There is this popular saying by Amber Hurdle which says,
“You have got to get your team to not only understand your company brand but also to understand their personal brand”.
Companies nowadays are working hard to build a powerful employer brand and they try to showcase whatever they do in the smartest possible ways. This helps them stand out of the crowd and cut off the competition as well. At the same time they need their employees to become brand ambassadors to their company. Employee recognition is the need of the hour.
So organizations need ways to identify the top performers in order to nurture them, reward them and motivate others to be at the top of their game. Further to this, managers are also defining different categories wherein employees could be placed based on their individual employee productivity and then recognized accordingly.
To be Precise, there are two kinds of Performers:
The Jack of All Trades
Someone who may not be an expert of his/her domain but has a decent understanding of everything, is research oriented, a great communicator, a great sourcer and thereby has interesting ways to complete his tasks smartly. Whatever is assigned to him, he can do it in his own ways. Sometimes even seeks assistance from others but ultimately completes the task at hand. Their visible employee productivity is high, though the abilities might be a matter of thought – BUT, does it matter?
The Master of One
This guy is the expert of a particular domain. The perfect developer, the perfect digital marketer, the perfect sales guy and so on; all are the masters. They have the domain knowledge, can easily guide others and may or may not be the perfect communicators but still the ones which are always in demand. They do one thing perfectly and work hard, many a times smartly as well and are genuinely the most productive employees of the organization. As they are constantly in demand with competitor companies, organizations need to take care while identifying and rewarding them. One weak link can cost heftily to the company.
Identification of the best employees, the performers is an essential duty of the HR Manager. Looks easy but its not so in the real world thanks to the shortage of time with heavy deadlines.
The question is, how can HR managers identify who is a performer, who is not and if he is then of what kind?
