Help Your Talent Grow With Constant Feedback

According to a 2015 study by TriNet, 74 percent of millennials frequently feel “in the dark” about how their managers and peers think they’re performing at work. Matt Meuleners, lead instructor at the Accelerate Institute by FOCUS Training, shares best practices for providing feedback. Help your top talent feel that they are supported and valued during their performance reviews by:

  • Being preparedOff the cuff feedback can sometimes be ineffective or even misinterpreted.
  • Staying on target. Don’t deviate or get distracted from the core message. 
  • Showing up with evidence. The result has been this, try this. Give your employees specific examples.
  • Giving feedback regularly and in real time.  Being raised in the Internet age, Millennials are used to receiving feedback immediately.
