Whether you work in an organization which is globally dispersed and encourage flexible working hours, or you work in an office that adhere to strict working hours, communication is a key. The ability to communicate and give real time feedback on their performance allows employees to feel valued and help them stay motivated.

Understanding a 360 Degree Performance Evaluation

A 360 Degree Performance Evaluation helps company to see the bigger picture as to how well your team members are performing and meeting their timelines and objectives. The performance evaluation also provides great insight into the company as what’s going well and what requires improvement.

It can also be used to enhance compensation planning, identify the need for more training programs, and connect performance with corporate objectives. If you’re already using PMS, you may know it’s a great tool to evaluate continuous feedback all year round. This means when appraisal time comes, you can gain a collective feedback from peers as well as how the employee has performed and track the  assigned and accomplished tasks throughout the year, rather than speculating on individual performance metrics.

What options do you have?

There has been an ongoing debate regarding  bi-annual, monthly, quarterly and annual appraisals, and whether these are the best to evaluate the performance of your employees. However, these tools have been good enough to provide continual feedback as who are the top performers within the organization.

Further, simple record keeping helps managers to keep a continuous tab of a performance history for the entire tenure of each employee – indicating a graph with the opportunity to look deeply at the trends, patterns, or one-off blips. It also helps you to boost employee morale, increase productivity and retain your top employees. From defining KRAs to goal setting, review ratings and appraisals, everything is clearly defined and set in the system. Your team can input self-ratings and share with respective managers through the system itself.

We have learnt that it’s important for organizations to access data quickly and easily related to the performance of an employee. Using a performance management tool mean the manager can count on the module to monitor performance and rest assured that they can easily cull out reports and export when required.

How do you manage your talent, and what methods do you use to manage talent and their yearly, monthly and quarterly goals? As you start researching HRM systems for the business, why not get in touch with us for your comprehensive Performance Management Software needs.

Selecting a good performance management system itself is a challenge. How you should start looking for an automated or digitized version for your performance management process? Following are some tips that you can consider prior to opting for a performance management system.

Involve all stakeholders to gather requirements

It is very important for you to define and document what all you are looking from a new performance management system after digitization and automation. And, to achieve this goal you should include all stakeholders involved in the process, like workers, bosses, customers, etc. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the current system and what are they expecting from the new system.

After gathering all the requirements, you should design your own performance management system. It is important because when you buy software without having any knowledge about the requirements, you are definitely going to set yourself up for failure.

Human resource data and analytics

Being a central process, the performance management process consists of abundance of data about each and every employee. This data is generated at frequent intervals that can be daily, monthly or yearly. The prospective solutions should help you to not only record this data but analyze it in an effective and efficient manner.

There are other factors also to be considered, such as capabilities of adding additional data sources from any third-party application. It should be compatible as well as easily integrated with these applications (like hiring process).

Intuitive and user-friendly system

It is very critical to understand that whether the provided solution is providing a greater experience to the prospective users.

You should involve as many stakeholders as possible to understand user experience requirements at the time of defining the solution. Involving them since beginning so that it can release pressure when the system is ready for usage can be very beneficial.

The most crucial part is to study how the performance management system is going to seamlessly interact with other existing as well as prospective systems.

Challenges you might face at the time of selecting the tool

After going through the above-mentioned points, you must have understood that there is a significant amount of work to be done internally before you digitize any process in general and in particular.

There are a lot of products (on premise HRMS software as well as cloud based HRMS software) in the market and selecting a right one is crucial to your success. To make a right choice, you should ask the following questions to yourselves.

  • What is the basic necessity to the buy software?
  • How the new solution can help me in bridging up the gap between my current and new system?
  • Which solution is best suited for my business and organization size?
  • Whether the new solution is seamlessly appropriate for my current process? Or, if there is any need to update my processes to meet the requirement?

Conclusion

You should try to evaluate the various Web-based HRMS as well as cloud-based HRMS software that are available in the market based on your company process and culture. Selecting a vendor (local or global) is also one of the factors that you should keep in mind prior to buying software.

Talented business leaders or HR personnel will always clearly state their expectations from the new system, evaluate the available solutions as per their requirements, and then select a tool matching all the points described in their checklist to be successful in the market.

Employee – “I need to take a leave tomorrow for some personal work. But prior to this, I need to inform my manager for that. I will inform him in the evening after finishing my today’s work. And in the evening… oh I forgot to inform my manager or even write an email to him… this is really tedious job to inform him personally every time I need any leave for myself.”

