Managing for Performance Strategies Highlighted in 4imprint White Paper
Promotional Products Vendor’s Blue Paper® Profiles 4 Steps for Performance Management
(OSHKOSH, Wis.)—Maximizing performance is a top priority for many organizations. Turns out performance management is not just good for the organization, but also beneficial to employees.
How can organizations establish an effective performance management program? Promotional products retailer 4imprint tackles that topic in Managing for Performance, a newly released Blue Paper®. The Blue Paper describes the performance management approach to setting expectations, monitoring performance, providing feedback and taking action as steps that help get results.
Though these steps may sound simple, organizations seeking to implement them may quickly realize that adopting a performance management strategy leads them to re-evaluate the organization’s job descriptions, leadership and management training, interactions with employees, project management, communications style and internal sharing of best practices.
In fact, a shift to performance management often requires training for both managers and employees because focus changes. Where employees may once have focused on outputs – like how many hours worked or amount of time spent with customers, they now are expected to focus on outcomes – like sales volume and customer satisfaction.
“This paper does a good job of outlining performance management, and highlights some of the keys to success and the role managers play in helping employees reach their targets.” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, President, 4imprint.
Managing for Performance is a complimentary Blue Paper (4imprint’s version of a white paper) and podcast available for download at http://info.4imprint.com/bluepapers/.
