Reviewing employee compensation
Once you access a compensation review, the reviewer workbook displays. Depending on how many levels of employees you’re reviewing, you can review compensation changes just for one level or review and approve multiple levels of proposals.
In the reviewer workbook, you can see the following sections:
- Reviewer workbook table
Displays each step of the review cycle process, including submission statuses, key dates, and the names of each reviewer and approver. By looking at the timeline, you can easily see where in the process your proposals are and who is currently reviewing them.
Visualizations show the real-time impact of changes to compensation.
The Budget allocation displays the budgets to which you have access and their real-time status. You can easily see whether a budget allocation has been met or if there’s extra room in the budget. As you make changes to employee base values, the budget allocation charts update to reflect your impact to the budgets. You can hover over the budgets to view a tooltip with more information and a breakdown of each budget (for example, how much is remaining or how much is over budget). You can also change the currency of the budgets you are visualizing by using the Currency dropdown.
The Raise percentage displays the range of the raise percentages that you are being given in the current review. As you make changes to employee base values, the Raise percentage chart updates to reflect the impact of the raises you give. When you’re reviewing multiple levels of reviews, the chart updates to show the raise percentage for each reviewer.
Visualizations can be collapsed at any time.
Displays the list of employees whose compensation you’re reviewing and all their relevant performance and compensation data. When you have multiple levels of employee review, each level can be expanded and collapsed. The columns that display in the reviewer workbook table are customized to your company.
By default, all eligible employees display in the list. You can use the View dropdown to filter the list to display:
Displays all employees underneath you in the review structure. This includes employees who are ineligible for the current compensation review (for comparison purposes).
Displays only employees underneath you in the review structure who are eligible for the current compensation review.
Employees with comments
Displays only employees underneath you in the review structure who are eligible for the current compensation review who have comments entered by other reviewers and approvers.
Employees with exceptions
Displays only employees underneath you in the review structure with proposed compensation changes that exceed the established guidelines.
Employees with exceptions can display with a flag icon next to the value in the Base raise amount column (depending on how your admin has configured the compensation review).
You can also use the Department and Reviewer dropdowns to filter by department and by specific reviewer:
- Selecting a department displays all employees in the specified department.
- Selecting a reviewer displays all the employees for whom the reviewer is responsible for reviewing and approving. This can include multiple levels of review, depending on the reviewer’s position in the reporting structure.