Manager – “I need to approve so many leave requests that are waiting in my mailbox. And, I need to keep track of it who all are going for the leave. Oh God, what if there is some system that can help me in tracking all this information, which I can get glimpse of at end of my business day? “

Performance management (PM) includes activities which ensure that goals are consistently being met in an effective and efficient manner. According to the Wikipedia, “Performance management can focus on the performance of an organization, a department, employee, or even the processes to build a product or service, as well as many other areas.”

A performance management system has 3 key pillars:

  1. Goals – that an organization sets for itself and cascades it down to department and individual levels
  2. Employees – those who perform to meet those goals
  3. Rewards and recognition – tools to motivate employees towards meeting the goals

Performance Management Systems are used to measure employee / department performance towards obtaining those goals resulting in rewards and recognition.

The way goals are usually set, when an employee or a department attains them, fresh goals are set, or scales are revised. A natural conclusion is that over a period of time, as they keep attaining goals, the organization will grow, scale and prosper. Therefore, it becomes imperative to know if the Performance Management System in place is effective in helping improve performance.

The efficiency can be measured in several ways.

  1. Analyze the organization’s growth trend and correlate it to the goals set.
  2. Conduct surveys of employees about the Performance Management System and analyze the feedback to see if employees are able to effectively use the system to track and report their progress.
  3. Evaluate if the Performance Management System is effective in identifying areas of improvement. If no areas of improvement are being identified, chances are that the system is unable help identify them.
  4. Are the rewards and recognition programs being utilized effectively? If the ground report (as a result of the surveys) indicates that employees don’t feel that they are being rewarded or recognized sufficiently, the Performance Management System may need to be reconfigured or else employee morale may sag.

Analytical tools play a great role for any management to slice and dice the data to measure such aspects. However, a Performance Management System itself must allow for such data to be available so that it can be analyzed.

Conclusion

Performance Management Systems are an important tool for organizations to thrive. If these systems are at fault for stifling growth, it may be too late before it comes to notice. Therefore, using techniques such as mentioned above, organizations should periodically check the efficiency of these systems.

Performance management is a very tricky space as it directly has a direct impact on an employee. At times, it becomes very challenging to set, measure and review performance in a clear, simple way.

In our year end survey, 60% of the HR managers listed Performance Management as a key challenge that they faced in 2015. While, almost a same number enlisted recruitment as a key challenge too, most agreed that Performance Management was a tough task as it had huge emotional impact on employees too.

Are you doing performance management right

Performance Management as a practice, is a complex. It has multiple connotations, too many stakeholders, and at times, in tangible KPIs. This is one area where things cannot be marked as black and white always. Here are some steps that you could consider to make this process a little less complex, a little less challenging:

    1. Automate the process: This is a big change which most organizations are adapting now. Look for a suitable human resource management system which has a robust performance management module. Go for a system that is simple to use for all employees and gives instant reports.
    1. KPIs and Goals: Set the KPIs and goals clearly. The best approach is to explain stuff and set expectations in a meeting. Once goals are defined, all KPIs should be transferred to the performance management system.
    1. Plan short term. Along with long term, year-end goals, define shorter goals for employees too. Something which they can also track month on month. Let the system generate a month end report indicating progress and lack areas.
    1. Frequent reviews: Don’t leave the reviews for the last minute. Give feedback frequently so that the employee knows what is expected from him and works accordingly. Set your performance management system in such a way that it gives auto alerts to employees when they are short or their goals or are about to achieve them.
    1. Keep them informed. Share all reports with the team members clearly. Since the data is shared through a performance management system, there is complete transparency and the employee would also know what he has missed or gained. This would help in avoiding any last minute surprises.
    1. Monitor. Monitor. Monitor. Last but not the least, stay on top of the system. Make sure that all employees, and management, follows the process and shares information through the system. This is the only way to build a transparent performance management process that doesn’t hurt!

Many heads in the payroll department would nod vigorously when asked if there are any employee habits that make life a little more difficult for them. The HR department is responsible for identifying and bringing in talent to fill up the office space and realize the company’s goals. Retaining the employees wouldn’t be possible if payroll took a backseat. As the HR team puts in every effort for ensuring that payroll processes run smoothly, they shed light on some payroll habits of employees that really annoy them. These habits affect the performance of even the best HRM softwares in India. How you ask? Let’s see.

