Three P's For High-Performing Employees

Arguably, the most important component of an organization is the people. If an organization expects to be successful, it is essential to keep the employees happy. Dealing with people can prove to be a very challenging task. By nature, humans are very complicated beings and each person’s needs differ. Even though some may vary, there are several underlying “needs” that are imperative for employees to be as high performing as possible. First and foremost, everyone wants to be treated respectfully and feel appreciated. Fostering Positive Relationships is one of the most important aspects of creating an environment for high-performing employees to flourish. Next, employers should provide “Just In Time” Professional Development and training for employees. Employees who are trained to conduct their job correctly, waste less time and are able to focus on the organization’s goals and objectives. Finally, employees should be provided with the Proper Materials in order to be successful in their efforts. A baseball manager wouldn’t send his team onto the field without bats, balls or helmets. This situation wouldn’t allow for his team to be successfully during the game. The same is true for the workplace. Proper materials must be provided to create an environment that is conducive for “home runs” in organizations. Remembering these three P’s, will help ensure that your employees can be as High-Performing as possible in order to contribute to the success of the organization.
