HR Strategy | Revamp Your Incentive Program To Get The Best Results From Employees




Employee Behaviors

What type of behavior does your organization encourage?


Does your incentive program involve encouraging employees to achieve behavior-focused goals? If not, your business may be missing out on receiving the best work performance possible from employees.
According to H&S HR Manager, Travis Sinquefield, research has shown that the best performance comes from defining, emphasizing, and reinforcing the behaviors that are important to an organization. Just as with training programs — which require constant reinforcement after the training in order to be successfully implemented and applied in the organization — the same goes for performance management
By switching the focus on the behaviors that lead to successful results, the performance management system can be designed to constantly emphasize and reinforce the desired behaviors, thus creating a strong, performance-based culture.
When designing a behavior-focused program, it is critical to take the time to really understand and do the following:

  • What behaviors are desirable and impact organizational results?
  • After you answer this question, you must then constantly reinforce those behaviors through communication and feedback.
  • Once employees understand the behaviors that are important to both the organization and the individual being successful, and how that leads to the desired result, a stronger culture of understanding and mutually beneficial goals will develop.

What approach has your organization taken towards performance management? Is it designed to reinforce and emphasize the end results, or is it designed to reinforce and emphasize critical behaviors?

HR Consulting Now Available Through H&S Companies

By: Travis Sinquefield

H&S Companies is pleased to announce that we now offer human resources (HR) consulting to our clients. We offer HR system audits, performance and talent management systems, hiring and on-board systems, record-keeping and compliance solutions and advice, retirement and benefit consulting, and general HR consulting services. We are committed to providing a solution tat solves your complex human resource problems and needs.

As an HR consultant, I receive a variety of questions from clients concerning the HR function within the organization. Most of these questions come from small business owners who are trying to understand the myriad of laws and regulations they must follow concerning record keeping and employee management. New laws and rulings come out on a daily basis, and it can be a full-time job just to keep track of the changes that occur within the HR landscape. The most common questions I am asked include: “What laws and regulations are applicable to my business? Does the Family Medical Leave Act apply to my business? What about the Equal Opportunity Employment Act? What am I required to keep in my employee files? And how long do I keep it?”

There are many questions and issues that arise when looking at the HR needs of an organization. For many of these questions, however, the answer varies based upon the business. Even a law such as FMLA may or may not apply to your company, even if you have 50 or more employees. In addition, each company has its own culture, policies and procedures that have a profound impact on the effectiveness of the organization.

A comprehensive HR system will not only fulfill your compliance and legal requirements, but also foster and develop a strong, efficient workforce that allows your business to grow. Many business owners are concerned about the complexities of HR systems but they do not need to be cumbersome as long as they are designed to meet the unique needs of your organization. If you need help navigating the world of human resources, please contact H&S Companies and we’ll develop a solution that fits your business needs.
