The Importance of Performance Monitoring Training

Effective performance monitoring allows managers to build up an accurate picture of their employees’ activities and how they contribute to the organisation’s overall goals. It shows where their strengths lie and where there is room for improvement.

Training in this essential management skill is an investment for any organisation that takes their managers’ skillsets and their employees’ skills progression seriously.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Monitoring performance is important for all managers and business leaders because it gives a clear impression of where activities are going well and where there is room for improvement. For employees, it is important to have a good idea of their strengths and goals for improvement, as they are then able to build on their skills and prepare for progression in their role.

You monitor performance effectively by taking a collaborative approach with your employees. Workers should be consulted and asked for their opinion and views at each stage. You can also set clear expectations and targets to reach, so performance can be measured against these – this is simpler in some roles than others, but it is possible regardless of job role.

You can still monitor performance effectively when working remotely or managing a remote team. It makes regular communication over video chat or phone even more important. When managing remotely, it is crucial to set clear expectations and targets. These can then be monitored in the same way as they would be in-person.
