Establish performance reviews that actually work
Once you have the right people in the right place, you may want to review their contribution. Having a method of reviewing employees which is meaningful and appropriate for your values, means both you and they benefit from this process.
If there’s one rule of thumb we’ve always applied over the decades, it’s that no two organisations need the same performance review method. Culture, types of role and what the organisation wants from it will influence how the review process works.
Some want to assess performance, some want to assess potential, some want to use it as a development tool and some want it for all the above and more. We’ve seen every scenario under the sun and can advise you on the pros and cons of each when it comes to designing yours.
How we can help
We usually hold a workshop to make sure we ask you the right questions to create a process that is the best fit for your business.
- Areas we look at might include
- Giving employees feedback
- Getting the most out of your employees’ comments
- Having a quality conversation
- Reviewing any supporting documentation.
If you’d like, we’ll even help you launch your review process to your employees. We’ll introduce it, explain your reasoning, get their buy-in and answer any questions they might have. Whether in person or via well-drafted communications, we’ll fit in with you.
We’re thorough and we put you through your paces. But there’s no point doing something so important in a half-baked way. Your employees will thank you for it and so will your bottom line.
