Performance Management to Align Goals

When dealing with different skill sets across your organization, it’s important to have standardized evaluations to effectively manage employee performance. It’s critical for the success of your company to make sure employees in highly skilled positions have a firm grasp of their job and are delivering where you need them to.

Implementing a performance management system will also help you set goals for employees, giving them a clear path on where they are going with the company and what they are working toward. With this knowledge, they become engaged employees and start to take personal ownership in the company. In addition, it’s important they know the overall organizational goals. By clearly seeing how they are affecting these outcomes, they’ll have even more drive to reach their personal goals.

BirdDogHR also ensure that your system is easy to navigate. Otherwise you’d be losing valuable time and money as it wouldn’t be used by everyone to its full potential. We know what you need to enable everyone to set their sights on success. Let us show you how.

Learning Management & Employee Engagement

Whether you’re developing talent you already have or getting your new, highly skilled employees up to speed, it’s important to have an effective learning management system (LMS). This allows you to have all of your training materials, plans, assessments, resources and regulatory documents in one consolidated system. Not only is this a huge time saver, but it ensures that everyone is working off the most up-to-date content and learning in a standardized way.

An LMS also helps you manage your employees’ training and be sure they have the special skills needed to get this difficult job done well. In addition, you’ll be able to offer training opportunities for further development to help them sharpen and add to their skills. At the same time, you will be engaging your employees, as they see your willingness to invest in their career with the company. Once they are fully engaged, you are more likely to keep them and their highly specialized skills inside your walls.

Your system will enable you to update materials as needed or even create brand new content quickly. Have a safety concern on a new jobsite? Get the information out immediately to your entire workforce and be sure they are protected. Having this information also available via their mobile devices ensures you have their attention anytime, anywhere. Let us show you how we can make it happen.

Career Planning & Succession Management

Being proactive when it comes to succession planning is one of the most important things you can do to ensure sustained success at your company. When it comes to specialized talent, the best way to stay ahead of the curve is to develop from within. Engaging up and comers with the specialized skillset required in these roles should be a priority.

Having a succession planning process in place will help you identify those highly skilled individuals in your organization that you want taking over these critical roles. These employees are the kind that appreciate the time and attention you are willing to invest in them. They become motivated by seeing that career path for growth and development, and are eager to do what it takes to learn the job.

Doing all of this will ensure that, when those positions open up within your company, you won’t miss a beat by having a trained and reliable candidate ready to take over. Let us help you put these processes in place and start developing career paths for your most talented today.
