Performance Evaluations can be tough to create, especially for the first time. If building off of a process that’s already in place, it’s easy to identify holes and areas of improvement to continue working towards a performance evaluation process that works for your organization’s culture and goals. However, building one from scratch can be significantly harder. Other than the obvious suggestion to remember that this process is iterative and can continue to be improved upon, the closer that you can get to an end result the first time around will help to ensure consistency over the years when evaluating an employee that has been around for that whole time.

What is a Training Database?
Across most businesses, there is some sort of training that takes place. Whether this training is to keep employees abreast of the latest trends across the industry, or simply onboarding an employee with relevant HR information or organizational practices, it doesn’t matter. Each and every training that is completed to advance careers or to remain informed of changes should be documented by the relevant personnel to ensure there is no oversight.

Is Your Small Business in Need of Workforce Management Software?
Small business professionals are no strangers to hard work and its value for an organization. Oftentimes jumping into multiple tasks that are not tied to a job description but helpful for the health of the organization, small business employees and managers work tirelessly to propel a small business to success. It is not uncommon to find small businesses that go without the technology and advances of the larger corporations because of limited resources and time, but if there is one piece of software a small business should not go without - it is workforce management software.
Small Business Software: Workforce Management Necessities
Old habits die hard. We’ve all heard it said, and within a company it couldn’t be more true. From employee number one to employee “X” habits become culture - what is set into motion in the beginning tends to become the foundation, and changing a foundation is difficult. While sometimes it doesn’t make sense when strategizing for a business to take into consideration what you envision future success will look like, but failure to do so can lead to employee habits that eventually get your business into trouble.
Unique Challenges Small Businesses Face When it Comes to Choosing Software
Small businesses, whether a start-up or a purposefully small business by design, can face many challenges when it comes to just about every facet of the organization - from hiring the right talent, to retaining that talent in the face of more glamorous big brands, from choosing the right software that is not only affordable but is scalable, to finding the time to even explore solutions to problems before it is too late. Oftentimes, executives and managers within a small business are wearing multiple hats with various roles and responsibilities - no task is too small for a small business manager to dive into, nor is a task too large in scope to exclude all employees. Oftentimes most, if not all, employees are included in making big picture decisions, and even the smallest of voices with the seemingly littlest amount of influence are heard and considered. While each of these scenarios can present a unique challenge that are not seen as a company gets larger, this is often how small businesses rise to success - they are not bogged down by bureaucracy and red-tape especially when onboarding new solutions: software, in particular.
