At a time when many companies are asking their staff to work from home, to avoid the risks associated with COVID-19, managers and small business owners are suddenly finding themselves in a position where they have a large group of remote workers to manage.
More and more organizations are introducing check-ins as a way of encouraging regular coaching conversations between employees and their managers and as a way of helping managers to get better visibility into their teams.
If you were to ask any CEO what their company's greatest asset is, you would undoubtedly hear them talk about their employees. Any leader worth their salt recognises that it is their employees that gives their company its competitive advantage. Maximising employee performance has to be top of the priorities for any organisation. But the needs and wants of today's workforce is changing rapidly and traditional HR practices are no longer a good fit for today's nimble and team-driven workforce.
