BetterWorks Cloud-Based Platform Instills Motivation, Helps Achieve Shared Company Vision
A recent Gallup poll showed that companies whose employees were “highly engaged” in their jobs were 21% more profitable than in firms where motivation was flat.
How do you foster high employee engagement and positive morale? Three ways have been identified.
First, scrap those old annual performance reviews that look backward over an employee’s performance in favor of a forward-looking approach. That means having conversations with employees multiple times per year. Focus on what’s happening right now and how improvements in performance can be made in real-time.
Second, make managers better managers. Managers are a key activation point within a business. Help them maintain progress by supplying them with coaching and feedback.
Third, instill a sense of purpose in workers. For an employee to be motivated, they must have a purpose they believe in and a genuine desire to fulfill that purpose. They want to feel they can help grow the business while also bettering themselves personally.
How do you get it done? As it turns out, there’s a software that business owners can plug into to achieve all three objectives outlined above. It’s called BetterWorks. It’s a cloud-based platform designed to help employee teams set goals and reach those goals
The BetterWorks platform is inherently social. It automatically shares goals across a company profile. It invites all to participate in a shared vision in a way that motivates everyone to achieve goals both as a team and personally. The BetterWorks system sets specific targets and provides transparent ways to monitor incremental progress toward achieving them.
