Cultivate a Positive Company Culture with Performance Management

Cultivate a Positive Company Culture with Performance Management

Cultivating a positive company culture is key in recruiting and retaining top talent. And often, positive company culture can lead to organizational success. However, effective communication with every single employee is not always easy for leadership teams to manage. 

That’s where BerniePortal steps in to help. Here’s how BerniePortal’s Performance Management feature works in harmony with other HR features and could help grow an organization like yours.


How BerniePortal’s Performance Management Cultivates Positive Relationships with Employees

BerniePortal’s Performance Management feature is a digital hub that allows organizations to grow relationships with their employees, all in one place. Moving Performance Management into a digital hub enables managers and leadership teams to effectively communicate with each team member without the time commitment. 

A 1:1 is a regularly scheduled meeting that managers hold with each of their direct reports, ideally weekly, to provide an ongoing outlet for open communication and dialogue on the full scope of an employee’s responsibilities, successes, and concerns. These 1:1 meetings can be a crucial part of an employee’s growth and development at your organization. The BerniePortal 1:1 tool within the Performance Management features serves as a note-taking device to document agendas and valuable takeaways from your time together for both the employee and manager to utilize.

While 1:1 time with employees is valuable, it’s equally important for leadership teams to keep a pulse on company culture. BerniePortal’s survey tool within the Performance Management feature allows organizations to send various surveys to every employee. These surveys are completely customizable to fit your organization’s needs.

The best part? Survey results and 1:1 agendas stay stored in BerniePortal, allowing both managers and employees to refer back when needed. Documentation of feedback keeps organizations accountable, creating a stronger and more positive company culture.
