Check-ins are a simple way for everyone in your organization to update all their goals at once. (This article zooms in on the importance of keeping goals up-to-date.)
Main benefits of using Check-ins:
- Keep aligned with always up-to-date goals.
Everyone's informed of progress at any time.
- Spend less time updating goals.
Customers save a full working day a year.
- Achieve more of your goals.
Frequent progress updates actually boost goal attainment.
Setting up Check-ins
- Define how often you want to update goals in your organization.
We recommend that you do this every week. In Perdoo, go to Configure > General > Company and select your preferred option under ‘How often do you update goals?’. (If you can't access this option, please contact your Ambassador or someone with superadmin rights.)
- Send automated Check-in reminders
Make sure no one forgets to submit their Check-in. The right timing to submit a Check-in is either at the end of a week (eg, Friday 5pm), or at the beginning of a week (eg, Monday at 9am).
- Show everyone how to submit Check-ins
Check-ins can be submitted through the Perdoo web app (here’s how), through our new mobile app, or through Slack.
To submit Check-ins through Slack, go to Configure > Integrations > Slack and enable ‘Check-in reminders’ under Notifications. (If you don’t see this option, make sure to upgrade to our latest Slack integration).
- Once this is enabled, users will receive the following reminder through Slack:
That’s all. The next step is to make sure that managers regularly review Check-ins of their direct reports. This helps them save time, be better managers, and deliver results that matter.
