Users with the appropriate security settings are now able to Mass Finalize Performance Reviews for employees under My Employees > Performance Management > Performance Reviews Finalize > Mass Finalize.

The Add setting controls the ability to add courses or history which then can be edited, and the View/Edit permission controls the ability to Edit history.

Profiles: PDF Download of Succession Profile in Employee Information

An employee’s assigned Succession Profile can now be downloaded in PDF. This is done by clicking theDownload PDF button in the Employee Information page, then selecting Succession in the Profiles section of the To PDF pop-up list, and again clicking the Download PDF button in the pop-up window.

Succession Charts: New Charts Added to Dashboard

New charts are now available to be added to the Succession Charts widget for employee dashboards.

Now, within the dashboard, you can pull in the Succession Charts widget, then configure the widget with the charts listed below.

Succession Charts: Performance Metric Integration and Maximum Percentage

Succession Plans containing a Performance metric value originating from Performance Reviews have now been integrated and are available in the Metric Pie Chart, the Metric Bar Chart, and the Talent Matrix Chart within the Succession Charts widget of employee dashboards when adding the Performance metric.

Reports: Employee Headcount 

A new report, Employee Headcount, is now available under My Reports > HR > Employee Headcount. This report can be used to identify how many employees were in each selected status as of a specified date using the As Of Date and Employee Statuses filters.

Workflows: Workflow for Hiring Stages 

A new workflow, Hiring Stage Change Request, is now available for users and can be linked to specific Application hiring stages. This allows users to utilize Workflows to help manage Job Applications and the hiring process, which was previously a manual process. To Do’s are generated from within Workflows with Steps/Actions that move Applications through the stages of hiring.

The workflow can be set to Approve Automatically. It can also be used to send emails to the Applicant or certain employees, such as the Hiring Manager or Recruiter for the Job Requisition, when a change occurs to an Applicant’s Hiring Stage.

The Applicant Hiring Stage Change Request Workflow allows an Applicant’s record to be edited via a Modify step. This allows users to schedule an interview, send an Applicant a Communication Template, change a status, or populate a rank, all from within the workflow process. Lastly, this workflow can have nested HR Actions and Checklists to help automate the onboarding process

The Payroll Recap & Funding report is available in the Payroll Recap Funding link in the View Payroll step of the Payroll Prep Process, in the Payroll Quick Links, or directly under My Reports > Payroll > Payroll Recap & Funding.

New! Workload Manager Added to Scheduler

A new Scheduler feature named Workload Manager is now available. This tool allows customers to input business transactional data or metrics by cost center and time of day, and automatically determine workload coverage needs. A workload conversion feature maps the business transactional data or metric to the appropriate skill(s) required for that time and cost center. This workload coverage can then be used to create shifts to which employees can be accurately and efficiently scheduled to meet business needs.
