Using Performance Tracking to Improve Employee Engagement

Cheerful coworkers in office

Tracking your employee’s performance does more than just following their strengths and weaknesses. Performance tracking is a gateway into better employee engagement and management. To improve the way your employees are engaging with your company, take these ideas into consideration:

Deliver frequent feedback. Create a platform for concerns, questions and suggestions by reaching out to your employees on a regular basis. By opening the line of communication regularly, your awareness of your team’s strengths and weaknesses vastly increases and adjustments or recommendations can be made from that point. Not only will feedback help employees be more receptive to criticism, but it will also highlight the positive aspects of your company.

Create incentives. While already-engaged employees will continue to be engaged in their position, others may need a bit more momentum. To push unmotivated employees toward success, incentivize them with evaluations that pin-point habits leading to a prospective career path within the employee’s position.

Develop a Performance Management Strategy. Having a strategy in gets everyone on same page and working toward a specific goal. Develop a strategy that will define, deliver and measure your team’s accomplishments while treating all employees fairly. Create a career path for further employee development. Include your business’ goals in the strategy to ensure consistency and standardization.

Guarantee accountability. Accountability is the key to keeping employees engaged, on-task and productive. Keep everyone accountable by using a Performance Management system that will allow you to tailor your, however frequent, performance review questions to the types of information you need to collect.
