What is it?

Users can now  launch role assessment forms for their current roles directly in Career Worksheet. Previously, they had to navigate to Performance Management to create or complete role assessment forms for their current role. In role assessment forms, users can rate themselves (and be rated by their managers) on exactly those competencies that are required for a certain job role.

Why is it important?

With this enhancement, employees can be directed to the Career Worksheet section for all of their personal development needs and activities. Career Worksheet can become the central starting point for employees to find out how they do on their current role, and where to improve on in order to move into another desired role.


Admins can configure the Career Worksheet template with this additional menu option. To do so, they need to access the Career Worksheet xml template to turn on the feature and to assign the Performance form template for the current role assessment. The form can then be prepopulated with the role-specific required competencies.
