Two of the most important components of a performance-driven culture are ensuring that employees understand the relationship between their jobs and the company's goals, and ensuring the understanding that poor employee performance will not be tolerated by management.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 22, 2009
Profiles International, a global leader in employment evaluation and human resource management assessment tools, has released a report detailing the steps that businesses can take in order to maximize their productivity. This report is based on Profiles' research into America's Most Productive Companies, and provides concrete suggestions for maximizing productivity that are based on the practices used by the most productive companies.
"Our research shows us that there are 5 People Attributes that contribute to the success of a company, and one of those is the creation of a performance-driven culture," says Bud Haney, co-founder and CEO of Profiles International. "Two of the most important components of a performance-driven culture are ensuring that employees understand the relationship between their jobs and the company's goals, and ensuring the understanding that poor employee performance will not be tolerated by management."
The report suggests that companies must take such actions as clarifying the activities required of employees if the company is to achieve its objectives. They must also encourage open business communication between employees and managers and create tools to help employees track progress toward their set goals. Managers must send clear messages that poor performance is not acceptable.
"The value of this report is its ability to provide executives with concrete, measureable steps that they can take in order to increase productivity," said Dario Priolo, Managing Director of the Profiles International Research Institute.
