Better Decision Making With HR Dashboards and Data Visualisation

Posted by Mathew French on 14 April 2020

HR Dashboards are an indispensable tool for HR professionals. They provide critical data visualisation for relevant metrics across the entire employee lifecycle, including hiring, retention, onboarding, performance, and more. Today's #HRTech makes it possible to purchase dashboard apps to integrate with your other business systems. Or if you have developers within your organisation you can build your own dashboards using excel or by developing your own system. But really, what you want is an HR system with customisable Dashboards built in to your HR software itself. In this HR Blog we look at the benefit of using dashboards to get a real-time overview of your data so that you can gain valuable business intelligence to run an agile and successful organisation using HR automation.

Posted by Mathew French on 14 April 2020

Productive HR reporting is critical to the ongoing success of every business. Developing an HR Dashboard that visualises your HR data in a way that tells the story of your business to the right people in the right way, is your pathway to growth and success. However, it is incredibly difficult for anyone in a business to make informed decisions when HR business partners and other stakeholders lack insight into their own operations and employees. To ensure that leadership and management have the information they need to make informed decisions, HR Professionals need to provide HR data in a way that informs, engages, inspires and persuades. In this week's HR Blog, we explore how to build the right Dashboards for productive reporting on your HR Metrics.

Every year, EthicalJobs hosts the Not For Profit People Conference in its home town of Melbourne; the biggest event of its kind in Australia. The conference provides an opportunity for NFPs, social enterprise and local councils to explore best practice in attracting, managing, training and retaining great employees. Now, more than ever, the mission of creating a more equitable, just and sustainable future is a critical success factor, not just for businesses, but for all of us. We've witnessed an increase in these types of businesses here at Subscribe-HR.

Essential Strategies For Implementing Consistent, Regular Performance Feedback

Posted by Mathew French on 17 December 2019

As we've already discussed in the previous Blogs in this performance management series, transforming the performance management culture in any organisation can be a challenging undertaking. Especially if your performance management, appraisal and development systems do not support the overall business strategy of the business. You need to implement strategies and leverage HR technology to create business growth based on what your business wants to be, how it wants to be known and how work gets done. Brandon Hall Group's 2018 Research Report 'Effective Performance Management' outlines 5 essential strategies for transforming your culture through the integration of a regular and consistent performance management process, an ongoing development framework coupled with the power of Performance Management technology to facilitate these processes. In reviewing and analysing the research data gathered to produce the report, five key strategies emerged as the essential ingredients every organisation needs to develop and evolve a performance management framework that generates long-term business growth.

From Performance Management to Performance Development

Posted by Mathew French on 3 December 2019

Most companies do not require managers to provide regular, ongoing performance coaching or feedback for their direct reports as part of their own objectives, goals or performance assessment. Instead, managers’ operational responsibilities (including budgeting, strategic planning and administrative requirements), make it difficult to prioritise human to human contact with the employees they manage. To succeed in today's business environment however, one of the few things you can be sure of is that THIS MUST CHANGE if organisations want to survive (let alone grow). If leaders want to begin re-engineering their performance management frameworks, managers must be given the resources, systems (that is Performance Management Software) and training they need to meet the new requirements for employee development and improved performance. Let's continue our exploration of why performance management still matters.

Why Performance Management Still Matters

Posted by Mathew French on 19 November 2019

Apparently, many organisations still rely solely on an annual performance review. However, Gallup's 2018 report 'Re-Engineering Performance Management' makes it clear that workers are asking for something different. They want a coach, not a boss. They want clear expectations, accountability, a rich purpose, and most importantly, they want ongoing feedback and coaching. Because the future of work is being shaped by extraordinary changes in technology, globalisation and overwhelming information flow, how we work must also be reimagined. The process of managing performance in the workplace needs to inform, engage and inspire. The means for achieving this, according to Gallup (and many others) requires 're-engineering.' Because performance management is such a big topic, we'll explore what the future of managing performance might look like over the next few weeks and discuss how to implement such change in your organisation. First, let's look at why managing performance really does STILL matter.

How Automation Will Redefine The Organisation, Leadership and Workers

Posted by Mathew French on 24 September 2019

Automation will certainly change human resources as we know it, but the impact will reach far beyond the HR department to encompass the entire employee lifecycle. Organisations that manage such transformation successfully will be those in which leaders and HR professionals recognise what tasks machines can do significantly better than humans and automate only those tasks. Focusing human effort on activities that humans do best will result in a happier, more engaged and more productive workforce overall. Designing such an organisation requires a much longer-term people strategy (one that goes beyond the usual succession planning), coupled with transparent dialogue with the existing workforce about the benefits of automation on what it means for them. This Blog in the HR automation series explores the broader implications that automation will have on leadership, employees and the entity of the organisation itself.
