Performance Management Software

Personnel development with tangible, company-wide benefits

Performance reviews and feedback meetings keep evolving just as your employees do. However, if performance appraisals are documented manually, at several different locations or irregularly, this is neither efficient nor helpful or even compliant with data protection regulations. We have a better idea.

Effortlessly clear documentation

No more errors caused by manual data transfers or bonus calculations
Bonuses are reasons for joy, so why should their calculation and payment be anything but? Have specialist departments enter their own targets and results to reduce the administrative effort for HR. Any bonus entitlements are then automatically transferred to preparatory payroll accounting.

Authoritative, transparent, GDPR-compliant
Poorly documented or undocumented employee performance is difficult to evaluate, whether there is a change in line manager or an employee’s future is under discussion. Personio makes it a breeze to file and retrieve performance appraisals at any time.

Motivation and satisfaction

Less fluctuation and greater performance
If employees are deployed and developed in line with their skills and abilities, they are not only more known to stay longer with a company, they also perform better.

A sound basis for salary and promotion decisions
Authoritative documentation provides a solid foundation for better and more transparent decisions, whether a management position needs to be filled, an employee asks for a raise or a problem is starting to escalate.

Freely definable performance indicators

Not all employees can be measured by the same yardstick. Define individual goals and targets for each employee, or reuse predefined ones.

Flexible target agreements

Define monthly, quarterly or annual goals and targets for each employee, choosing from any number of qualitative and quantitative performance indicators.

KPI-based bonus calculations

Calculate bonus payments based on predefined target agreements and link agreements with performance reviews and feedback meetings. Personio calculates pro-rata bonus entitlements and automatically transfers bonus amounts to preparatory payroll accounting.

Defining KPIs with Personio

You can define as many KPIs as wanted or choose pre-existing KPIs to add to the agreed-upon goals. A KPI in Personio can be binary, quantitative, or qualitative.

  • Binary: the goal is achieved or not (Ex- Training attended)
  • Qualitative: not directly measurable (Ex- Employee satisfaction)
  • Quantitative: directly measurable (Ex- Sales goal)

Define for every KPI if, and to what degree, it will influence the calculation of the bonus for the chosen period.

In the employee profile, under the “Salary” tab, it is possible to add bonuses that are either flexible (manually recorded) or are calculated based on the previously determined goal achievement in the performance section. The bonus will then be automatically added to the salary. Based on the settings, this can occur at the end of the period, after the period, or evenly distributed throughout the period.
