It’s guaranteed to raise productivity as it’s a simple process to set your goals for a certain time period and you either meet them or you don’t.
However, it’s not just that simple. Companies are taking a more holistic approach and it’s the complete person they look at now, not just how you perform in a certain role.
Are you helpful and friendly to customers and colleagues?
Can you prioritise?
Are you accountable for your outcomes? Your development?
Are you consistently improving?
