What is the use of Bell Curve in Profit.co ?

Category: Performance

Profit.co provides an option to review the employee's performance based on the bell curve.

Why this Feature?

  • The Bell Curve approach is applied in performance appraisals as a way of distinguishing elite performers from average performers, and further, segregating below-par employees from the overall average.
  • While calculating the individual Performance Score, Bell Curve helps the HR team to review the employee performance with different curves.

Step 1:

Navigate to Settings → Performance → Dashboard from the left navigation panel.

Bell Curve

In Bell Curve there are three different scores,

  • Targeted Distribution - It will show the architecture defined in the bell curve configuration
  • Overall Score - It will show the actual score provided by the Manager’s/Secondary reviewer’s
  • Calibrated Score - It will show the normalized score by the calibration group members (Employees). This score will display once the calibration process completes.

You can export the report in CSV format.
