BLOOM Updates: Custom Review Cycles

We've had a few questions about review cycles.   Previously, you  could only choose 180 or 365 days and that cycle was for all of your reviews. So when it came time to approve/create a review, you had to remember, I didn't want 180, I really wanted 90 days, so now I have to click the calendar and change the date.

Learn How to Write Effective Role Descriptions

It may be tempting to think of role descriptions as relatively unimportant documents compared to the many other tasks competing for your attention. In reality, though, role descriptions directly relate to organizational efficiency, growth, and success. Carefully written role descriptions guide the hiring process, help chart a course for employees’ future, and properly orient them to the overall strategy of your organization. A well-articulated, detailed role description is the foundation for aligning people with strategy.

Empower Employees to Make Their Own Career Choices: Treat Them Like Adults

There’s nothing more disturbing or destructive than when employers avoid giving employees the true, honest feedback they need to succeed. Often the avoidance is more about maintaining a sense of control. It’s about the employer’s need to be liked or about their need to maintain their own sense of success as a manager—if they don’t focus on areas to improve, then everything must be fine!

Employees aren’t children with fragile egos, or if they are highly sensitive, then you need to determine whether they are the types of employees that you want to develop and manage. Employees need and deserve direct, adult feedback about their performance. They need to know how to adapt and improve, otherwise they’ll fail and eventually the organization will fail to meet its objectives, too.
