When real-time performance feedback is seen as the ‘norm’, it becomes a valuable tool for improving performance and working relationships. Many businesses (and employees) make the common mistake of waiting for one-to-one performance reviews to really express how they feel, which can sometimes be too late. If feedback is communicated on a real-time basis, any issues will be dealt with, as and when they occur.
Real-time feedback with the help of a performance management system fosters a sense of belonging and meaning within an organisation through repeated engagement.
These regular conversations between managers and employees can help identify the causes of burnout before they lead to more serious issues, bringing to light any unfair treatment or lack of communication and support, as well as allowing managers to adjust workloads and deadlines to help employees remain happy in their role.
