Managing Performance

managing_performance.gifAt a global level Totara allows you to mirror your organisational structure and job positions and use this information for assigning learning plans to learners, and reporting on the completion and achievements of your staff.

Totara supports competency based learning allowing you to set competency structures and assign courses to the competencies as evidence of achievement. Competencies can be assigned to an organisation or job role ensuring that any user in the organisation or job position is aware of their competency requirements.

Totara allows you to manage staff performance across all learning. The learning plan features allow learners to create a learning plan with their manager and see their progress as they complete courses and achieve competencies assigned to their learning plan. When a learner creates a learning plan it can automatically bring in any competencies and courses assigned to the learner’s part of the organisation and job role, helping you manage your staff performance.

Through the manager dashboard managers are able to oversee their staff learning. They have access to staff learning plans, records of learning and face-to-face bookings. Managers are able to easily access information for reporting purposes.
