Help Your Employees Understand Company Goals

Posted on October 26, 2012


Setting company goals can help your business achieve real success.  But one of the most difficult steps towards achieving those goals is helping your employees understand and work towards them.  DaVinci Business Graphics shows you ways to help your employees understand company goals.

In 2001, a study found that “A mere 7% of employees today fully understand their company’s business strategies and what’s expected of them in order to help achieve company goals.”  Today, that number probably hasn’t improved by much.

Not Understanding Goals = Less-Than Productive Work

If your employees don’t understand their connection to the company’s overall goals, it can lead to confusion and less-than productive work activity.  On the other hand, employees that understand their individual goals and how those goals fit into the overall company strategy are typically more engaged in their work.

Engage Your Employees

To help your employees become more engaged, start by communicating clear expectations.  A good way to do this is by using a chart or graph to convey the company’s overall goal.  Also, communicate individually with each employee to let them know what is expected of them.  To motivate your employees, create reward systems for both individual and team performance.

Eliminate Redundancy

Every employee’s contributions to the company’s overall goals should be unique. Eliminate redundancies so that your employees are not duplicating the efforts of others.  This makes for greater accountability and transparency.
