Our objectives and reviews module provides you with a way to effectively manage and enhance  employee productivity. 

Setting clear objectives is important to:

  • Create clarity over the direction of your organisation, departments and individuals, ensures everyone is pulling in the same direction. 
  • Provide visibility of objectives easily on mobile devices, tablets and PC ensures employees are always aware of what is expected of them. 
  • Allow progress changes and comments ensures that manger and employee alike can see performance is in relation to the objective and intervene if needed.
