P5 – explain how employee performance is measured and managed
Describe these 3 methods of measuring performance
1. Performance indicators – performance indicators outline what an employee does right for example if they receive a 10/10 positive feedback from who they serve and zero defects. 2. Goal theory – this is a method of motivation in which someone is given a goal to work towards to so their work output will increase. 3. SMART targets - choose at 3 from this list -
Sales targets – this is a figure that an employee must work towards and they can see if they are meeting it. Is comparable to other months/years
Waiting times – If a customer has to wait less than this will mean that productivity within the business is getting better. This is usually measured in hospitals.
Pass rates – If pass rates are increasing then this means that the organisation is doing something correctly and improving its productivity. If pass rates decrease then the organisation needs to work harder to change this.
