In these days it is crucial to measure the performance of your employees. Many organisations invest a big deal in these performance management systems. Despite the investment, there seems to be a great variation in success in employee performance. Gallup investigated the effectiveness of performance management systems. And saw a strong relation between how the manager scored on these elements and the performance of employees. They asked employees to rate their manager on how much their manager:
helped employees feel empowered
recognized or praised employees’ achievements
cared about their employees
had regular discussions with employees
Organisations who had high Managers scores, also had a high performance score.
