TecHR recently published an in-depth interview with BetterWorks CHRO Diane Strohfus. Although her career choice was originally finance, she eventually wound up in HR in a position that put her around a lot of companies and leaders who were in transition periods. Her job involved working with new leaders, helping them set goals and assisting them in monitoring their progress. She said that when an opportunity to work with BetterWorks came along, she took it since the company embodied everything that she was passionate about.
Ms. Strohfus explained BetterWorks and its platform during the interview. She started by pointing out that most employers use outdated and ineffective ways of managing and tracking employee performance. This applies to leaders, managers, teams and individual workers.
BetterWorks is a Continuous Performance Management® solution that tracks productivity. With the program’s tools, managers can identify, develop and reward talent. They can help employees set actionable goals and can continually monitor their progress. This gives them the chance to encourage or correct employees quickly to prevent actions or issues from becoming long-term problems. With a design that engages and empowers employees, the program helps reduce attrition.
According to Ms. Strohfus, drawing real-time insights is far more valuable than tracking completion rates. She said that companies can boost their performance monitoring goals with BetterWorks since it is easy to implement and to use. It is designed for professionals with busy schedules and multiple tasks to complete. The reports are easy to read, and the features are easy to use.
