So, how to do it right? This article at SmartCompany provides some people management tips for entrepreneurs to help them save their time and boost productivity.
People Management Tips
Regular Review Meetings
“Regular performance reviews that are tailored to your organization and aligned to your business goals are a major asset,” says the author. These performance meetings help you keep track of performance and engagement. Further, they enable you to recognize and reinforce good behavior among employees. Schedule these meetings once every three to six months.
Ensure your meeting agenda includes:
- Clear expectations, goals, and targets that can be reviewed and updated
- Vivid business objectives that directly contribute to the enterprise’s success
- A platform for the teams to share their feedback
Manage Leave Requests
Use HR software to ease the stress of managing leave requests. HR software allows you to:
- Track and manage requests from one place
- Set up individual leave allowances
- Plan better and avoid potential clashes
Using software allows you to bring transparency as employees too can view their total leave allowance or book their time off.
Put Your People First
Prioritize employee experience by swapping spreadsheets for seamless software. Automate and streamline tasks such as filling in employee data, tracking training schedules, and other essential everyday tasks.
