1. Goal setting: How do you set goals for your employees to measure growth of your business?

The first and foremost step to achieve success in any business is setting a benchmark to measure the growth. This benchmark helps a company to identify and set goals. Have you ever wondered what are the goals that can be set as a benchmark to measure employee performance? Is it possible to measure performance goals using a cloud-based software?

The answer to the question is “YES.” Using a cloud-based performance management software, HR can easily decide and define the goals to measure the performance of an individual employee. It is a standard method to evaluate performance as system driven analysis leads to an error-free result. An individual department can easily identify their goals and perform accordingly.

2. KRA and KPI – Are your employees having their pre-defined goals from the starting of a month?

After setting and identifying the goals for your business, you need to identify the areas and measure the development of individual department in a company. After identifying the goals and having pre-defined areas to measure the performance of a department, the evaluation of individual employee must be carried out and that too on a regular time of interval. Say, for example, the area in which developers need to work is developing a software or an application. But the roles they need to play is developing correct code and solve bugs in it.

It is done through KPI, which means Key Performance Indicators. Employees must have a predefined set of goals starting from the month that makes their work easy. It helps HR to measure the performance of an employee easily. In short, it fills all the loopholes that arise regarding the performance of the department as well as an individual.

3. Performance measurement and feedback: Can your employees rely on the measurement made through the performance management software?

In the above example, the role of programmers was identified. The next step is measuring the performance of employees and giving feedback on it. Earlier, it was done manually that is senior provides feedback for juniors. It may also lead to a biased result. This can be avoided using employee performance management software.

A motivated and skilled employee is an asset that will definitely bring a good fortune to you and progress of your company. As performance is measured from KPI, the decision is bias-free. It is measured on an individual basis, not according to a department. As the measurement is made on the cloud-based performance management software [PMS], employees can easily rely on it. At the time of appraisal, HR can quickly review the monthly work carried out by an employee. Thus, through a good PMS, employees feel motivated which in turn increases the productivity of a company.

4. Training: Are your employees trained according to their performance?

Filling the loopholes of your employees leads to better performance. Measuring or identifying the employees performance does not fill the loopholes in the department. In order to improve the performance, a proper training should be arranged.

After having a clear analysis, training should be given to your employees to fulfill their goals efficiently and faster. Training given to a department helps in the growth of a company as employees can stay with the latest technology. Their knowledge gets regularly updated that increases their performance. The salary is calculated according to the performance, and so the employee satisfaction can be achieved easily. Satisfied employees lead to work better which in turn helps in company growth.
