New LIFT Process: Comment on LIFT Behaviors throughout the Performance Year
We heard your requests from the latest Customer Support Survey, and we are happy to announce that managers and employees can now comment on and track LIFT behaviors throughout the performance year! We've created a place for you to do this in the Manage Goals section of Manager Space in Infor HR. For each employee, open the goal titled "Comment on LIFT Behaviors Here" and use the comment function to comment on and track LIFT behaviors. The option to include comments supports a culture of ongoing feedback and will make the year-end process easier!
