Q.14. Why are they called ‘SuccessFactors’?

Because they are behaviors which lead to successful performance in the job.


Q.15. Why are there three levels within the framework?

They describe a range of different types of behavior which are relevant to a range of different job roles. However, the levels are not hierarchical.


Q.16. Are the levels linked to job grades?

No. Just because someone is on a certain job grade, it doesn’t rule out any of the levels. However, if a job is more senior you would expect to see more of the university level behaviours.


Q.17. Are they going to apply to academic staff as well?

There is a similar framework for Strategic Leaders Framework and one for researchers which have been based on Success Factors. The idea going forward is to have something similar for all staff groups in the university.


Q.18. Will Success Factors be used to ‘get rid’ of people?

That is not why they have been developed. They are used to develop individuals. However, if the behaviour(s) are essential to the job and there continues to be no development then it could become a performance issue.


Q.19. What if the employee doesn’t agree with the Success Factors that their manager has chosen?

The manager uses the job analysis information to determine the Success Factor for the role in conjunction with discussions with the individual. However, it is ultimately the manager’s decision.


Q.20. Once a Success Factor has been chosen for a role can it be changed?

Yes; it depends on the requirements / needs of the role at any point. It is fluid and therefore may change year on year.


Q.21. If a Success Factor is changed during the year how do you know what you will be reviewed against at the next PDR?

Through dialogue / communication between the manager and the individual. The change can also be flagged on the PDR form.


Q.22. Do you have to choose the same level (e.g. self) for all the Success Factors identified?

No. However, it may be that they tend towards one level.


Q.23. If SuccessFactors are important – how do you pick the right ones?

Use the job analysis information and advice from your HRO and other managers with the same roles to determine the 3-5 core success factors. It will become easier with practice.


Q.24. What if the Success Factor for a role is what the job requires as a technical output e.g. communicating for a careers’ adviser?

There may be a ‘technical’ requirement to do that but successFactors are about ‘how’ the job is done / the behaviours required in carrying out their job.


Q.25. If an individual achieves all the Success Factors does that mean they will get promoted / get more pay?

Not directly. Obviously the more successful the individual is in their role / can demonstrate effective job performance / demonstrates additional behaviours, then this can be used as evidence in any job application or pay review case.


Q.26. What support will I have in using the SuccessFactors?

Managers will receive training; Success Factor documentation and guidance on its use will be available on the HR web site; members of the HR team will be able to provide advice.


Q.27. Won’t the choosing of the SuccessFactors be too subjective?

There is always an element of subjectivity in any process dealing with people. However, Success Factors are objective standards or benchmarks with good examples.


Q.28. How much evidence in assessing Success Factors will we be expected to produce?

Look over the previous 12 months for examples and pick out the 2 or 3 which demonstrate the Success Factors the most.


Q.29. Won’t the assessment of SuccessFactors take too long?

Initially, making the assessment may take some time because it is a new process and we’re dealing with new concepts but it is worthwhile for the benefits they bring.
