How Impraise supports 1:1s
1:1s on our platform is a dedicated space to collaborate on agendas, follow up on topics, and track conversations for effective meetings. Especially when working with remote teams, Managers and direct-reports need to stay connected more than ever. Both manager and direct-report can leave notes, which will identify smoke signals early and save precious time in bringing everybody up to speed. Keep in mind that these 1:1s don’t need to be overly formal or long.
But they do need to occur regularly to make sure your meaningful dialogue moves forward and stays up-to-date. More importantly, the dialogue needs to continue so remote employees don't become disengaged.
Our teams (fully remote) use the 1:1 Relationships in a (bi)weekly cadence. We have seen that regular 1:1 conversations lead to higher engagement and productivity. For a more extensive step-by-step description, please read our ‘how to set up your 1:1s in Impraise’ help article here.
Don't forget that when it comes to effective remote performance management, communication plays such a big part. Becoming disengaged and misaligned is a real danger when working from a distance and HR leaders such as yourself need to work together with Managers to assure that this doesn't happen.
1:1s are a great way to sustain a healthy ongoing communication flow. They offer the perfect way to check-in with employees not only about work but also about how they're feeling on a regular basis.