The Frowned-Upon Habits

The payroll team sees red when they come across these habits:

–          Untimely submission of attendance sheets

The web based HRMS software can be integrated with third party peripheral equipment such as fingerprint scanners, RFID chips or barcode scanners to mark your attendance. Half the work is done for employees when their attendance is tracked with such ease. However, payroll can access this information and process salaries only when these attendance sheets are submitted. There are some employees who get lazy or forgetful and delay sending the sheets till the very last minute. If the submission is untimely, there is nothing much the HR team can do and they still hear complaints with no fault of theirs. No wonder they get annoyed!

–          Requesting salaries before scheduled date

Yes there is a specific date when salaries are credited every month. Yes the employees are aware of it. However, that doesn’t stop some from trying their luck and requesting their salaries earlier than the scheduled date. The payroll team may understand that you have an emergency and that you urgently need the money but unfortunately HRMS doesn’t comprehend that. The entire payroll system cannot be compromised due to a personal emergency or because you are broke. At the same time, making an exception for just once could land the company in trouble because the payroll and taxation aspects are inter-connected. Early payment could cause some discrepancy leading to monetary troubles for the company.

–          Not informing the payroll department about a closed bank account

Your bank details are linked with the HRMS solution. As long as the details are accurate, salaries would be credited on time without any issues. But if you decide to close that account and open a new, do it by all means but remember to inform the payroll team on time. Once the salary gets credited into the closed account it would take some time for the banks to return the money. In the meantime, even the company cannot re-issue that money. It’s a stressful time for everyone and it’s easy to see why it’s an annoying habit. Open as many new accounts as you want but inform the payroll department of the change.

–          Submitting incorrect tax forms

Tax is one aspect which you cannot take lightly. Submitting inaccurate and sloppy tax forms will force payroll to put in extra hours. Every web based HRMS software rolls out payroll based on the information it receives. If you give incorrect information you can’t blame the software or the payroll department once you face taxation issues.

–          Incorrect paid-leave information or late approval of reimbursements, paid leaves etc.

You may have had a wonderful week long vacation that emptied a significant portion of your bank account. You eagerly wait for your salary to be credited only to realize that your paid leaves haven’t been accounted for. If you haven’t filled them out, then payroll team cannot do anything. It’s the manager’s fault if they forget to approve paid/sick leaves and reimbursements on time. In either case the best HRM softwares in India cannot resolve the issues, annoying the HR department once again since they are approached to deal with them.

Payroll is complex enough for the HR team to wish for magic elves to work for them. Since they are left to manage everything on their own, it would be kind of the employees to avoid these annoying habits to make their life a little easier. If you are guilty of having some of them, make an effort to shrug them off. Your payroll team may not credit extra money but they will thank you silently. Sometimes, that is good enough.

They say that if you have lost everything but your health, you can always start over and achieve whatever you want. This statement holds true cent percent which is why this aspect is given prime importance even by the business organizations. Healthcare is one of the basic benefits that every company is offering its employees. After all, every company wants to have a workforce that is healthy and fit. Probably there are employees who secretly wish to get sick every once in a while just to take a break from work. You as a company can step in and ruin those plans by shortening their hospital trips with your healthcare plans. Therefore, many companies are stepping into the healthcare realm themselves and ensuring that they are by their employees’ side if and when they face health issues.

Managing healthcare on an organizational level can be quite daunting, especially if the size of the organization is big. There are numerous policies and healthcare plans that need to be monitored and tracked. Different employees may need different plans and policies. The healthcare benefits need to keep in mind the labor law as well. There is one solution that may help you in automating this process. Yes, you guessed it right, it is HR-One’s HRMS. If you are wondering how in the world the best HR payroll management software solutions manages to tackle the healthcare issues as well, then read on.

Challenges of Healthcare That are Addressed by HRMS

Heavy hospital bills can drive away your employees from seeking the best treatment. You can help them out by devising smart healthcare policies so that they can seek the best healthcare services. While doing so, you might come across some of the following challenges. Let us see how HRMS can step in to save the day.

