Employee performance is usually measured in terms of results and time. But what I feel is just time and result cannot be the parameters to measure employee performance. For example: An employee who shows 9 hours on his worksheet might have wasted most of his time or might have not made much within those hours. Whereas, an employee who works for 5 hours a day might have delivered more on the project he is working on.
Therefore, there are other parameters to measure employee performance.
Creativity: Creativity is not quantifiable, but it is very important as it adds an extra glare to the work you do. Creativity in the work you do shows that you can think in different terms to make the outcome look better and get the best results. So, an employee can measured in terms of his/her creative ability.
Communication: Creativity is understood and achieved only when you can are able to communicate it to your team. Therefore, communication is also one of the parameters to be considered during evaluation.
Absenteeism: To put thoughts into action, it is very important for the employees to be at work. An employee is obviously not performing when he or she is not at work.
Obedience to company policies: It is difficult to be creative and abide by the rules and regulations at the same time. But, when employees can align both of it, then noting like it! It perfectly shows their efficiency.
Personal habits: Talking over the phone for long hours, not being in their seat during work hours, gossiping, sharing tips and recipes during the meetings, throwing attitude, passing comments and so on are not signs of and efficient employee. Therefore, personal habits do becomes a parameter to measure employee performance.
Take initiative: Employees who take initiative expresses his want to learn more to better his work. Organizations always look for employees who are keen to learn and explore more about their industry. Employee performance cam is also measured on this.
