Employee performance is much more than just whether an employee completes daily workplace projects and activities. Based on a set of operational competencies drawn up by the organisation, performance is also assessed on employee workplace behavior, and how they undertake their projects and activities when compared to the required capabilities.
Performance management is not about hounding employees, but about helping committed and competent employees develop their skills with a view to increasing workplace responsibility and ultimately, productivity.
Assuming these workplace standards and competencies are drawn up in an unbiased, fair, accurate, and honest manner, assessments and decisions regarding an employee’s performance can be accurately analysed. From their first day, employees should be made aware of what is expected of them, and that their performance will be monitored. With this knowledge, employees can self-motivate based on assessments, while management can help mentor and motivate staff.
Using software with occupation specific parameters allows management to assess particular areas of performance while analyzing such things as workplace productivity, return on investment, the possibility of bonuses, pay rises, or termination.
Maximizing productivity with performance management software
Performance management platforms are designed to help improve company productivity by helping employees, teams, and managers work toward common goals as part of an ongoing organisations strategy. In many businesses, employee performance reviews are squeezed into an hour at the end of one year, or the beginning of a new one. In most instances, the reviews concentrate on the previous year’s performance. Making no real effort to improve things in the coming year, performance, behaviors and productivity continue at the same level, with the same end-of-year results.
Using management software, performances can be monitored, and changes made, in real-time. On this basis, employee-to-employee, and employee-to-management discussions can be held, assessments made, and changes in working practices instigated to streamline and refocus goals and behavior on an on-going basis.
A good performance management suite will allow you to successfully monitor the main factors of your company’s performance management, at both employee and management levels. Not restricted to monitoring, we will help develop strategies which ensure management teams can also move from observing, to changing practices - leading to better alignment and performance.
We also offer a range of specialist seminars to help translate results, improve workplace co-operation, and expand and grow a better workplace performance culture.
