Employee Performance Management Is Evolving
Establishing and Aligning Goals Is Imperative
It is common to find strategies and employee performance tasks that do not align with the KPIs of the organization. A proactive HR leader would examine these elements of the strategy to ensure they are matched. The next step would be to work with managers to establish milestones and analytics to gauge progress and achievement.
HR professionals who embrace technology and are equipped with the skills to embark on analytical thinking coupled with digital literacy and data analysis are the leaders of today. Those who are open-minded and ready and eager to learn these skills can improve their ability to think strategically and lead moving forward.
In the HR.com 2021 report, 90 percent of respondents say their organizations hold managers accountable for performance management in some way. There are several ways of doing this. The most obvious one is to track if they are doing it at all, but nearly half of organizations (45%) fail to take this basic step according to the report. One of the most fundamental, but not insignificant, benefits of performance management technology is that it makes it easier to track who has submitted performance appraisals and to remind managers who are late with their submissions. Using a business intelligence tool like analytics streamlines the performance evaluation process.
Analytics Is About Asking the Right Questions
- Would knowing who the lower performers are be useful to help develop training programs?
- Would knowing top performers help plan compensation considerations?
- Would knowing absenteeism rates offer insights into employee engagement?
- Would it be helpful to know about the lack of a specific skill set in the employee base? Or even a specific location?
- Would it be helpful to know the potential of an employee’s preponderance to leave the job based on certain factors, such as relationship with managers, compensation, and absence of a clear succession plan
- Would it be helpful to know how many managers are following the performance review plan?
Having the answers to these queries or any number of other questions specific to your organization can assist in making data-based intelligent decisions about employee development, engagement, recruitment, working environments, KPIs and more. All of which are significant to the productivity and productivity of the organization.
