Anteo Consulting, an enterprise applications implementation consulting firm for the public and private sectors, today announced the successful completion of the first statewide implementation of an online employee performance management system, known as ePerformance, for the State of Georgia.
Last year, Georgia began implementation of a new performance management program which focuses on employee pay for performance. This new process utilizes PeopleSoft ePerformance to increase employee accessibility and create consistency by focusing on goals and competencies throughout the enterprise.
Steve Stevenson, Commissioner of the State Personnel Administration (SPA), notes that, "The ePerformance system, which is the first component of the PeopleSoft module rollout, not only provides standardized performance management processes, but also drives individual and organizational performance improvements, improves accountability, and further, supports the Governor's vision for Georgia to be the 'Best Managed State' and an employer of choice."
Initially, the ePerformance system was rolled out to 25,000 state employees with Anteo Consulting providing strategic consulting services to SPA, including fit/gap analysis, design, strategy, development, change management and training. The statewide launch, completed July 1, 2009, phased in the remaining 63,000 employees online. The State Personnel Administration led this initiative with Anteo Consulting providing oversight and continuous management as new agencies were added and trained in the use of the ePerformance system.
"With a state-wide project that would transform an outdated, paper-based performance review business process, our strategy was to develop a phased implementation plan that would allow for workforce acceptance of the new online performance review process while providing a flexible delivery model that successfully transferred implementation knowledge to the State's team for the second phase of the project roll-out," said Rob Prinzo, principal and VP of Anteo Consulting.
