Human Resource and How Performance Management Help Create a Culture of Excellence
As a matter of fact, you must have at one time been to such organizational meetings where people get to make some promises of significance to the organization but at the end of it all, they never follow on these to see them actualized. Quite a number will still commit to a deadline of some kind knowing full well that they will not be able to meet them but they rest in the knowledge that no one will hold them accountable at the end of the dy.
A recent survey has actually established the need to get the right things done as the main problem that has been faced by a number of company leaders, up to 78% of them affirming this as one that affects them and their teams. Thanks to these, we have seen the fact that one of the ingredients that has been missing in a number of organizations yet so important is that of accountability.
These can be partly attributed to the fact of the fast paced nature of the business environment as it is today. By and large, there is so much demanding our attention and time and as a result of this, we happen to be unable to keep with the pressures of each day much less get done much of the things that we may have committed to.
In as much as these explain the lack of accountability, there is the other element of a lack of a performance management system which as well explains the reasons behind the inefficiencies you may be facing in your workplace. By and large, where such a system isn’t in place, one that will be as clearly aligned to the organizational goals and objectives, it can be quite a challenge if not totally impossible for you to engage your team members to follow through on the right things and have them done in a timely manner.
One thing that we see in all this is the fact that with a structured performance evaluation and management system and process, you will have such a system that will be of a lot of support to your ongoing efforts to build a sense of accountability in your organization, from the individual team members to the departments and all through to help you have this as an organizational culture at the end of the day. Actually, the performance management systems do help with the need to have all members in your team be aligned to your organizational goals and objectives, the key and strategic goals and objectives and added to this, they get to focus their attention on what things need to be done and giving the deadlines for the same. The performance management systems as well are essential for management as with them, they as well can keep track of what is important to rally behind.
