Betterworks recently surveyed more than 756 people in HR and people management roles working within US-based enterprises across a wide range of industries, each with more than 500 employees. And amongst these professionals, there was almost universal agreement that people managers are the linchpins that unlock greater levels of performance in any organization.

Good managers align their teams around the most important initiatives, ensure progress with continuous coaching and feedback, recognize each individual’s progress and contribution to the business, and ensure every employee has a career development plan. But not all managers are created equal; in fact, among managers we surveyed 90% of them reported wanting to improve their skills and abilities as coaches.

5 Ways HR Can Help “Upgrade” Their Managers

To help reach this goal, people managers need support, coaching, and resources from HR. Based on our research, we created an infographic that illustrates how HR professionals can ‘upgrade’ their managers with the tools and training they need to:

1. Be Better Coaches

More than HR Pros agree that employee performance increases when employees work together on goals with managers.

2. Help Give and Receive Better Feedback

Of the people managers we surveyed, 81% expressed that technology is useful for creating a less biased performance management process.

3. Work With Their Reports to Set and Attain Goals

Our research found that among HR respondents, 89% agree that employee performance will increase with more timely feedback and coaching from managers.

4. Better Identify, Develop, Reward and Retain High Performers

Almost half of managers in the survey (52%) reported that they want to be better managers, but don’t have the tools to do so

5. Help Their Team Members Facilitate Career Development

Our research found that among HR respondents, 89% agree that employee performance will increase with more timely feedback and coaching from managers.
