Annual performance reviews can be time-consuming and may not produce the desired outcomes. Also, the results obtained from annual reviews are often biased and don’t accurately reflect workforce contributions. Continuous feedback has become a major trend in performance management. It helps businesses transform how they manage their valuable resources: employees.
For the workforce, feedback is more effective when it is given immediately. It brings more timely behavior change and keeps the workforce focused on the most important goals. Moreover, as the feedback can be taken from every individual the outcomes are more fair and unbiased.
Regular check-ins help you encourage mentoring and training.With more accurate and timely data you can better find and develop high performing talent, and also manage low performers more effectively.
Continuous feedback in performance management creates open communication and ensures problems are addressed quickly. With a skills shortage on the rise, this type of feedback can allow businesses to be more agile and adaptable. Also, the workforce will have greater incentive to remain productive and engaged when their performance is an ongoing conversation.
The workforce deserves more than one-and-done feedback, and businesses shouldn’t miss the opportunity to retain and motivate their employees. Organizations must implement the latest HR management systems that can offer what employees want – real-time feedback in the context of their work. Businesses that practice giving and receiving feedback from all directions – peer to peer or between managers and employees – can create more opportunities for the workforce to lean in on feedback to improve.
The HR solution offers a single dashboard to easily review, search, and filter all feedback the employees have provided. It allows every individual to provide or request feedback for themselves or someone in their team. You can link feedback to competencies and goals in an integrated system, so you can offer this feedback through regular check-ins.
The HR system with robust performance management feature allows your workforce to easily request and provide feedback, which can then be made available when conducting an annual performance review, if you still choose to.
Continuous feedback is a good source of encouragement and goal-setting that helps employees take control of their careers and increases their job satisfaction. It also helps employers improve their overall performance, manage workforce more economically, and develop talent more effectively.
