Use of technology in employee performance management
In an organization, getting constant feedback on employee performance or satisfaction is not among current HR trends yet. The real-time performance management tools will offer employees and HRs more visibility into the team’s performance. Talent managers will be able to determine which employees struggle to contribute to the work and find ways to integrate them into the working environment more efficiently.
Objectives and KPIs
Software designed to manage and report on objectives and KPIs can benefit everybody in an organization, both individually and as a team. Here are the advantages:
Real-time visibility: Individuals using a performance evaluation app to measure metrics can receive information in real time, or as close to real time as the data is available. A remote project site employee, for example, can refer to their dashboard on the PC, or in a mobile app to check the progress of the day’s order fulfillment.
Transparency: We all want and expect some level of clarity in the workplace, and everyone benefits from open communication, clear expectations and feedback that doesn’t come out of left field. The inclusion of employee role specific dashboards within any application allows employees at all levels to self-manage against their goals, and gives leaders concrete, accessible data to reference in performance evaluations. It also allows managers to be proactive rather than reactionary — discussing what went wrong last week isn’t always useful, since it’s in the past, but discussing what’s going wrong today and how to course-correct is productive and actionable. And don’t forget about the ripple effect — workplace morale tends to be higher when employees are able to be proactive and involved rather than reactionary.
