German term or phrase:Personalcontrolling
From brief descriptions of HR software solutions SAP ERP HCM, P&I LOGA, PAISY
Does this mean HR data analysis? "Personnel controlling" only comes up on non-native English websites. Seems to mean more than just HR cost management.
Explanation: Have never heard of anyone talking about Personnel Control or Controlling. Maybe it is applying the German idea of Kontrolle wth its overtones of management to the Personnel function--hence, my suggestion. It might be helpful to see a little more of the context although it won't be much help if it is just part of a list; on the other hand, how are the other members of the list described in German?
I talked to the customer today. She said it meant HR reporting and analysis, but not any kind of employee assessment. Germans certainly overuse the term "Controlling"! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
