From Harvard Business Review: Work-Life Balance Is Easier When Your Manager Knows How to Assess Performance

work life balance

“Changing the way we evaluate goes to the very core of good management. Think about how much more competitive your whole organization would be if managers:

  • Defined performance in terms of customer satisfaction, core activities, or project completion.
  • Regularly held goal-setting and feedback sessions with employees, and used goal attainment as the core of performance evaluation.
  • Understood which aspects of employees’ jobs lend themselves to flexible work and which need to be performed at set times in the office.
  • Allowed more flexibility in how, when, and where work gets done, while ensuring that enough time is spent at the office to promote communication, collaboration and innovation.
  • Gradually allowed more freedom and flexibility employees who perform well and earn trust.
  • Recognized that we can maintain or even increase performance standards in professional environments while letting go of exactly how work gets done.”
