The Impact of Clear Expectations

Walking the Labyrinth

I once worked for a company that conducted employee performance appraisals without communicating clear goals in advance. The company was drastically underperforming compared to its industry. Within three years after introducing specific goals for all employees, company profitability had improved by more than 300%. It really works! That’s because individual employee goals were linked to the mission and goals of the Company.

“People with clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period
of time than people without them could ever imagine.”

–Brian Tracy

The second most common missing performance appraisal element is training. Establishing measureable goals for employees is a skill that has to be learned. If your organization is anything like those I have encountered, then most of your supervisors, managers, or employees have never received formal training in this critical area.

To succeed in their jobs, all of your employees need to be properly equipped. Performance appraisal training is a great investment that will pay off.
