Strategy 6: Setting Clear Performance Expectations
Here’s how to execute this strategy effectively:
Establish Measurable Goals and KPIs: Define specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART) goals for each employee. KPIs provide a clear path for success, whether they’re onsite or remote. For instance, a marketing team member’s goal could be to increase website traffic by 15% within three months, with KPIs measuring weekly progress.
Regular Progress Assessment: Implement ongoing assessments and tracking mechanisms to monitor employee progress. This ensures that everyone, whether in the office or working remotely, remains aligned with organizational objectives. Regular check-ins and milestone reviews keep everyone on track.
Feedback and Support: Create a culture of continuous improvement by providing constructive feedback and support. Effective feedback sessions, coaching, and mentorship help individuals address challenges and maximize their potential. This boosts morale and performance, contributing to the overall success of your hybrid team.
For example, imagine Sarah, a remote content writer, sets a goal to increase monthly content output by 20%. Her KPIs include tracking the number of articles submitted weekly. Regular check-ins with her manager ensure she’s on course, and feedback sessions address any issues promptly.
