How emPerform Compensation Manager Works:

STEP 1: Employee performance data is collected in emPerform

  • Performance reviews
  • Employee self-assessments
  • 360° multi-rater reviews
  • Surveys
  • Direct import

Based on your weights and measures, a final performance score is calculated and fed into emPerform’s Compensation Manager.

STEP 2: emPerform calculates compensation recommendations and displays all budgets

emPerform’s configurable Compensation Manager gives one place where your managers and compensation leaders can make quick, fair, and accurate compensation changes for their teams.

  • Merit-based increases
  • Promotions
  • Bonuses
  • Variable pay adjustments
  • Anniversary adjustments

emPerform can display recommendations, mid/max points, and compa-ratio details and will automatically pro-rate recommendations and adjust for multiple currencies. All compensation groups can be assigned a budget – so users can make decisions within set guidelines.

STEP 3: Compensation plans are assigned & completed – on time!

We understand that every organisation has a unique salary-planning process. As such, compensation reviews can be assigned to specific managers or department-heads in charge of making recommendations for employee groups.

Just like emPerform performance reviews, compensation plans can be routed to multiple levels of approval automatically – ensuring plans are completed by the right people at the right time. Status dashboards and automated alerts ensure compensation decisions are submitted on-time.

Automated budget tracking, approval workflows and status reports ensure pay for performance decisions are completed on time and on-budget.

STEP 4: Results are automatically compiled and ready for reporting & export!

Gone are the days of HR spending days compiling compensation spreadsheets! Once all compensation plans have been submitted and approved in emPerform, managers and HR administrators can easily download a single consolidated view for complete reporting and easy export. Voila!

Want to make things even easier? Ask about integration options to and from any existing HRIS, payroll, enterprise resource planning, or workforce management system!
