Employer Accountability For Employees

Better Accountability = Better Performance

Accountability leads to betterment in performance and an overall increase in employees’ morale. And that’s a no-brainer but even then, surveys have shown that around 40% of employees working in US organizations are not held accountable for their actions.

Desirable Accountability Outcomes Include:

  • Builds trust

  • Improves performance

  • Strengthens culture

  • Promotes ownership and sense of purpose

  • Increases employees’ confidence

  • Increases employee participation

  • Creates more opportunities for creativity and innovation

  • Increases employee satisfaction and retention

Here is an Accountability EXAMPLE:

A client had a very fragmented structure where departments actually competed (and were compensated) based on department performance goals. They had no understanding of how their work affected others up or downstream. We designed a “take a friend to work day” where employees worked in different departments to see how their work affected others and got them focused on a common purpose and goals. Within 9 months they recorded increases in productivity, job satisfaction/happiness, and retention.

Here is your Accountability CHALLENGE:

Turn your focus from the HOW to WHY your people perform certain tasks and job responsibilities. It will give them a sense of purpose and understanding of the common goals. People like accountability and to have their performance measured so long as they have a sense of purpose. Of course, make it fun!
