Score and Final Calculation
Based on targets and actual, performance scores are calculated while adding goals. If actual figures are not available, the performance score will not be calculated. However, employees can write up actual figures themselves later. When actual figures are entered by an employee, system automatically calculates the performance score (final score) and it can be used while conducting performance appraisals.
The formulae for calculating the score are following:
|ACTUAL/TARGET x 100 (for KPI MAXIMIZE, the HIGHER the BETTER)|
|TARGET/ACTUAL x 100 (KPI MINIMIZE: the LOWER the BETTER)|
The formula to obtain the final score is: SCORE x WEIGHT/100.
Final scores can be used to determine bonus allocation, salary increase, and promotions.
