Managing employees is always a huge responsibility and ensuring that they are productive, engaged, and rewarded becomes even more daunting as your workforce expands. The goal, of course, is for your team and your organization to continue to grow and prosper. Despite the great resignation, there are thousands of next-generation workers joining the workforce every single year.
How can you best maximize and evaluate performance?
Concepts to Consider
1. Productivity and Goal Management
Before stopping to consider whether your employees are performing appropriately, you must first ensure that you’ve provided proper guidance in setting measurable goals and objectives and managing the tasks that support the goals. Establishing OKRs or Objectives and Key Results will ensure that your people stay focused on the goal and not be distracted by tasks that may not contribute to the desired outcome.
2. Check-ins and Collaboration
Team check-ins and one-on-ones with managers and employees are essential to engagement and communication. With so many positions moving to be remote work, regularly scheduled meetings to review performance, collaborate and coach will ensure that your employees are on track to achieve their desired objectives and goals. Not to mention, regular check-ins improve employee engagement.
Retention is a massive problem in today’s workforce, so checking in on work performance as well as simply showing that you care will go a long way in preventing turnover.
Real-time and time-sensitive feedback is vital to any successful performance-based initiative. Without the proper tools, performance management can be incredibly time-consuming, distracting, and ineffective.
Performance management software with a partner like PeopleGuru, can make real-time feedback easy to provide. Immediate feedback and course correction will improve satisfaction for both parties and have a significant impact on performance.
