As an employee, you understandably want to receive regular and constructive feedback from your managers. Their feedback provides you with specific information about your deficiencies so that you can focus your efforts effectively going forward. As a manager, you are tasked with the responsibility of providing feedback to your own employees. Are you providing the detailed and constructive feedback that your employees need and that you would like to receive from your own supervisors?
According to a recent Gallup survey, there is a good chance that you may need to improve in this area. Only 19 percent of young adult workers surveyed stated that they received regular feedback in the workplace, and only 17 percent of these individuals viewed that feedback as helpful or meaningful. Given the fact that performance reviews require improvement in many areas, this concern should be a focal point for you. Betterworks provides a Continuous Performance Management® solution that can enhance your efforts and benefit your employees at the same time.
Your employees generally will not have the information that they need for professional development if feedback is pointedly positive or negative. Instead, your comments should have a coaching edge that promotes career progression. Coaching should be provided regularly for the best results, rather than at annual reviews alone.
Betterworks helps you establish a feedback culture so that you and other managers can regularly coach employees without micromanaging them. At the same time, it provides your employees with an environment where they feel valued and supported. Betterworks also provides analytical tools to help managers be more effective in their positions. If you have not yet explored the features and capabilities of Betterworks, now is a great time to do so.
