Talent Management

LightWork™ Talent Management is a dynamic talent management system designed to help you identify strengths and areas for improvement in employee performance and set goals for employee and company success. Web-based with familiar Microsoft Windows navigation, LightWork can stand alone with its own HR module and can also integrate with all HR and payroll solutions.

LightWork Analytics

LightWork provides quick visual access to the information contained in the system.  You can view appraisals in the system by workflow step, appraisal manager and a host of other filters.  Drill down capabilities are available to provide you the detail contained in a dashboard. LightWork provides easy access to goals, journals, team members and appraisals that are coming due or are past due.  LightWork provides an “ALL WORK” widget that displays: appraisals in the queue and any item that requires an action by the person.  All Dashboards are configurable so they can be personalized to provide each person with efficient and comfortable views.

Configurable Work Process

Utilize several standard appraisal workflow options along with your ability to customize an appraisal workflow. There is no limit in the system to the number of appraisal approval levels, but practically you would want to keep the number of approval levels reasonable.  If you so desire, LightWork has the option to require that HR be the final approver.  LightWork also has an acknowledgment option whereby the supervisor and employee are required to “sign off” on the final appraisal within the system.

Appraisal Lists

Use our available lists to find the appraisal(s) you are looking for quickly and easily. Get a list of all employee appraisals, employees, missing a primary email or manager, or use our appraisal filter to create a list specific to your needs.

Employee Goals

Managers and employees alike can define individual employee goals of a professional or personal nature for a holistic personal development plan. Future goals and objectives can be set to appear on the next appraisal for easy assessment and follow up.

Employee Journals

Performance Appraisals traditionally take place yearly, or perhaps every quarter. Trying to gather the material you need to do an accurate portrayal of an employee that encompasses their whole year of work is difficult. 

9 Box Classification

LightWork’s 9 Box Classification is a way of classifying employees based on their potential and performance to determine where they fit within the 9 Box Chart and as a result where the company can see them in the future.

When looking for a flexible tool that gives you a comprehensive view of your workforce, your first choice is a talent management software that offers a 360-degree appraisal. Read more...

Disallowed Phrases

This allows you to add phrases or words that should not be used during the appraisal process. Any phrases or words added will be flagged during the appraisal process. 

Phrase Selector

The phrase selector provides an extensive library of comments for reviewers to use or modify to best articulate their feedback for an employee. The phrases displayed are based on the competency being rated and the score the reviewer has selected.


Review Groups

LightWork Talent Management has an array review methods, such as supervisors only, peer review, collaborative review, and much more. But if any those don't meet your needs, create a custom review group that can be used during the appraisal process. 

Reviewer Flexibility

LightWork enables you to define a multitude of ways to designate who should be involved in the appraisal process.   Some of the options available to you are: a supervisor only appraisal, a supervisor and employee appraisal, a peer appraisal by employee’s supervisor and supervisor’s direct reports, a 360 appraisal review with supervisor, employee and employees direct reports, a 360 extended appraisal review with supervisor, supervisor’s direct reports, employee and employees direct reports, a custom appraisal review where a list of people can be assigned to provide input to the appraisal.


With LightWork, importing your employee data from an excel sheet or another software system is simple.

Word Check

The word check feature helps reduce errors in appraisals and other documentation by recognizing language that is considered inappropriate as defined in the LightWork setup.
