KPIs, or Key Performance Indicators, are an exciting buzzword that gets tossed around in business circles. You might have heard of it, but don’t exactly know what it means. Essentially what KPIs do is enable everyone in your company to understand what needs to be done on a daily basis to reach big goals and milestones. Without them, your company is floundering around without any real mission in mind!
Just as your C-Suite executives need to have KPIs worked into their daily routines, so do your support staff. It’s imperative for everyone to be working their best on the goal at hand; to make your company as great as it can be. Why are KPIs so critical? Let’s break it down
Your Employees Understand The Big Picture And Their Role In It
This is the most important reason why you need KPIs for all of your employees. Employees at all levels are far more enthusiastic about and invested in, a company when they understand how they are important. KPIs let your staff know that their daily contributions are helping the company meet its ultimate goals.
(v)WeCare empowers our employees with the KPIs that they need to understand their importance to the company. They respect the process of limited hold wait time and understand our mandate to actively try to fix customer issues on the first call. Since they know what success looks like, they are able to streamline customer issues and deal with anything that comes their way. Having a crystal-clear indication of how everyone is important is critical to business success.
Employee Reviews Will Be Far More Constructive
Have you ever given one of your employees a negative review, only to have them stare back at you in confusion? Don’t worry. It happens all the time to businesses, and there is a simple reason- your employees were not given actionable KPIs that they could use to measure their own success.
Of course, some employees will simply ignore the KPIs that you give them, but trust us, that makes it all the easier to penalize them for not performing up to scratch! KPIs actually work to make employees and management a team, rather than opposing forces. At (v)WeCare, we understand the importance of a harmonious working environment, which is why our Project Managers are expertly trained on multiple disciplines and able to extend project-specific KPIs to their staff. This not only keeps the projects running smoothly but also allows them to address any issues that might arise!
There Is An Objective Measure Of Success For Everyone
Nobody wants to talk about favoritism in the workplace, but it’s a complaint that often gets tossed around. Perceived favoritism is something that can sink workplace morale and lead to disgruntled and unmotivated employees. Having KPIs specific to each job will eliminate the suspicion of favoritism and keep the workplace operating at an optimal level.
(v)WeCare strives to keep our workplace as professional as possible, and that means putting in specific KPIs for all of our reps. They know that we are operating on the level, and they are committed to helping drive success!
The Establishment Of Milestones And Goals Will Help Your Company Scale
Fast scaling is one of those things that tends to throw a company into disarray quickly. Suddenly jobs and responsibilities are changing, which can be stressful for everyone. It’s even more stressful when you don’t have KPIs in place to guide people into their new roles. Effective KPIs will enable your company to run as efficiently as possible in times of change.
Since (v)WeCare puts a premium on flexibility and the ability to help companies scale, we understand how transparent KPIs go a long way to quickly mobilizing your team to reach their new goals. We do it all of the time with our massive professional network and superstar outsourcing staffs!
KPIs Help Keep The Office As Productive As Possible
A confused office is an unproductive office. If employees don’t know what they are supposed to be doing, they will make something up. Sometimes that is okay, but most of the time, it just leads to more confusion! If you want your office to be as productive as possible, give your employees KPIs.
Productivity and harmony are two cogs in the well-oiled machine of the workplace. (v)WeCare understands this, which is why we have extensive training for all of our outsourcing employees. We empower them to succeed by giving them the building blocks and milestones that they need to make success a reality!
KPIs can help your business go from mediocre to superstar. Start employing them today, and you’ll be amazed by the results!
