Objective Weights

Overview

Managers can assign weights to objectives for their direct reports. An objective weight score will be calculated as an average of all objectives' progress. Weights can convey each objective's importance and priority within a business period. Objective weights can also allow organizations to apply weighting to goal completion calculations for compensation planning purposes.

FAQs

Can a direct report create their own objective weights?

Objective weights can only be created and updated by the objective owner's manager.

Can I add objective weights to team objectives?

Yes. If an employee is a member of a team that owns an objective their manager can set a unique weight for the team-owned objective (each member of the Team will have their own unique, unrelated weight for the Team-owned objective).

Can I set a custom name for weights? 

Yes. You can do this by going to Admin → Platform Configuration → Branding → Naming.
