Review Goal Weight Calculations

Goal Weight Calculations

Performance Reviews uses goals to rate an employee as part of the performance review process. When goal weights are established, goals are calculated based on the assigned weight.

Total goal weight can be less than, more than, or equal to 100%. The sum of goal weights, totaling less than or more than 100%, is adjusted to 100% when ratings are calculated. If the total goal weight is 0%, ratings are calculated equally in the review.

Goal Weight Examples

Examples explain goal weights and calculated percentages.
