SAP SuccessFactors Calibration


  • The Calibration Executive Review feature enables HR Executives to analyze aggregate data across all sessions for a given Calibration template
  • This feature is designed to resolve what some customers call "the roll-up" where actual calibration is necessary at the small groups and lower levels, but middle and upper management mostly need visibility across sessions to analyze.
  • Executive Review enables the handling of large data sets (something Calibration sessions are not designed for) and enabling analysis for upper level management
  • Permissions can be granted as needed for the company, but the tool is specifically designed for HR to run the Executive Review.

Typical Roles in a Calibration Session:

  • Facilitator: Read/Write/Finalize
  • Owner: Read/Write
  • Executive Reviewer: Read/Write/Finalize

Executive Review allows you to enable or disable standard Calibration graphs for the Executive Review page:


Filters to analyze data:


Sensitive Data Options

Unique to Executive Review, you have the option to also enable “Sensitive Data” fields. We support:

  • Gender
  • Risk of Loss
  • Impact of Loss
  • Reason for Leaving

These are available for all Executive Review users to see. HR Executives can hide it during a review session, but anyone with full access to the page will see these fields plotted against rating data.

For Sensitive Data, select the rating scale you want to analyze:
