While important, conducting employee reviews is often a challenge in many organizations. Human resource employees invest a significant amount of time in preparing, managing and ensuring performance evaluations are delivered on time, while making sure they are accurate according to the latest guidelines and procedures. Instead, companies need to focus on identifying and developing human capital to remain competitive and to grow profitability. To be successful, it is important for human resource employees to shift focus from unproductive routines to developing the intellectual assets of an organization.


The Ultimus Employee Performance Review takes control of the employee review and makes sure the evaluations are delivered within given time frames, according to company guidelines and with appropriate quality. By tracking all activities, human resource departments have insight into the status, content and performance of the reviews, and are also notified if corrective actions need to be taken. This provides the HR staff with the opportunity to focus on important and productive tasks and to develop the intellectual capital of the organization.
