What are performance points?
Performance points represent an intangible reward to users when they achieve or progress toward an organization goal. Administrators set threshold values (upper or lower or both) for various metrics to measure employee performance. When an employee meets or exceeds performance for a metric, performance points are assigned to the employee based on the values set.
Assigning maximum points serves as a way to allocate a priority weight to each metric based on its relative importance, enabling a balanced performance scorecard.
