3 Tips For Engaging Underachievers, Average Contributors and Top Performers

June 26, 2018 | By Mike Ryan

Setting specific goals and applicable objectives has always been the best way to increase an employee’s motivation and improve their performance. But today’s top organizations are now taking goal-setting strategies to a whole new level. They are taking into account where the employee ranks as a contributor and then providing them with specific objectives and leadership opportunities that will spark incremental improvement.

To these companies it’s become clear that social recognition is the ideal complement to their goal-setting strategies. How do they use it to increase performance across all employee groups?

In this month’s Performance Perspective we explore:

  • Refocusing underachieving employees

  • Encouraging and challenging average workers

  • Getting even more from top performers