Challenge 1: Healthcare is a very complex arena which gets reflected while devising suitable plans for the employees

While most companies decide on a fixed amount of health insurance for each employee, there are some who go a step further to make it personalized for different categories of employees. Based on the age group, the company may decide on a different healthcare plan for the twenties who are single and minus any dependant family members for health insurance. Then there are employees who have families and have a kids and a spouse dependent on them for healthcare. The senior employees may need a plan that cover the illnesses that they are most prone to once they cross a particular age. Just imagine how complex it can get just to devise these policies, let alone manage them! HRMS automates the process and thus monitoring these plans get much simpler, faster and easier. One can track who opted for which plan and how many people are using a particular healthcare plan. It will be easier for HRMS to switch the plans as the employees grow within the company too. HRMS significantly simplifies this complex process.

Challenge 2: Maintaining Compliance with the healthcare regulations

There are rules and regulations that need to be complied with in the healthcare field. If these regulations are not taken seriously, companies have to pay heavy penalties. Companies should avoid legal hassles and any potential issues that may arise due to lack of compliance. HRMS keeps the healthcare system up to date and notifies every time there is an update in compliance. It creates and sends necessary reports and these timely updates ease the administration’s work.

Challenge 3: Hiring staff that are well versed with this aspect

Healthcare is something that needs people who know everything about this sector. You cannot make healthcare plans for your employees with people who are clueless about the same. So hiring them seems the most logical option. However, HRMS negates this necessity. You can source the suitable HRMS package from the vendor instead of increasing your staff unnecessarily.

HR-One offers one of the best HR payroll management software solutions in addition to the healthcare services. The employees can enjoy easy and clear communication too. They can put forward their queries through the FAQs tab, forums and other digital channels of the company. So now that you have one more reason to adopt HRMS into your organization, it would be wise if you do it fast!

Remember a time when the candidates looked just for the salary package and a handful of benefits that they could enjoy when applying for a job. Though these remain the focal points of many even today, but there are other factors that have managed to sneak into the priority list of the candidates. The workforce these days has a majority of millennials, who approach a job in a very different manner as compared to the preceding counterparts.

Adapting to Change

The millennials dare to dream big and are willing to do whatever it takes to increase their goals. At the same time, they believe in partying hard too. After all, they are not shy of taking out the green bundles and spend freely. They definitely do not want to emulate Uncle Scrooge by piling up the money and taking a dip in it once in a while. Along with their aspirations, their styles of working have also changed drastically. Being confined to their cubicle does not seem like a good idea to follow when one is trying to rule the world. So, they have gone mobile.

Traversing through cities or continents, working from home when they have too, putting in non-office hours from work and being plugged into work even when on the road seem like a norm now. This is exactly why the companies have to accommodate these changes so that their employees can be productive at all times. While the flexibility and mobility offered by the business world proves to be a blessing for the employees, it can come across as a nightmare for all managers and HR personnel.

However, managing mobile talent is now possible, thanks to software solutions such as HR-One HRMS.  The managers can track all the work done by those employees who are mostly on the road or those who prefer to work to home for a most part of the month. Handling all the functions that are critical time-wise and allowing the employees to embrace mobility in their professional life can be achieved through HRMS.

Questions to Answer

Of course, before jumping into any solution head first, there are a few questions that you need to clarify. Some of the questions you may need to ask yourself and your team include:

–          Are your company and the teams within ready to adopt mobility into the work life? Can they operate smoothly in a mobile world?

–          Is your security strong enough for HRMS to support a mobile workforce?

–          Are all the basic organizational processes in place and can they support this feature?

–          Does your company’s network have the means to support the bandwidth that is required?

–          Do the required employees have access to that bandwidth?

–          What steps do you need to take to ensure there is a constant rise in productivity and success?

Once these questions are answered, you can proceed with incorporating HRMS Software into your company. Since it results in a centralized system of documents and records, the channels of communication open up and become transparent. In a mobile business world, having streamlined processes hold utmost importance and HRMS provides that. Although HRMS supports mobility, the managers should define goals and strategies clearly so that any chances of discrepancies are minimized. Numerous human resource management software companies assure that through HRMS, you can measure the performance of the mobile talent in your company and quantify their performance. Even though the employees may be away from their work stations, it is possible to control their productivity and focus on their efficiency.

Supervising a mobile taskforce calls for better management and facilitating modern working techniques. HRMS lends you a helping hand in the same. An automated system like HRMS streamlines communication, boosts productivity and strengthens trust too. When the managers can track and monitor the work being done by their team even beyond the office boundaries, trust automatically builds up. At the same time, all the data within your system is protected at all times. Along with all these, the company’s compliance is also strengthened.
