Accomplish More with Oracle Performance Management Cloud

We feel it in our bones at this time of year. ‘Tis better to give than to receive, and what HR department wouldn’t want to give the business higher-performing employees? Getting the best out of workers involves much more than annual performance reviews. It includes setting goals and ensuring that the necessary skills are accessible via learning and training programs

What would it mean for your staff to better accomplish their goals? Welcome to the 8th Day of Giving...

Providing meaningful guidance is also important. According to Gallup, only 23% of employees believe they currently receive valuable feedback, with a paltry 14% saying their existing review processes inspire them to improve. This is especially daunting in a fluid and fast-moving job market, where both companies and employees are looking to remain relevant. 

So, what are the characteristics of a technology platform that helps employees accomplish their career aspirations while maintaining market competitiveness? In our experience, it’s a mixture of contextual learning, tailored career development, and real-time goal management, supported by collaborative features that drive accountability and consistency. 

Finally, the right technology will also incentivize younger generations to remain with a company. As my colleague Lauren wrote in a blog post last year, millennials in particular require consistent feedback and defined paths forward that help them feel valued in the workplace.

Take Your Employees’ Skills to the Next Level
Is your company looking to track workplace accomplishments? Oracle HCM Cloud includes multiple modules within our Talent Management solution that help ensure alignment between employee goals and business objectives. Our solutions are used to attract and retain talent by all kinds of organizations, from leading industrial equipment manufacturers to local governments. 

This holiday, as you assess the year past and plan for the year ahead, why not spend a few minutes checking out what Oracle has to offer? Feel free to reach out for more information. We’d be delighted to help. 

Catch up on the rest of the 12 Days of Giving
