Keeping track of your employees is not always easy, but monitoring performance can be a good way to determine how your employees are meeting the goals that you have set. You might think that performance measurements are designed to be simple, but this is not always the case. What you need is a way to simplify the performance evaluation measurements so that it is easier to clearly see how performance of each employee ranks. Here are the key takeaways from this infographic.
1) Simplicity Counts
The thing that you need to remember above all else when it comes to performance data is that you want to keep things simple. This means that you do not want to be using complex measurements that are difficult to read. You want the measurements that you use to be as basic as possible so that you are able to evaluate performance most effectively and to get the most use out of the data that you have obtained. You want employees to be bale to find the data that they are looking for quickly and easily. This is only possible if you always remember to keep things simple. Traffic light updates are one of the best ways to make sure that the data is not bogged down in any way and that employees can find exactly what they are looking for.
Another easy way to make performance evaluations so much easier to read is to have some type of leader board. This allows employees to clearly see where thy rank with ease and it does not take a lot of time or effort to come to this determination. A leader board is something that you must have with your performance evaluation data if you want it to be understood and actually helpful to your staff. Now employees will have the ability to clearly see where they rank and how they stack up against the rest of the staff.
3) Overachieving Goals
It is also important for the performance data that you share to highlight not only those that are meeting the specified goals, but also show the link for the overachieving metrics. This means that you need to clearly show the measurements for those that are going above and beyond what is expected. This is a link that needs to be shown in the data so that employees can see the connection and can see where they need to most work.
