NEXTCHIP modernizes performance management processes with Oracle HCM Cloud

NEXTCHIP shortens review cycle by 50%, gains 360-Degree view of employee performance, and supports talent development strategy with Oracle.

NEXTCHIP Co., Ltd. is a fabless company that specializes in designing semiconductor chips for video security systems, automotive-specific imaging solutions, and next-generation consumer products. NEXTCHIP strives to become a world leader by continuously developing innovative imaging technology products and creating value for customers.  

Previously, NEXTCHIP relied on paperwork to manage its performance review processes. It was unreliable and time consuming for employees to complete appraisals and for the HR team to update and store performance documents. NEXTCHIP wanted to establish a structured evaluation workflow to improve process efficiency and gain valuable insight into workforce performance.


By standardizing the evaluation workflow with Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud, we halved the review cycle time and gained broader employee performance feedback from multiple-rater assessments. This enabled managers to rapidly identify and retain talent and support our growing business.

Business challenges

  • Enable managers to easily share and evaluate employees’ ratings and comments in a shorter cycle by replacing the paper-based processes with a modern and robust performance management system 
  • Improve talent management by gaining a holistic view of review feedback from multiple people, such as subordinates and peers, and providing managers with immediate insight into employee performance 
  • Establish a systematic approach to manage and align employee goals with the company objectives, such as delivering more innovative image processing products in the video security market

"One of the companies that I know of deployed an on-premises HR solution but switched to Oracle within two years. To avoid the trial-and-error process, we selected Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud because it offers the best 360- degree view and multiple-rater reviews functionalities."
—Choi Jong Hyun, CFO, NEXTCHIP Co., Ltd.
