Why is performance important?

As a business owner, performance management is critical to making decisions related to training, career development, compensation, transfers, promotions, and termination. It allows you to set clear goals and expectations for each employee and provide feedback about their performance related to those goals.

Performance management is also valued by employees, as it can offer opportunities for them to grow within your organization and advance their career. Employers who don’t actively provide feedback and opportunities for training and advancement could risk losing quality talent or finding themselves in the crosshairs of a wrongful termination claim.

What makes for great performance?

Personal and professional development help ward off negative thoughts that prevent us from taking steps towards self-improvement.

We often sit back and wait for an annual performance review to identify areas we need to improve. Position yourself to be accountable, improve your skill set, and continually learn by setting personal benchmarks and reviewing them regularly. Learning leads to a better quality of life, boosts confidence and personal development, and influences our life in a positive way.
