The system integrates job identification, training development and performance appraisal under a single system to support competency assessment and mapping of training and career development road map for employees.
The following assistance will be provided:
- Familiarisation with the features of InTrAC™ and how to configure the default system settings to the required processes;
- Help on getting started with electronic performance appraisal including the choice of appraisal formats, the use of performance indicators, results expectation or assessment factors;
- Installation of a local copy of InTrAC™ including configuring the system defaults and database settings (web-version will be hosted by cxSurbana);
- Training with hands-on practice; and
- Telephone and email support.
The system is designed to assist the HR manager in identifying training needs of employees and monitoring their performance against agreed targets. Employee’s training needs are derived based on the differences between competencies required for the job and the employee’s current skill level. The template for employee’s performance appraisal will be based on a pre-defined combination of Key Performance Indicators, Key Results Expected and/or Performance Factors to derive a balanced scorecard for the employee.
- Fee excludes computer and network hardware, third party software, licenses, service providers’ fees and customisation.
- For the web version hosted by cxSurbana, there will be an annual recurring fee (includes GST) of S$214 for the 1st 50 users and S$53.50 for each subsequent user.
