Performance Appraisals - Need to measure staff performance?

Performance Appraisals should be ongoing, based on a simple, written "contract" between the person being appraised and his/her immediate supervisor. In a changing environment, such as the sport, fitness, aquatic, coaching, venues, events, leisure and lifestyle sector an evaluation of people's performance is an essential management tool.

Sportspeople has extensive experience in providing simple, working models for employers to implement and maintain a management-administered appraisal system for all employees.

Our 360 degree performance appraisals measure employees against factors known to define top performers, and quantify their contribution to the job, their team and the organisation by surveying those around them.

360 degree performance appraisals help identify and capitalise on a team member’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as highlighting areas for improvement and development, resulting in improved employee satisfaction and retention. Using an online survey tool, we can provide robust and reliable feedback regarding an individual employee’s performance.

Normative data can also be provided, so you can see how your people measure up against a general comparison across a range of industries. This provides greater context to an individual’s results and their specific development needs.
 

Satisfaction - Engagement Surveys - How happy are your staff?

Research shows that engaged employees are happier, more productive and have higher levels of job satisfaction. They are more dedicated to their jobs, have lower absenteeism and are less likely to leave. The Staff Satisfaction - Engagement Survey enables organisations to diagnose current levels of engagement, identify the factors that drive engagement and obtain an insight into their employees’ attitudes and opinions towards their work and work environment.

Employee engagement surveys allow you to identify the key factors that can be leveraged to:

  • Enhance employee engagement
  • Lead to better performance
  • Reduce employee turnover
  • Reduce absenteeism

The Staff Satisfaction - Engagement survey measures employee engagement across twenty factors and provides a comprehensive understanding of the organisational factors that are contributing the most towards engagement. The factors that form the Staff Satisfaction - Engagement survey are identified through a detailed review of research on employee engagement, focusing on key factors with proven empirical links that relate directly to employee engagement.

Sportspeople's survey tool can provide customisable surveys and reports, as well as providing normative data, so you can see how your people measure up against a general comparison across a range of industries.
 

Exit Surveys - Why are your staff leaving?

Employee exit surveys and exit interviews help employers understand where and why employee turnover is occurring and what is required to reduce it. However, too often, exit interviews are unstructured and unsystematic, failing to deliver information in a way that can improve company culture, performance and employee engagement.

This survey is based on over 50 years of research into why people leave organisations, but can also accommodate your own custom questions and leads exiting employees through a set of structured questions to uncover the underlying organisational factors that caused them to leave. Normative data is also provided, so you can see how your people measure up against a general comparison across a range of industries.
 

Benchmarking - Need to know how much a job is worth in today's market?

Employers commonly use benchmarking as part of their general staff performance management system. Sportspeople regularly provides benchmarking to assist employers undertaking staff performance appraisals and in circumstances where a new appointment is being considered.

Sportspeople has accumulated a significant amount of data relating to remuneration practices in the sport, fitness, aquatic, coaching, venues, events, leisure and lifestyle sector. This information has been compiled through Sportspeople's recruitment work since 1996, our research (Sportspeople Jobs Index and Sportspeople Workplace Survey) and as part of our ongoing remuneration benchmarking services.

In the last year Sportspeople was commissioned to benchmark over 100 different positions in the sport, fitness, aquatic, coaching, venues, events, leisure and lifestyle sector.
