Professional Objectives and Development Needs - How to create and manage

Professional objectives and development needs are identified during a performance review period or at any stage during the worker's life-cycle. Employee objectives can be created and managed in a range of different ways:

  • Entered by the Assessor or Assessee at the end of completing their Online Performance Review via Self Service
  • Employees can submit personal objectives via Self Service
  • Managers can submit professional objectives from within core Citation HR Software

A Personal Objective is not part of any performance review. It is for the employee's own goals and development and will not be assessed.
