If there is one thing that everyone in today’s multigenerational workforce can agree on, it’s the desire to be recognized for doing a good job. Older workers may have become accustomed to the annual performance review, but also want ongoing appreciation and real-time feedback – just like their younger counterparts.
HR Dive reports that research from various sources finds that people want to know how they are doing on a regular basis. They want actionable feedback to understand where they are performing well and how they can improve. Managers who provide ongoing and productive commentary are valued by their teams, and employees who receive frequent input are more engaged overall.
Jason Roberts, global head of technology and analytics at Randstad Sourceright's Talent Innovation Center, says he interacts with staff on a regular basis and shares insights on our collaborative approach to performance feedback. “That’s become a foundational piece of our feedback strategy,” he says. “... Career focus is built into every conversation we hold.”
