Setting goals enhances performance and productivity.

Performance and Productivity

A company's bottom line depends on productivity. If there are concerns about an employee’s performance and productivity, the employer should not hesitate to act.

Workplace Issue: The output of some employees is not meeting targets, and non-compliance is widespread.
If problems occur: Confirm that each employee understands his or her job.


The employer or supervisor should:


1. Ensure that the employee understands the job requirements. Specific goals and performance targets should be clear and documented.
Tip for success: Checklists and visual performance aids will facilitate the employee’s understanding of job targets.



2. Confirm that standards are clearly communicated to the employee. Company or department production targets should be clearly stated.
Tip for success: Visual aids for quality standards will increase performance awareness.


3. Determine whether accommodations are necessary. The employee's situation may have changed.
Tip for success: Ask the employee to determine whether his or her work conditions are adequate or whether a change in the work environment is causing hardship.


4. Review workers' training. All training should be documented and periodically reassessed to ensure skills maintenance.
Tip for success: A training matrix or training plans for each position will boosts workers’ motivation to increase their skills.
