Measuring Job Performance – What Supervisors Need to Know

All companies evaluate employees. But, too often this evaluation is done without evidence or data by relying on impressions, incomplete observations, or even hearsay. In fact, experts in employee evaluation and human resources will tell you that a job performance appraisal system is only as good as the data on which it is based. That’s why this training session focuses on the crucial supervisory skill of measuring job performance. Duration: 29 minutes.

Employee Engagement 101

When your employees are engaged and actively interested in their work, they’re more productive. They care about the quality of what they produce. They’re more likely to positively impact your organization — and they’re less likely to leave you in the lurch. Yet less than a third of employees are actively engaged in their job! So how do you make sure that your employees are involved and engaged? How do you make sure your employees aren’t just “showing up” — they’re stepping up?
