How to align your individual goals to higher order goals

Who is this guide for?

Performance Users

Create organizational transparency and strategic alignment by aligning your individual and department goals to higher-order department and company goals.

Align new or existing goals

You can align your goal to one or more higher-order department and company goals while creating the goal by searching for the name of the department or company under Goal alignments and selecting the desired goal.

NOTE: Aligning your goals ensures that they’re visible in the Goal tree view.


If you have already created your goal, you can return to the goal at any time and select Edit in order to add one or more goal alignments.


Please Note: It is only possible to align a goal to another when it meets the following criteria:

  • It’s still in progress

  • It’s not past it’s due date (i.e, Goals will not be displayed in the alignment list if the goal has been ‘accomplished’ or if the goal is past its due date)

The Alignment box is limited to showing twenty-five goals, so if there are more than twenty-five, you will have to search for them
