An industry-wide survey of people managers found that talent management within enterprise businesses is in serious need of improvement. Survey results indicate that frontline managers are not satisfied with their organization’s talent management and workforce performance improvement methods. The managers also indicated that they do not feel fully supported and that their talent management practices are less helpful and more of a hindrance to the organization.
Betterworks, a Continuous Performance Management® software solution, created the survey and reported its findings. The Betterworks survey uncovered an alarming lack of alignment in these large enterprise organizations. Only one-third of the managers surveyed were confident that all their employees understood the company’s mission and vision, and 62% admitted their organization does not clearly communicate what each employee is accountable for. A similar number of managers admitted to not having a clear understanding of top company priorities for the next 12 months.
The survey also indicated that managers are unable to use their current performance processes to coach their employees or communicate key objectives and set goals. Instead, managers find the performance programs outdated.
Doug Dennerline, CEO and Executive Chairman of the Board at Betterworks, says that people managers can make or break a company’s performance. He feels that it is important that HR provides managers with the necessary training and equipment for effective performance management.
Betterworks provides integrated software solutions that replace outdated review processes. Betterworks’ Continuous Performance Management® programs help managers inspire their workforce and motivate employees to meet organizational goals and challenges.
