Establish goals and performance objectives
Clearly outlined goals and objectives give an employee the necessary kick-start in an organization. Be it through charts, periodic emails, or frequent check-ins, organizations as a whole and managers in particular need to be crystal clear with employees when it comes to goals and objectives.
Timely performance feedback
Honest feedback recognizes achievement and highlights the areas that have a scope for improvement. Organizations need to frequently gauge work progress and provide honest feedback to employees. Real-time feedback, when integrated into company culture, helps employees align themselves with the organization’s goals.
Regular meetings to discuss outcomes
Progress meetings help assess how things are going with regard to the goals and objectives. Progress meetings can be weekly, monthly, or fortnightly, depending on how it suits the organization. However, it is essential that these meetings include recognition of achievement, devising a plan to deal with weak areas, and a discussion on future projects.
