High performing organisations need high performing staff. Poor performance is one of the key problems that stops organisations from achieving their goals and objectives. When everyone is skilled, motivated and provided with the right environment organisations see dramatic results.
When performance is poor staff and managers feel demotivated and unhappy. Conflict can arise between team members and the overall standard of work within the organisation can slip. If underperformance is allowed to continue unchecked, it can easily become the accepted standard. Because investment in human capital is not maximised, an underperforming workforce is extremely costly to any organisation.
Organisations contact us when a team or an individual is struggling to meet their expectations. Often this will be a new member of staff, a new team or someone that has recently been promoted. Sometimes they may be working hard, but not delivering the quality or volume of work required. On other occasions the person appears to lack the commitment the organisation desires or their commitment and motivation varies widely.
We work with your organisation, managers and team members to find the root causes of underperformance. Once these have been identified, we work with you to develop a performance management strategy that is suitable for the size and culture of your organisation and the issues identified. Sometimes this may include making changes to the working environment, processes and procedures, the team or the structure of the organisation. Normally it involves working with your managers to support them in acquiring the skills they need to supervise the performance of others and to help them implement performance management tools.
High performance is the key to success for most organisations and it benefits everyone. Staff enjoy working within a high performance team and sharing successes, and the organisation achieves, and often exceeds the goals and objectives that have been set. With the right systems, environment and management skills in place poor performers can soon become high achievers.
