5 Ways to Keep Employees Focused

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

A focused employee equals an engaged employee, which means less chance of careless mistakes being made, higher levels of output and all-around better quality of work. If you want your teams to be productive, you need to make sure that they're focused, and not just around employee performance appraisal time!

Think about it, if you have an employee who's stepping away (either physically or mentally) from their work every ten minutes, maybe to head for the water cooler or kitchen to make a coffee, going to chat to a colleague, taking a smoking break, or even just looking out of the window and daydreaming, they're obviously not focused. The result of that is that their work will suffer, and they're also likely to have an effect on their colleagues, so you end up with an even less productive team.

Making sure you have a focused and productive team should start with a general evaluation of employee performance; sometimes an employee just isn't the right fit for a role. Once you're satisfied that your employees do have the willingness and ability to always put 100% into the task at hand, you can encourage more focus and therefore better performance.

5 Ways to Keep Employees Focused

1. Have a leadership team that's motivated and motivating - The first step to making sure all employees are focused on their role and on the organization's goals is to make sure the same can be said of the upper echelons. Great leaders know how to get the most out of their employees by providing motivation and support, which they're obviously not going to be able to give if they're not motivated themselves.

2. Provide regular feedback - Too many organizations leave the feedback process to the annual employee performance appraisal, giving their employees a good reason to lose focus. You need to be consistent with feedback that lets employees know exactly how well (or not, as the case may be) they're performing, and arms them with the knowledge they can use to make any necessary improvements.

3. Get employees involved in their own progression - An evaluation of employee performance always needs to have the employee's own input if it's to be successful in boosting focus. Setting goals, targets and objectives are of course necessary, and using the employee's own suggestions for them is great for morale and engagement. 

4. Show flexibility - While letting employees do whatever they want, whenever they want is likely to be a recipe for disaster. Organizations that show a bit of give and take to employees tend to see higher levels of focus and productivity. Flexible start and finish times and allowing time off at short notice are going to be appreciated among staff and keep them focused on what they're doing. 

5. Encourage accountability - If teams aren't held accountable for their successes and failures, you can understand a lack of focus. After all, what does it matter to them? Encouraging a culture of accountability is a successful method of improving focus and productivity.

5 Ways Transparent Feedback Makes for a Better Workplace

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Embracing transparency in feedback is essential if you want a secure and committed workforce. While transparency in respect of customers is popular among businesses, it can be easy to forget about being transparent to your employees. 

This is where transparent feedback comes in; feedback is a crucial part of managing employee performance, so you need to make sure that your feedback processes are as successful as they can possibly be.

If you're looking for an easy way to cultivate transparent feedback, consider using 360-degree feedback software as part of your employee performance management process. It's something that everyone gets involved in, so no one person feels either singled out or that they're the only one making their feelings known. 360-degree feedback means that it's not just top down feedback, managers are also getting feedback from their direct reports. It's a great way of making sure that strengths and weaknesses across the entire organization are examined.

8 Daily Ways to Motivate Employees

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Employee motivation is crucial to employee retention and highly productive employees, and as we've already talked about, people are motivated by different things. Depending on each individual's motivators, there are a number of obvious, and substantial, ways to motivate employees, such as pay rises, bonuses, promotions and perks, but don't forget the little things that can be done every day to boost motivation levels in your employees. 

You might just find that encouraging this type of culture in your organization actually makes your entire employee performance management system run so much more smoothly, with employees happy and motivated to really get involved.

Encouraging Continuous Professional Development in your Employees

Monday, June 15, 2015

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is something that isn't just for your employees' benefit. A strong culture of CPD also offers a great deal to employers, so make it your responsibility to encourage it in your organization. While you're going through the process of evaluating employee performance, consider how you can use CPD to improve their motivation and success.

Benefits of Continuous Professional Development for Employers

CPD is your employees' investment into their future, and for you it's an investment into their future within your organization. Think of the extra knowledge, abilities and skills that CPD gives employees, all excellent resources that will benefit the work they do for you. 


Using 360-Degree Feedback in Probationary Reviews

Friday, June 5, 2015

Using 360-degree feedback during regular appraisals and performance reviews as part of an overall employee performance management process is a common and successful method, but have you ever considered using it for new employees?

What's your organization's process for probationary periods? 

The length and procedure of probationary periods may differ from business to business, but they all boil down to the same thing - new employees are given a review period to prove that they're capable of the position, during which time the employer is able to let them go. Many organizations have a formal review with the employee's manager at the end of the probationary period, where for some it's simply a case of the manager signing off either yes or no.

BOOST Employee Performance with Constructive Feedback

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

The ability to give and receive honest, constructive feedback is one of the signs of a successful employer/employee relationship. Giving feedback is a crucial factor in managing employee performance, and just because your organization has a formal employee performance management system in place, it doesn't mean that informal discussions can't be had between official appraisals and meetings.
