Today’s post comes from the Human Capital category on our website and is entitled Employee Reviews.

The greatest asset any company will ever have are the people who work there. And, those who work hard inside of a company want to feel appreciated and valued. Compliments for these good people will go far to create a culture of respect and will pay many dividends. This is especially true when someone has a tough job and it takes so much effort to get the job done. During the cold hard winter months of Utah, I often drive by construction sites and see construction workers out there doing their job. I really admire these guys for putting up with the elements and carrying on in spite of difficult working conditions. One of the best books I ever read on managing people within a company was entitled “The ROI of Human Capital” by Dr. Jac Fitz-enz.

Dr. Fitz-enz talked about the importance of employee reviews. He recommended that at a minimum every employee should have a formal review every six months. I personally believe that employee reviews should be even more often than this. Employee reviews are really just good communication between leaders and followers. This good communication is how problems are solved and more efficiency is created within an organization. The more efficient an organization can be the more that organization will flourish. Another insight I want to share about some of the research Dr. Fitz-enz shared was about employee relationships.

Dr. Fitz-enz shared research studies that had been done regarding employee morale and satisfaction. One very interesting study that was done found that those who loved their jobs the most usually had a close friend at work – someone they could confide in and rely on. Isn’t this interesting? Sometimes, this close tie is the driving force that keeps someone on the job, especially if they have a tough job. So, it behooves good leaders to create an environment at work where employees can form these close friendships.
