“Feedback is the breakfast of champions.” It’s pretty spot-on, as without a regular serving of feedback your organisation and employees are likely to starve of productivity and innovation.Sadly, many higher level managers have little or no idea of what is going on a few rungs down the organisational ladder: the progress of ongoing projects, team engagement and happiness in general is lost to them. This is a major oversight. Continuous feedback leads to continuous improvement, both on an individual and global level. It’s key if we want to encourage productivity and breed creativity and innovation amongst employees.
While it may seem like an added responsibility for line managers, it actually makes their job easier in the long run. The ongoing evaluation of teams and individuals helps to improve the skills of the employee, establish better goals and measure key team metrics, which can be used to give more accurate feedback during performance appraisals and annual engagement surveys. What’s more feedback, whether positive or negative is always better delivered in the moment.
Ongoing evaluation of teams and individuals helps to improve the skills of the employee, establish better goals and measure key team metrics. Essentially, today’s forward-thinking organisations no longer believe that the employee appraisal is wholly about the performance of the individual. Networked organisations understand that feedback and appraisals are a two-way street in which both team player and organisation must make an equal effort to achieve great results."
