Better Engagement, Better Performance.
Engagement seems to be the topic of 2018 and while so many companies are struggling to figure out what they can do to get employees more engaged, they are still falling short of an answer. Instead of focusing on engagement, start shifting your focus and efforts to the overall employee experience. This includes culture, onboarding process, your current performance management system, technology and physical company environment.
Start evaluating all of those factors and find where your employees stand. Ask yourself these questions to help guide you:
Are they getting the right information consistently and in a timely manner to succeed in their current role and goals?
How is the current technology helping or holding back your employees from performing to the best of their abilities?
Are new hires getting a full experience when being onboarded or just a slideshow and rulebook?
Is the environment and culture inviting and welcoming? Especially to those new hires?
These are all questions you should be considering when evaluating your employee experience. Companies are taking it upon themselves to fuel a new outlook on employee experience to increase engagement and ultimately performance levels.
Learning and Development
We expect our employees to learn and develop their skills in their everyday job, but often we forget that actually putting in extra time and offering real learning opportunities for employees helps increase performance and engagement. A Gallup study shows that 87% of millennials want access to professional development and career growth opportunities. New talent looks for this and is one of the most important factors when selecting a job.
By providing more employee training and development opportunities, you are likely to see a good return rate in employee performance. Implementing a new and non-traditional learning opportunity in your management strategy will help your employees, your managers and your company brand.Break down the barriers of traditional #PerformanceManagement and watch out for these upcoming trends happening in 2019. @ClearCompany is helping you enhance your process and achieve success.

In order to maintain a healthy performance management strategy and continue to mold future leaders to run the business, companies need to start at the very beginning of their employee's career with the organization. Offer mentors who can help them build their network and skills.
Current employees can start immediately with extra learning and development training as mentioned earlier. Focus on building communication skills, understanding/pinpointing issues and strategic problem-solving. Forming and maintaining your leadership program helps you create those A-Teams and those who are apart of these teams are capable of evolving with continuous learning and development.
Out With the Old, In With the New Roles
Personalization in roles is becoming more popular with startups and rising companies — giving employees more leeway to use their skills in their role and continue to grow within the company.
Get rid of those old traditional roles and titles and establish a more creative approach to them. Identifying your employee’s strengths and interests, and combining different tasks that suit them to improve overall company performance, is becoming the ideal job that modern workers are seeking. Companies are adopting this new approach called “job crafting,” by transforming their current roles and building positions around their employee's strengths and interests. This can help shape a high level of performance and engagement from their current employees and spark interest from incoming talent.
