Good goal setting is all about keeping your goals front of mind. The more you refer back to your goals and measure your progress against those goals, the more likely you are to achieve them. Goal setting is a core part of the PeopleGoal platform:
Company objectives are top-level strategic goals for your company for this period. Typically there are three or more of these (but rarely more than eight). These are the high-level objectives that your company wants the whole firm to work towards. For example, a company objective may be 'Boost sales revenue by 20% in FY2014' or 'Improve customer average feedback score to 4.5'.
Company objectives should be set by senior management once per performance period (these will automatically be replicated when you open a new period on PeopleGoal).
Personal goals belong to you. Managing your own career is the key to success in the modern work environment, so wherever possible you should define your own personal goals for the current period. You are accountable and responsible for achieving these goals, but PeopleGoal helps you set SMART goals:
Good teamwork is about pulling together in the same direction. PeopleGoal helps promote good teamwork by allowing managers and executives to set Team and/or Department goals. When these are created each team/department member will be responsible for contributing to that goal, and the goal will appear under their 'goals overview' page. Each team member can update their progress against the Team/Department goal.
