FAQ

Is Encompassing Visions a Human Resource Information System (HRIS)?

No, not at all. Encompassing Visions is the engine to capture Job Data and Competencies, and apply that data to Job Evaluation and Talent Management processes.

What if I don’t have an HRIS installed?
Depending on the size of your organization, this may be your lucky day! The standard functionalities in Encompassing Visions when interfacing with a robust Payroll System may be all you need to provide sophisticated information about people and the work they are doing.
What if I already have an HRIS installed?
That’s great! Encompassing Visions interfaces with most HRIS platforms on the market today. Data can be shared simply and securely, so no double entry is required.
‘What if I already have an HRIS and a Talent Management system in place?

No problem. Our Job Evaluation Methodology can be introduced independently to ensure base pay for jobs meets pay equity standards. If your learning and growth feedback process is paper-based, we can automate it, and seamlessly anchor your future reviews to the jobs people are actually doing.

What really differentiates Encompassing Visions from the other point factor job evaluation systems?

Jobs have gotten significantly more complicated since the early 1950’s when the first job evaluation methodologies were introduced. They take considerable time to learn and apply consistently. Most, then and now, have a limited number of factors, may be spreadsheet-based, and use ‘Guide charts’ and hieroglyphics to explain why someone is paid what they are. We believe this is no longer wise with such an educated and interested audience working in organizations, particularly if employee engagement levels are to be considered. So, as a way to contrast these other methodologies with Encompassing Visions, Envitae was designed for the 21st century. Practically speaking, it requires software to perform the calculations because the number of factors, validation reports and system checks are exhaustive. Our system generated job descriptions INCLUDE evaluation rationale, so people will know there were no questions left ‘unasked’ and no aspects of their work left ‘unmeasured.’

What happens to my customized text when I upgrade? Am I going to lose it?
Absolutely not! When you upgrade we ensure that all of your customizations – alternate terms, Questionnaire text, Competency definitions, Competency Review questions, etc. – are all retained and carried over into the newest versions.
