How emPerform Compensation Manager Works:

Step 1


Step 1: Employee performance data is collected in emPerform

  • Performance reviews
  • Employee self-assessments
  • 360° multi-rater reviews
  • Surveys
  • Direct import


Based on your weights and measures, a final performance score is calculated and fed into emPerform’s Compensation Manager.

Step 2


Step 2: emPerform calculates compensation recommendations and displays all budgets


emPerform’s configurable Compensation Manager gives one place where your managers and compensation leaders can make quick, fair, and accurate compensation changes for their teams.

  • Merit-based increases
  • Promotions
  • Bonuses
  • Variable pay adjustments
  • Anniversary adjustments


emPerform can display recommendations, mid/max points, and compa-ratio details and will automatically pro-rate recommendations and adjust for multiple currencies. Users can allocate a budget to each compensation group, enabling them to make decisions within established guidelines.

Step 3


Step 3: Compensation plans are assigned & completed – on time!


We understand that every organization has a unique salary-planning process. As such, compensation reviews can be assigned to specific managers or department-heads in charge of making recommendations for employee groups.


Just like emPerform performance reviews, compensation plans can be routed to multiple levels of approval automatically – ensuring plans are completed by the right people at the right time. Status dashboards and automated alerts ensure compensation decisions are submitted on-time.


Automated budget tracking, approval workflows and status reports ensure pay for performance decisions are completed on time and on-budget.

Step 4


Step 4: Results are automatically compiled and ready for reporting & export!


Gone are the days of HR spending days compiling compensation spreadsheets! Once all compensation plans have been submitted and approved in emPerform, managers and HR administrators can easily download a single consolidated view for complete reporting and easy export. Voila!
