As April comes to a close, we want to take this time to reflect on all that we covered this past month. In April, our blogs focused in on Employee Development. From delivering feedback, to effectively training managers, to talent management, we covered a lot of ground.
Enjoy revisiting these blogs and the many tips and tricks included with each blog post. Please help us expand our community by following us on LinkedIn and Facebook and continue to visit Truvelop’s blog for valuable insights into best practices in performance management, real-time feedback and employee engagement and how to improve the overall employee experience.
Everyone is guilty of practicing bias at one point or another. However, there are ways to mitigate the presence of bias in evaluations, and ensure rater reliability. With Truvelop's Rater Reliability section, we can complete objective and accurate Evaluations.

Customer Success Team Member Juliana Withers hosted Truvelop’s User Community Lunch and Learn on Delivering Different Types of Feedback. According to OfficeVibe, 96% of employees say they want to hear feedback regularly. Because of this, it’s important that managers are giving feedback consistently, but also delivering that feedback productively and effectively. During the Lunch and Learn, Juliana took the attendees on a deep dive into what the different types of feedback are and how managers can share feedback successfully.
We recognize that there will come a time when you have to exit team members from your organization, or pass them over for promotions, raises, and other rewards.

Companies offer training for employees in a variety of roles and functions, but there is typically no formal training for management. While high performing employees are sometimes identified as potential managers and mentored for future roles, most of the time employees are promoted into positions with little training.

Truvelop not only aggregates important data about each employee, it uses that data to inform managers how to effectively engage with the employee. The data collected can generate meaningful insights on the Team Member dashboard to help guide management strategies. These insights are supplemented by our Management Cue Cards and provide managers with suggested proactive management actions to increase engagement with team members.
Coaching is a powerful way to focus on areas of improvement and put into action steps towards meeting goals discovered during performance evaluations. In the Truvelop app, managers can work collaboratively with employees to continuously evaluate performance and understand opportunities for growth or improvement based on the employee’s score.
