WorkPAL is our flagship OD tool – bringing together Work with Performance Appraisal and Learning to provide an integrated solution capable of delivering true performance management.
Having been developed with the input of many cross-sector and cross-functional contributors, users, managers, Human Resources and OD experts, and senior executives it’s the prime example of the ‘village to raise a child’ analogy, too...
Engages staff by being easy to use and giving them control
Aligns staff with the organisation’s values, behaviours and corporate priorities
Measures the improvement being made allowing organisations to remain strategically responsive
8 benefits of WorkPAL:
WorkPAL can be accessed at anytime, from anywhere you’ve got internet connectivity – so if you have a thought or an idea, why not just pick up your tablet or smart phone and make a note – and maybe share it with a colleague?As a manager you’ll love WorkPAL too. As it allows you to edit, update and look back at your staff’s development and performance you can be assured everything’s in one place – so no more paperwork lost forever to your bottom drawer!
By giving you measurable and comparable data, WorkPAL allows you to see who your potential talent is, and to support them to greater things.
Imagine being able to see snap shots of your workforce at any given time – who’s performing to the top of their remit, who’s perhaps struggling – and then being able to target them to build on their potential and ambitions.
That’s what WorkPAL gives you!
WorkPAL makes performance conversations the norm... Having meaningful shorter term objectives and new levels of openness, staff embrace the opportunity to own their work and make a real and measurable difference.
And with the opportunity to be recognised by management and peers as a ‘rising star’ – staff soon want to get on the high performance bandwagon!
Using nudge technology and working on a principle of ‘thank you, now have you thought of this?’ rather than ‘thank you and goodbye’ WorkPAL helps embed that culture of performance and ongoing conversations.If it isn’t where your culture is just yet, that’s ok – once your staff get used to it they’ll wonder why they haven’t been doing it all along!
WorkPAL provides whole rafts of ‘real time’ data available at the touch of a button – giving you the opportunity to be truly proactive when it comes to identifying and responding to risks and opportunities.
You can interrogate the data, analyse it, and act on it – including by making the most of WorkPAL’s integrated suite of features. So if you want to keep ahead of the market, invest your resources wisely, and make the most of your best asset (your people!) you have everything you need to help you do that.
WorkPAL gives you the opportunity to align your workforce – not only in terms of what they do (making sure their work supports the delivery of your corporate priorities), but also in terms of how they do it (making sure they fit the organisation’s desired culture, eg its values and behaviours).
So with all of this alignment you’re not only making sure everyone’s swimming in the same direction – but you’re identifying waste and duplication, and engaging your staff to excellent performance along the way.
When implementing WorkPAL, all elements of personal development you offer your staff can be refined – ie so that any development chosen and added to a staff member’s My Personal Development is relevant to them, at their specific level, with their specific development needs..
There is no longer any need for ‘sheep dipping’ your staff through learning that might not be relevant for them. The misdirection of resources can be stopped instantly – saving you time, energy and money.
All organisations have a duty of care to their employees, and delivery to their service users – be that through ensuring compliance with statutory and mandatory training, or through extended wellbeing pieces.
At any stage you can see right down to individual staff members’ compliance – who is up to date, who has impending deadlines, and who is overdue. To help you manage this you can also send targeted emails from the administration centre of WorkPAL to encourage activity and/or offer support for staff members, and diagnose if there are blockers holding them back.
