How to Create a Positive Workplace Environment

If you are a Guardian Tracking client, you probably already know that positive recognition is one of our core values. Why? Because it works.

Employee Evaluations as a Process, Not an Event

Most managers and employees dislike evaluations. Why? It is because in most organizations employee evaluations are an event, not a process. What do I mean by that?

We pull out the evaluations tool, write the employee’s name at the top and go to work. We have very little, if any, information to support the ratings that we assign.
