TriNet Perform is excited to announce a number of new features, including the addition of Cascading Goals. Cascading goals is the process of adopting goals at different levels within a company to ensure alignment between the organization's objectives, and employees' activities and goals.
Cascading business goals link business objectives and performance measures to individual employee performance appraisal targets, making a performance review more productive. Cascading business goals shares with employees:
- How the organization measures success.
- The specific value they add to the organization.
- The specific impact of both good and poor performance on a team, program, and entire organization.
When an organizational objective is created, the objective is translated into individual goals. These individual goals are cascaded down the organizational chart from the CEO down throughout departmental heads, line managers and frontline employees.
"It’s not easy to align your workforce with high-level company goals. Have a clearly defined goal at the executive level and make sure you cascade it appropriately. Goals will become more granular as you cascade down, but your junior employees need to know the ultimate company goals. If your employees don’t know what you want, how can they know what they need to do to grow and develop within the company?"
-Lynne Vu, Principal Human Capital Consultant, TriNet
We’ve also improved Goal Filtering and Weights. Goals now include new preset filters that group the goals by team members, by goal categories, and by chronological order. Managers will find it easier to stay on top of team member’s goals and the top tier will be able to get a better picture of overall progress.
