Apply the Hawthorne Effect

  • Elton Mayo described it as the rewards you reap when you pay attention to people. The mere act of showing people that you're concerned about them usually spurs them to better job performance.

It may not be the employee

  • Don't be surprised if this performance analysis turns up factors outside the control of the worker. Addressing such factors usually has an immediate favorable impact on workers, such as improving productivity, improving commitment and trust.

Find the right solution

  • Most people don't like thinking about their problems. Instead, they modify their behavior to adapt to the problem situation, hence poor performance. Watch the effect on employees after you have done some analysis to define the real problem and determine the most appropriate solution. An hour or two of analysis can yield significant productivity improvements, that otherwise would have gone unnoticed.
