Why Won’t Your HRIS Succeed In Performance Management?

Are you relying solely on your HRIS for performance management? While it may seem like an easy fix, it could do more harm than good. It might hurt your retention rates and cost you more money in the long run.

This increased cost will stem from an inability to link performance to goals, a lack of performance management feedback, and a dissatisfying experience for all parties. This will reduce employee engagement which increases employee turnover. Considering the average cost of hiring a new employee is 20-30% of their annual salary, this should be avoided at all costs.

If you’re ready to streamline your HR processes but aren’t sure how to choose the best performance management software— keep reading.

Pros and Cons of Using HRIS for Performance Management:


  • All-in-one platform for human resources management
  • Ability to launch simple surveys (works well for simple feedback requests, like manager’s or self-review)
  • Cost-effective pricing sometimes


  • Poor data analytics tools
  • Lack of 360-degree feedback
  • Lack of employee surveys
  • Limited customization features
  • Inflexibility
  • Complicated setup
  • Poor user experience
  • High level of admin
  • Lack of customer support
  • Lack of guides and user resources
  • No performance improvement process. For example, no 1:1’s or OKRs

Why Choose a Performance Management Solution over HRIS?

Unlike an HRIS, performance management software is designed specifically to help you track and manage employee performance, set goals, and provide feedback.
