company's strategic goals. Still, you as a company must be able to make short-term course corrections. The solution is flexible and dynamic target agreement systems.


More performance. More satisfaction. More success.

Companies that, as part of the Human Resources Development regularly track the performance of their employees, can manage them more effectively and respond more quickly and appropriately to changes in the competitive environment.

SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals provides employers and employees with a powerful solution to help them accomplish this important task. For goal setting, companies can use the software to define the company's key strategic goals and break them down into individual employee objectives. In addition, there are individual goals that - if necessary - can be adjusted at any time.

Performance appraisals can assess both the what (goals) and the how (competencies). In this context, it is helpful that employees can give a self-assessment. To better align these, the tool can be used to gather employee feedback from a variety of sources. Explicit 360° feedback is also possible, for example with the add-on 360-degree feedback (see flyer in German).

This comprehensive view can also be used to identify competence gaps in the organization and, with the help of SAP SuccesFactors Learning development measures can be defined at the same time.

With the help of this information, the performance of individual employees or entire teams can be compared objectively, e.g. in a calibration across functions or teams. Talents in the company become visible and can then be considered for succession , for example, or receive targeted development plans , e.g., by integrating the module SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development.

For companies that want to establish a transparent performance appraisal process already during the probationary period of new employees, the digital probationary period form for SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals is worthwhile. Click here for the flyer (in German).
