Managing performance is important in any organisation. Some specific business circumstances and activities increase scrutiny of performance related issues and risks. These can include mergers and acquisitions, major change programmes or succession planning.
In other cases, a drop off in the levels of productivity, customer satisfaction or profitability can cause organisations to question whether their human capital is being managed effectively and whether people at all levels are sufficiently engaged.
These are often instances where an external consultant is called in to add specific and impartial expertise. The value of the input you can provide as an external consultant will be heavily influenced by the diagnostic and analysis tools you select.
The Performance Climate System (PCS) is one of many tools at your disposal. However, it’s focus on the critical link between an organisation’s climate, engagement at all levels and operational performance sets it apart. It highlights crucial gaps between the engagement levels of leaders and their teams across six key segments of performance.
Our belief is that the client’s requirements and the nature, size and complexity of the assignment should always drive the choice of performance management tools. For some assignments PCS will be perfect, either on its own or alongside other tools.
This is why we don’t insist that our practitioners either buy a licence or sign up to a predetermined number of campaigns. You have complete freedom to use PCS when and where you believe it will add the most value to your client assignments.
PCS assists in the diagnosis of performance issues and risks. It helps organisations to understand what really drives their performance. Based on the insights provided by PCS, consultants can help their clients plan exactly how and where improvements are needed and to target their interventions and investment effectively.
PCS also pinpoints individual leaders who are best at creating a positive climate, engaging and motivating their teams. Evaluation is objective and provides both a quantitative and qualitative basis for identifying development needs.
By using the PCS tool you can help your clients achieve increased productivity, improved ROI and reduced costs. At the human level it helps organisations work intelligently to boost employee engagement and wellbeing, whilst cultivating more successful leaders.
To be a PCS practitioner you need to become accredited, which you can do through our comprehensive e-learning programme. Find out more about the training and the professional support you will receive. Once you are accredited, ordering your next PCS campaign is quick and simple using your practitioner login.
