Performance reviews are undeniably an essential part for the smooth functioning of every organisation. But in most cases, the process stops there. As managers, are we helping employees stay motivated and use their talents to the fullest? Or in other words, are we able to manage employee performance?

Reviewing alone doesn’t help the employees improve themselves. So here’s what you can do to improve your employee performance after reviewing them in the current scenario.

Address performance issues:

One of the most important aspects of an annual performance review is to address the performance issues of your employees. Although these issues are followed up and talked about on a regular basis, you need to emphasise on these issues during the review.

How Engagedly Can Help:

Engagedly’s Cascading Goals feature helps you keep track of employee performance and rate them. This can serve as a record, basis which you can discuss the performance issues of your employees.

Know more about the feature here – Cascading Goals & Objectives.

Acknowledge their contribution:

Rewarding the accomplishments of your employees and supporting them is also as important as talking about the areas they need to improve themselves. Motivate them by giving them positive feedback and tell them how valuable they are for the organization. Rewards need not always be monetary; you can send a group email to all your employees addressing their contribution to the company’s growth.

How Engagedly Can Help:

Engagedly’s Feedback feature lets you praise employees for their achievements on your organization’s social feed. This helps in keeping your employees motivated more productive.

Take goal-setting seriously:

Every manager expects employees to deliver their best, but they forget to define clear goals for them. Employees work a lot better when they’re given a proper direction. So it’s important to set clear goals that you can keep track of and see if they’re meeting your expectations.

How Can Engagedly Help:

Engagedly’s Cascading Goals feature allows you to set goals for your direct reports and keep track of their performance.

Appreciate Innovation

Allow your employees to experiment and learn. Let them be creative, this helps them re-invent themselves and their work constantly. Encourage new ideas from your employees and make them realize why creativity is important.

How Can Engagedly Help:

The social feature in Engagedly allows the users to share knowledge and new ideas with the organization. You can also take an initiative through Engagedly and approve employee ideas through it.

Don’t defer feedback:

Don’t wait until the annual performance reviews to share feedback with your employees. Give them immediate feedback so that they can correct and improve themselves on a frequent basis.

How Can Engagedly Help:

Engagedly’s Feedback feature allows you to give feedback time to time and you can keep record of all the feedback you received and shared.
