Task

Task Immediate superior decides the milestones and tasks within a project for each resource. Assigns the tasks in UPRAiZAL along with specifying the reviewers who will review the task.

Self Assessment

Self Assessment Employees participation is the key factor, they assess their own performance after completion of the task. Since the employee has to choose from a list of descriptive parameters (and not mere numbers), the self assessment is also done objectively.

Immediate Superior Assessment

Immediate Superior Assessment Rating is not based on mere numbers but an option of descriptive phrases is provided while rating against each criteria on which the task is assessed. The criteria for task appraisal are configurable and can be changed from organization to organization, from department to department.

Cumulative Tasks Rating

Cumulative Tasks Rating A comprehensive performance summary showing the overall employee rating provides a one-stop insight of one’s performance.

Point In Time Rating

Point In Time Rating Evaluate each employee at every stage of work execution for point in time rating.

 

 

Why UPRAiZAL

Because a bell curve grading forces employees of a company into groups, it is called the forced ranking system of appraisal. Some HR professionals believe that a bell curve is the best way to identify the top performers and under-performers, whereas others believe it compels the appraiser to use a forced rating instead of a fair one. However, the task based rating is an accumulation of the ratings earned throughout the year on the tasks accomplished along with an appraisal of some core professional competencies. It,

  • Streamlines process of employee evaluation and performance tracking.
  • Offers greater visibility and transparency for both managers and employees.
  • Increases participation among both managers and employees.
  • Improves consistency and accuracy and objectivity of employee evaluations.
  • Helps the employees improve and succeed with continuous and collaborative feedback.


Case Studies

Case One

Moving away from bell-curve

Case Two

Assessment as an ongoing activity rather than one-time event

Case One

A manager has chosen resources for a new project who are best performers within their individual teams. As organization was following bell curve model for performance appraisal, the company forced the manager to have a certain percentage of resources at the top, certain percentage at the bottom, and a large swath in the middle. As a result, the manager has to rate the employees in such a way that they will fall in specific gradients just for the sake of bell curve requirements despite being sure that they have all performed the same. Effectively, the manager has been forced to rate the bottom 10% to get a low rating, creating “losers” in the group. So even if team is of all high performers, someone is still at the bottom.
UPRAiZAL helps organization to move away from the traditional bell-curve driven year end appraisals by providing continuous ongoing TASK assessment solution to derive year end appraisal as an accumulation of the task ratings earned throughout the year. In the above case, as all the resources performed well, they would be rated at par rather than being force ranked to have someone tagged at the bottom.

Case Two

Helen who took maternity leave for 3 months was performing very well in the previous quarter. However, her performance after long leave was not up to par. Within a month the performance had returned to its previous high level, but the manager’s opinion remained the same that the Helen’s performance was adversely affected by the initial negative impression and Helen has to suffer as manager has rated her being judgemental. This tendency of a manager to make initial positive or negative judgement of an employee and allow that first impression to color or distort later information is common in most of the organizations.
UPRAiZAL helps organizations to have fair and realistic evaluation ON THE CURRENT TASK, and supervisors have the scope to provide more relevant and legitimate comments. In the above case, the employee’s tasks performed prior to her maternity leave would also have been assessed then & there in that quarter, and later, once her performance came back to speed, that would also instantly get recorded. The eventual review/assessment turns out more accurate rather than just a process of clicking on a bunch of canned numbers.

Organization’s most valuable asset are it’s people (HUMAN CAPITAL), yet they remain unsatisfied due to reviews based on the tendency to stereotype or judging by the recent behavior of employees. UPRAiZAL helps organizations to eliminate such distortions in performance assessments with the means of ongoing multi-level task based performance assessments.
