Job-Based Competency Ratings on Reviews

When completing a performance review for an employee, job competency rating targets can be displayed on a performance review.

Job competency rating targets appear in the Competencies page of a performance review to assist a reviewer in rating each competency. Talent Administrators can enable the display of minimum proficiency levels for job competencies in a performance review template. Once enabled and when a review is distributed, the minimum proficiency level for a competency appears directly under a competency, allowing reviewers to use this information when rating an employee. Once in a review, the job competency target shows the level at which an employee should be performing for a competency. For example, when rating the Negotiating competency for an employee in the Sales job, the employee should be performing at level 4. Reviewers can then determine how to rate a competency based on the target displayed for each competency.

Confirm the Rating Scale for Talent Management Settings

Before viewing job competency rating targets on reviews, ensure the minimum proficiency level rating scale, in the Talent Management Settings page, matches the competency review scale defined for the Review Template.

Navigation:Menu > System Configuration > Talent Management Setup > Talent Management

  2. Review the Job-based Competencies section to confirm the rating scale selected in the Minimum Proficiency Level Rating Scale field.
