How do you help your employees take ownership of their work?
Workflow technology can erase excuses for missing the mark, and help your employees to excel without a manager breathing down their back.
Erase these flimsy employee justifications for not meeting objectives with workflow technology:
I don’t know where I stand. Workflow technology tracks employee progress. So whether they’re working with a shared checklist, or robust recruiting software, employees know how close they are to meeting their goals now - not just at the end of the month. I can’t find the information I need. Workflow technology gives everyone access to the information they need to do their job. Recruiters have candidate information, and can see who the primary account manager is on their jobs. Researchers can see what types of jobs are coming down the pipeline and source accordingly. Salespeople can see who is the primary rep for each client and avoid stepping on each other's toes. I have too many distractions on my plate. Workflow technology keeps employees on the path toward a placement. Workflow designates tasks, roles, rules, and procedures, while technology keeps employees aligned with their responsibilities. Employees can focus on their specific tasks, and avoid pursuing fruitless endeavors. I’m not doing what I love. Take redundant, menial tasks off of their plates, so they can focus on putting their strengths to work. Workflow technology automates mundane tasks (like data entry), so that your star players can use their charisma, intuition, and persistence to sell candidates and clients on your services. You don’t care about my performance. Providing your employees with the best technology - and a great process for using it - demonstrates you are invested in their success, so that you can retain the best talent.
You have enough challenges in your day without trying to squeeze potential out of your employees. Workflow technology that automates business processes and best practices can empower your employees to work with greater autonomy and reach higher objectives.
