5 Ways to Evaluate the Success of Your Team

Improving your efficiency or effectiveness is only as good as your method of determining and evaluating success. It’s easy to earn a win here or there, but repeated success over a long period of time can only be done through hard work, analysis, and reinforcement. Below, we have outlined five ways to gauge the success of your team, how you got there, and what to do to keep it up.

  1. Establish a clear baseline.

First, you must establish a bottom line. This should be the level that you expect your team to operate at, if nothing changes. This is very much like a control group in a scientific experiment – an unadulterated sample for you to track along with actual performance.… Read the rest

Harassment claims continue to dominate the news with a focus moving from the harasser to the organizations who allowed the long-term activity to happen.  The best protection is proactive intervention.  Review your harassment policy ensuring it contains clear provisions on how to report concerns, train employees on that policy and train managers on how to respond to complaints or concerns. This is the time of year for making resolutions of what we want to fix/change/improve in the upcoming year.  I’m sure you already have a list of plans and challenges but adding (and completing) these tactical and strategic “to do” items for your human resources function will assist with compliance and relieve long-term pain.… Read the rest
