Change the Way Managers and Employees Think About Performance Reviews
Without an online performance management system performance reviews are difficult to do, mainly because most of the work falls on the manager. This usually means you can only conduct a performance review annually, usually around the end of the year. All you can do in this review is look back at what has happened and try to recall why.
With Mariner7's on-line performance management tool you can turn this approach on its head! Because the tool enables employees to take ownership of their performance, they do most of the preparatory work in preparing goals and preparing for reviews and the manager approves it. Reviews can be done easily throughout the year, focusing on what has to be done in the next period to deliver the goals set at the beginning of the year, taking into account the changing business conditions.
The manager's role is to provide feedback, coaching and guidance. Managers are willing to invest quality time in their people because they realise that the more succesful their people are the more successful they are as a manager. The focus changes from looking back at what has happened to looking forward at what needs to be done. Employees take ownership of their performance and become proactive in getting the feedback and support they need to deliver the results they committed to.
