While goal setting is a simple concept, it’s difficult to apply across an entire workforce. Every employee needs to have individual goals that move the needle for their team and the organization. That requires considering each person’s unique skills and knowledge and determining how they’ll contribute to the organization’s grand plans.
But more importantly, employees need to understand exactly what their goals are. They must know what they’re being asked to accomplish, how they’ll do it, and what success looks like.
Assigning employees vague goals and hoping for the best doesn’t work. Fortunately, there are numerous goal-setting methods that are used every day by organizations of all sizes and types. In this guide, you’ll learn about five popular techniques for setting effective employee goals.
