The final rating would be relative to the rating of the other employees. Over a period of time this also acts as an effective tool to refine the rating tendencies. It is also an inherent part of performance appraisal because it is finally the numeric score which is considered for promotions and annual increments.
Managers can do Normalization from the Home screen (Performance -> Normalization).
In Normalization managers can check whether the idealized bell curve set by the HR is matching the actual bell curve, which is determined based on the ratings given.
Managers can review the Rating Distribution at different levels such as Organization units, locations and team.
In cases of deviation in the rating distribution, final ratings can be modified easily and the Bell Curve refreshes automatically.
Here the managers can review the rating given to the employees and he can approve, reject or change the Grades given to the employees before publishing them.
