Learning and performance management – how are they interlinked?

Recognition is the key driver for an employee. It’s interesting to note that employees actually look forward to performance evaluations and actually prefer negative recognition to no recognition at all! When there is an evaluation system in place, employees feel that the organization is stable, progressive and value their contribution on a day to day basis. Organizations benefit from a systematic performance evaluation system too. They can accurately strategize their training and recruitment needs based on the data they receive from the performance management software. Further, organizations get a fair idea of their best employees who work at their full potential and those who need some kind of support.

While most organizations already have some kind of a performance management system in place, it’s time to think whether it actually aids in profitability. It’s time to re-evaluate you system!

You know when you need a change when:

  • You have hired expensive consultants to conduct employee evaluations
  • Your current software does not support the kind of process that you need to implement.

You’ll instantly know when you need to switch to a more flexible and scalable performance management system. The benefits are just too many:

  • Helps monitor employee performance – continuously.
  • Helps in the implementation of employee engagement, mentoring and fosters profitability – all in a single suite.
  • Helps identify those employees struggling – and also identifies the areas in which they need help.
  • Helps set employee goals and deliverables and evaluates them against these deliverables.
  • Finally, it helps gain an overall view of how each employee contributes to the greater goals of the organization.

How can selecting the right performance management software help?

Well, by selecting the right performance evaluation software, you can accurately analyze how each of your employees is fairing. You know the best ones you have – who can work with little or no supervision and you know who need some kind of support to get them going. Well, you also know the bad hires and you can take action before it impacts your entire project. A detailed view of your employee’s strengths and weaknesses can be just the right information you need to move from mediocre to one of the best organizations. Well, after all any organization is only as good as it’s employees.  Taking the right action at the right time can save you a lot in terms of wasted time as well as dollars. Employee performance evaluations are the only way you can take action – in time.

Above all, if you are considering a re-evaluation of your employee performance management software or if you are implementing it for the first time, you need to ensure that you have a process in place and select the software that will suit your requirements completely.
