Compensation

  • Compensation Improvement to Recommender View: Center employees in the compensation review process with our new card view, which replaces the table view for comp recommenders.

This view will make it easier for managers to get the key information they need all in one place and make better decisions. Read more. 
  • Compensation Band Sharing: Share compensation data with managers and stakeholders outside of the compensation cycles. With this update, admins can share specific comp bands to non-Admins, such as managers or recruiters.

Engagement

  • Improved Accessibility in Engagement: Our new accessible color palette has been added to new locations within Engagement. Find updates to the distribution bar found under ‘headers’ and ‘table’ views, background UI for comments, and the progress bar indicator for survey responses, among a few other places.

Engagement

  • Personalized Survey Notifications: Users will now get a more personalized notification when an Engagement survey or pulse view is shared.

Learn more about adding past performance ratings to calibration tables.
  • Custom Filtering Within Reviews Calibration: Admins and non-admins alike can now filter calibration tables with custom attributes. As companies scale, calibration facilitation often gets delegated to department leads or functional HRBPs. These users do not always have “super admin” or “system admin” privileges in Lattice, but do need visibility to more sensitive fields that help with calibration facilitation. Now, calibration admins can dive deeper into Lattice and perform more effective calibration. Learn more.
  • Org Chart Review Cycle Settings Redesign: Last month, we launched a redesigned setup process for Org Chart Review Cycles. This month, we’ve redesigned the Org Chart Review Settings page to be consistent with updates made to the setup process.

Grow

  • 1:1 Action Items Due Dates |1:1 action items can now be assigned due dates. This feature will help managers provide more clear expectations to their direct reports, and help direct reports stay accountable and communicate progress on tasks. Read more about how to manage your 1:1 action items.
