Performance Management for Consulting Services

Cascading goals, within the WorkDove platform, are a powerful feature that helps organizations align their objectives from top to bottom. It allows you to share your high-level company goals with your team and then break them down into more specific goals for different departments and individuals.

The goal management method is a systematic approach used to define, track, and achieve objectives effectively. It involves setting SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals, regularly reviewing progress, and adjusting strategies as needed to ensure success.

Check-ins foster alignment and communication between managers and team members, including employee & manager feedback, goal tracking, and pulse checks.  Check-ins and embedded pulse surveys fuel employee engagement, while capturing trends to improve employee retention and development.

Check-ins are initiated by employees and may not always center on performance. They occur more frequently than traditional performance reviews and offer a brief overview of the employee’s overall engagement and developmental requirements. They are meant to create ongoing alignment and provide and opportunity for continuous feedback.

Individual development plans help your team reduce attrition through continuous career development.  An individual development plan is an actionable document that guides employee growth, while outlining career objectives and the steps to achieve them. The plan assesses strengths, identifies areas for improvement, and builds skills to bridge current capabilities and future goals.

A good Individual Development Plan (IDP) is clear, specific, and tailored to the individual’s career goals and development needs. It includes measurable objectives, actionable steps, and timelines for achieving them, with regular reviews and updates to track progress and adapt as necessary.
