Goal Weighting

Goals can be weighted for use in performance reviews. Goal weighting indicates which goals are most important, allowing employees to prioritize their work and day-to-day tasks.

In a performance review, goal weights display next to each goal. The weighted average of the goals is used to determine the score of the Goals section.


Managers and employees should collaborate on the weights assigned to each goal. This ensures that all involved understand top priorities, so there are no surprises during performance reviews.

Add or Change Goal Weighting

Add or change goal weighting on the Add/Change Goal Weighting page.
