Why Companies Can’t Get Rid of Performance Reviews

Why Companies Can’t Get Rid of Performance Reviews | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
Stuck in their ways, many employers still believe annual performance reviews provide the best mechanism to gauge employee engagement, chart progress, and surpass company goals.

Their logic is simple: reviews shine a light on where employees stand right now, and they help predict where workers may end up tomorrow. Feedback, naturally, is critical to employee development. Employees understand this perfectly, which is why a majority of them actually enjoy hearing negative feedback.

How else can workers expect to improve if no one is telling them what they’re doing wrong?

The role of HR has evolved significantly over the last few decades. Today, HR professionals have a lot of responsibilities, including recruiting, onboarding, and engagement, among other things. HR departments work to make sure their employees are given the support they need to reach their full potential.

Remote Control: How To Pick The Best Remote Employee

When looking for a remote employee, employers should begin by understanding how both the employee and the employer benefit from remote work. 

First, the employer may not have to expand real estate costs as quickly as they would if all employees were located in office. While not always entirely avoidable, this could save some much-needed company funds when they are needed most (like for that company Christmas party). 

Second, employees save money on commuting costs. Not only that, but it saves time on both ends. Driving clear across town (or even into a different state) is not always a pleasure for employees.

The 4 Key Benefits of Employee Engagement Surveys

The 4 Key Benefits of Employee Engagement Surveys | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
In today’s fast-paced, tech-driven world, it’s critical for businesses to do everything within their power to keep their employees engaged. Quite simply, engaged employees are happier, they’re more productive, and they’re less likely to look for a job at another organization.

Despite that notion, results from Deloitte’s 2015 Global Human Capital Trends survey found that:

87% of organizations say employee engagement is one of their top challenges.

3 things to stop doing to managers now

3 things to stop doing to managers now | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
People don’t leave companies, they leave managers. We’ve all heard it before, but I don’t think business leaders really believe it.

According to a recent Gallup study, 50% of employees leave jobs “to get away from their manager.” Ouch.

If you want engaged employees and a successful business, your managers can be your secret weapon. And since companies struggle to believe or implement all the literature out there of how to approach it – I’ll try something a little different. Something more reflective.

Is Your Job Killing You? How to Stay Healthy at Work

Is Your Job Killing You? How to Stay Healthy at Work | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Labour-intensive work, particularly if it is repetitive, is bound to take its toll on health. Certain occupations, such as police work or firefighting, take on a variety of elevated risks that are considered, “just part of the job.”

But professional work is hardly immune to potentially life-shortening work conditions. Indeed, the sedentary nature of desk work where little or no physical movement is required presents its own set of dangers.

Numerous studies point to the increased likelihood of some kind of pain resulting from sitting all day, not to mention a higher risk of heart disease. Nor is the standing desk the answer, as being on your feet all day is as much a cause of backaches and fatigue as sitting.

Time to say goodbye to the open plan era?

Time to say goodbye to the open plan era? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Durring the blitz, on 10 May 1941 the House of Commons Chamber was bombed. Arriving at the scene, the fire service was forced to choose between battling the blaze or fighting a second fire raging in medieval Westminster Hall.

 

They chose the latter.

By the following morning only a smoking shell remained and a new Commons Chamber was needed. In the ensuing debate over the building’s design, Churchill stood firm. He argued staunchly for the retention of the Chamber’s original rectangular shape, believing its adversarial design was responsible for the development of British democracy’s two-party system.

‘We shape our buildings,’ he said. He followed with: ‘afterwards our buildings shape us.’

How far should you invest in employee learning?

How far should you invest in employee learning? | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Matched learning, employee development, sponsored qualifications – whatever you may call it, offering an employee learning scheme brings the double advantage of upskilling the workforce while serving as an effective retention tool. Most workers highly value the opportunity to learn – even more so if work is offering to pay for said qualification.

At potentially thousands of pounds per employee, however, not to mention the man hours which are lost to classroom time or assignments, it’s not surprising if some businesses put up a little resistance when that request for learning is received. Yet educating staff benefits the economy and increases personal self-worth – plus it enhances your reputation as a Great Place to Work. Should you invest in educating your employees? If so, to what extent?
