An aligned organization is one that is able to sync the work, metrics, rewards, structure, people, leadership, and culture to strategy for achieving its objectives. Let us take a look at how JOP has been helping organizations with alignment which in turn helps them for scaling up and hyper-growth.
1) Enhanced Decision-Making
Indecision is known to cripple productivity, result in missed deadlines and cause ripple impacts in the functioning of an organization. Organizational alignment gives clarity about who is the decision-maker for each activity of the organization. No organization can afford to take decision-making lightly, especially the ones that are aiming for scaling and growth. An agile framework also enables the employees to focus on performing the task rather than figuring out who is responsible for what. It also helps the organization to move together in one direction – achieving the organizational goals.
Providing you with an effective and agile performance management system, JOP ensures to keep indecisions far away from the functioning of your organization. Through JOP organizations achieve common objectives collectively, have performance reviews, and have mutual motivation amongst each and every one. Making evaluation more holistic in focus, your focus shifts from assessments of lag indicators to check-in-based conversations.
2) Increased Employee Engagement
The majority of the employees want to enjoy their job, feel that their contribution is noteworthy to the big picture, and be appreciated for their work. An aligned organization communicates and connects the employee’s contribution to the organization’s strategy. When employees have a clear understanding of the bridge between their output and the company’s strategy, there is a significant increase in their satisfaction and effectiveness. Moreover, it promotes a sense of camaraderie between the organizational teams. They are able to share constructive feedback and support each other as well.
JOP gives you the perfect medium to engage the greatest assets of your organization. Offering you numerous touchpoints to enhance employee engagement, the JOP index analytics provides insight into the condition of your company‘s performance culture. When the employees are aware of how their contribution leads to the ultimate goal of the organization, their engagement pus motivation is bound to increase. Enabling you to communicate with your teams through the two-way feedback, JOP enables your organization to take employee engagement to a whole new level.
3) Reduction In Resource Wastage
Alignment with the help of PMS software/OKR software helps the organization to clearly distinguish between activities that lead to growth and those that play more of a secondary role. This specific delineation allows the organization to use its limited resources on the most important activities for promoting growth. Identifying and defining goals is a crucial part of establishing a successful business. It also ensures that the functional and business priorities are well aligned.
Through JOP organizations are able to do more with less and reduce their expenditure while simultaneously performing better. With the effective OKR framework, JOP intensifies the focus on “what matters the most.” Through tech-enabled goal achievement and growth-oriented tools, you can easily document all the progress made on the established goals. All this while the tool itself gives you a scheduled reminder for taking the follow-ups on the allotted goals.
4) Dynamic And Resilient Culture
Organizational culture and its growth go hand in hand. It is the culture of the organization that feeds off the decisions taken and the overall success/failure of the organization. If the decisions and energy in the organization are focused, positive, winning, and accountable, then the same message will be quietly reflected and disseminated throughout the organization. In addition to this, an aligned organization ensures to have a culture that is driven by purpose and clear expectations.
An interconnected team, support, and agile collaboration molds an organizational culture in which there’s no limit to achieving success. JOP enables you to have strategic planning and execution on the same screen. The key elements that are responsible for bringing business goals to fruition are clearly visible. Being a holistic framework, JOP allows members to assign ownership, regulate the progress and maintain the context with the help of comment threads. Whether the teams are using the remote or hybrid mode to function, JOP brings everyone on the same page for weekly check-ins. Having such a culture ensures that your organization is moving towards success, no matter what curveballs are thrown it’s way.
