In any organization, if we try to factor the parameters that lead to a “not so effective” employee performance management, you will hear points like:
1. Poorly structured strategy
2. Lack of Clarity – top down
3. Not adapting to changing circumstances
These are few of the parameters which usually gets discussed in the meeting room. However, what has been observed across organizations is that, there are quite a few tangible parameters which are not addressed to, causing the entire process of performance management to slip through the cracks. Some of these parameters are:
1. Not measuring progress
2. Lack of effective communication
3. Unable to adhere to timelines or milestones
4. Not able to hold the quarterly review sessions
5. Not empowering the team with the right tools to address the entire issue and drive the entire workflow
As an outcome, you see disappointed employees and disappointed employer as a spill over. The point is, you might have the strategy in place, you might have the clarity right from the top management to the junior most employee on board and every single individual is flexible enough to adapt to changes. However, what becomes a pre-requisite in today’s scenario is having the right tool backed by a solid technology that can help the HR managers and the employees.
