Performance management 'necessary to drive up employee engagement'
Companies should invest in performance management systems in order to address any issues relating to poor employee engagement within their organisations.
A recent survey published by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) revealed that less than four in ten employees claim to be engaged at work, a trend that is negatively affecting productivity.
The CIPD will be holding a Performance Management Conference in October in order to highlight ways of preventing this issue, such as effective communication throughout the organisation and the linking of objectives.
Other key priorities include building positive relationships between line managers and staff that are based on trust and empowerment.
Ben Willmott, head of public policy at the CIPD, said: "Performance management has a key role to play in enhancing organisational performance by ensuring that all individuals understand their expected contribution to business objectives and are equipped with the skills and support to achieve this."
Last week, a poll conducted by Redshift Research and PlusHR revealed that 75 per cent of companies do not consult their HR professionals when formulating business plans, which could be having a negative impact on employee engagement.
