The Power of ReportingBy: Natalie Trudel

A lot of focus is placed on streamlining and automating employee performance management processes. There are many reasons why this is the case –  reduced administrative costs, decreased human error, effective archiving of past reviews, automated succession plans and compensation management ; however, one of the ultimate goals of automating talent management is the ability to report and analyze performance data. After all, analytics display results and are crucial for decision making.

Reporting and analysis can help you determine (among many other things):

• Which managers have a tendency to rate either too high or too low
• Who your top performers and high potentials are
• How many people are contributing to the overall goals of the organization
• What they’re doing as individuals to support those goals
• Who is above and below average in terms of performance
• Results between divisions, departments and positions
• Year over year employee performance trends and rating changes


Overall, there is a great power in the ability to efficiently generate accurate and timely reports and share them with different levels within the organization.

Proper employee performance reporting and analytics should be the backbone of many HR and company goals. It is no longer enough to rely on traditional, administrative HR reports to express the health of a company’s employee performance. In order to remain competitive, an organization must have clear insight into the status of their biggest investment – their talent. It might, however, be overwhelming to begin planning an effective employee performance and analytics strategy that will make the most of your automated system.
