The 3 C’s of performance and rewards

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

There’s not much time for writing today as I’m busily putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s webinar.

If you are planning to reward good performance in your team, here are three things to remember:

1.  Always be clear about what you will reward, when and how.  Let your team know what you will be measuring and why.  Rewards are more effective if people know about them in advance.

2.  Stay consistent both in the rewards that you give and the reasons for them.  This means consistency across time and across individuals.  Note:  Being consistent does not mean you have to reward everyone equally.  See point 1.

3.  Be committed to delivering on the rewards you have specified.  If you have any doubt that you will not be able to pay bonuses, for example, then don’t offer them.  It’s very hard to recover from the damage done by a promise that isn’t kept.

That’s it for today.  There will be lots more great information about performance management and rewards in tomorrow’s webinar, so make sure you click here to register

PS. Even if you don’t think you can attend live, it’s worth registering for early access to the recording.

"The last couple of years at batyr has seen incredible growth and the Balance at Work team has supported us along the way. They have helped us improve leadership skills across the team by helping us source and manage mentors, and even engaging as mentors themselves. As a young and fresh CEO Susan has also supported me personally with genuine feedback and fearless advice to achieve great things. "
By Sam Refshauge, CEO, batyr
"We used the Harrison Assessment tools followed by a debrief with Susan, for career development with staff, which then allowed us to work with Susan to create a customised 360 degree review process. Susan has a wealth of knowledge and is able to offer suggestions and solutions for our company. She is always ready to get involved and takes the time to show her clients the capability of Harrison Assessments. "

"Balance at Work are the ideal external partners for us as they completely get what we are trying achieve in the People and Culture space. Their flexibility and responsiveness to our needs has seen the entire 360 approach being a complete success. The online tool and the follow up coaching sessions have been game changers for our business. The buzz in the organisation is outstanding. Love it! Thanks again for being such a great support crew on this key project."

"We use Harrison Assessments with our clients to support their recruitment processes. We especially value the comprehensive customisable features that allow us to ensure the best possible fit within a company, team and position. Balance at Work is always one phone call away. We appreciate their valuable input and their coaching solutions have also given great support to our clients."
By Benoit Ribe, HR Solutions Manager, Polyglot Group
"The leadership team at Insurance Advisernet engaged Susan from Balance at Work to run our leadership development survey and learning sessions. Susan was very professional in delivering the team and individual strengths and opportunities for growth. Susan's approach was very "non corporate" in style which was refreshing to see. I can't recommend Balance at Work more highly to lead, employee and team development sessions."
By Shaun Stanfield, Managing Director, Insurance Advisernet
