Does managing employee performance and behaviour form the foundation of an organisation’s compliance, effectiveness and culture?
Absolutely it does!
From time to time organisations experience periods of much-needed culture change in order to achieve the results they need to grow, compete and win. Have a look at the behaviour in your organisation right now, and imagine how people would act if your company were at its best, especially if their behaviour supported your business objectives. Imagine how much easier it would be to embed new HR strategies and personal development plans. Then ask your managers, “If we had the kind of culture we wanted, in pursuit of the company strategy, what kinds of new behaviours would be common? What previous behaviours would be gone?"
Organisations often fail to manage employee performance and behaviour successfully because front line managers lack the skills and confidence needed for difficult conversations.
Changing or improving the culture of a company or team requires focus, accountability and consistency, and it must be supported from the top. Without total and complete buy-in from executives, the desired culture change will always fail to be achieved.
Despite there being greater awareness of ‘risk’ culture, very few organisations are in a position to properly tackle it.
