All performance objectives in SPPAS are either a Core values or Key Business Results objective. They are together called Key Result Areas.
Core values are objectives that an organization consider as key to their mission. Every employee must be assessed on these objectives.
All Core Values have a priority Rating of “3”. We recommend (and best practice) that you have at least 5 Core Values to be assessed. Each Core Value should be rated in line with how the employee performs his or her duties.
Key Business Results are objectives that are specific to departments or employees that must be achieved during the assessment period.
Key Business Results can have a priority of 1, 2 or 3 depending on how important the objective is.
