It should also have tracking capabilities for measuring employee sentiment and morale, as well as custom reporting.

    Some best practices that we trust for improving team engagement include: leading with transparency, recognizing employee contributions and accomplishments, and fostering collaboration.

  • What are the best ways to evaluate employee performance?

  • Why is performance management important for employee engagement?

    While many methods may help depending on the workplace environment, some helpful best practices for evaluating employee performance include maintaining accurate records of an individual employee's excellent or sub-par performance, attendance tracking, peer reviews, and diligent goal setting.

    Performance management can help with employee engagement by setting fair standards between an employee and employer, where the metrics for success are clear. Employees feel more empowered to do their best work when they have a strong idea of what's expected of them and the standards by which they'll be judged.
