Betterworks Provides for Constructive Feedback Conversations through Goals and Performance Tracking

Betterworks

The Betterworks Continuous Performance Management® solution is a template-based system for providing feedback to employees. It integrates with email and other communications systems in order to provide a continually updated exchange on performance between supervisors and employees. Conversation templates are designed to keep focus on a tracked and measured direction in employee performance with the intent of reaching a company goal. This keeps goals aligned to company objectives and helps keep feedback limited to attaining them, thereby helping eliminate subjective bias and allowing for practical conversations.

Keeping things practical is a functional part of providing an environment in which both parties are less intimidated and reluctant to engage in feedback conversations. Supervisors may be unprepared to deal with unexpected employee reactions, or they could benefit from a system for pairing company goals with specific feedback points. Employees may find feedback either critical or without actionable material or direction for improvement.

Surveys have found that close to half of employees get feedback not more than a couple of times a year, and even fewer considered the feedback to be actionable.

A study by Kimberly Schaufenbeul at UNC Executive Development found that motivation comes from clear explanation of the company’s goals and how an employee can have an impact in reaching them. This comes from frequent and engaged feedback, which allows for more understanding and which provides for creative and innovative efforts by informed employees.

The Betterworks: Continuous Performance Management® solution works on these fundamental ideas by determining company goals and consistently communicating them. Goal achievement is approach with regular goal and performance oriented conversations and conversation template support for managers. Betterment also coaches teams at all stages, and provides support with online community and resources and the with on-demand webinars for setting up a company’s feedback program.
