All You Need To Know About Reaching Company Goals [Infographic]

We’re a month into the New Year and, if you’re like most of us, you’ve already thrown in the towel on your resolution to stay fit. However, we hope you haven’t given up so quickly on your business goals for 2016.

We tend to think of achieving goals as a linear process. Once a target is set, we move in that direction. If we’re lucky enough to be successful, we pat ourselves and move on. But in reality, it’s more of a web of intersecting factors that determine what we accomplish.

Everything from the communication standard you set during the hiring process to how employees are acknowledged, affects every goal you set. To better understand the do’s and don’ts of achieving goals, ClearCompany, a talent management platform that helps you monitor and align all your talent objectives, compiled the infographic below.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Just 33% of employers give job candidates a profile describing what a successful employee looks like.
  • Only 13% of employees strongly feel their manager helps them set performance goals.
  • 67% of employees who said their manager focused on their strengths instead of their weaknesses are engaged.
  • 91% of employees that feel valued by their superiors report being more motivated to do their best.

Check out the full infographic, to see how your company can be more successful when it comes to setting and achieving goals.

  • There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
