Performance Management – A New, Effective & Efficient Way To Do It

One of the most stressful times in the lives of leaders is judging and getting performance management right. It is inherently subjective and ridden with inaccuracies and biases. Moreover, the concept of continuous evaluation sounds exciting but it’s difficult to implement.

Here are some performance management stats for you:

  • Only 8% companies believe that their performance management process is highly effective in driving business value.
  • On the other hand, a mere 58% say it’s not an effective use of time.
  • 45% HR leaders do not think annual performance reviews are an accurate appraisal for employee’s work.
  • 69% employees say they would work harder if they felt their efforts were better recognised.
  • Companies that implement regular employee feedback have turnover rates that are 14.9% lower than for employees who receive no feedback.
  • 92% respondents agreed with the assertion, “Negative (redirecting) feedback, if delivered appropriately, is effective at improving performance.”
  • Managers who received feedback on their strengths showed 8.9% greater profitability.
  • 1 in 5 employees are not confident that their manager will provide regular, constructive feedback.
  • 43% highly engaged employees receive feedback at least once a week.

Now that we understand the consequence of having a broken performance evaluation process, let’s look at how we can make it stress-free and easy to implement. Can technology help?

Absolutely.

Platforms like peopleHum are designed to make the entire process more objective, effective, and efficient with the following modules-

Goals

When you set prior goals for your team then it becomes easier for everyone to align together. Otherwise, it becomes nothing less than chaotic and a heated discussion.

peopleHum provides a Goals module to set up goals at the organisation, team, and individual level. As a result, you can identify and assign goals, link them to the performance evaluation process, and measure their impact. Get a heat-map on which teams and individuals are achieving their goals and hitting the mark.

  3. Link goals and assign weights to each
  4. Create distributions for teams and individuals
  5. Schedule meetings with reminders
  6. Measure and trend performance over cycles
  7. See your best-performing teams and individuals at the click of a button
