The HR and senior managers can access the performance in detailed breakdowns and also get the reviews from subordinates, peers, and clients to get a general idea of the competency of the concerned person. These chunks of data are compiled in the form of task-specific reports and as employee utilization reports to make a clear outline of specific and general traits. They serve a basis for the well informed and timely decisions. The internal job placements are also possible, which reduce the hiring cost, and the company can retain the employees in case of multiple locations.
