For some employees in an SME, getting started with or contributing their own performance review can be a daunting task with a range of emotions coming to the fore.
From the work we do with clients in companies large and small, we know that simple email reminders at key stages of the review process, just aren't enough. People need greater involvement, empowerment and, quite frankly, more regular input.
Couple all this with the fact that, at different times of the performance calendar, employees and managers are asked to do different things. For example, they may be asked to set objectives, give feedback to someone on how they're doing, carry out an interim review, check-in on progress and so on.
Imagine if you could stick a sticky note on everyone's screen that encourages them to do the things you need them to do. Now, that would work!
This approach not only supports efforts to engage people with on-going appraisal conversations but means that all the feedback and updates are in one place so you can get an accurate overview.
And that’s exactly what we’ve done in our cloud-based performance management application of our Talent Management software.
To show you just how this looks, take a look at our Getting Started with Performance Management video.
In the video, you’ll be able to see how the sticky note appears on the screen of the employee and how you, as the Administrator of the system, control what appears. The analytics we put at your disposal will tell you if people are actually doing what you ask.
It’s just one example of how our software tools are designed to engage people and encourage a more continuous performance process, rather than simply capture data and fill in forms.
