IntroductionSuccessful management of any organization requires effective performance management. Proper employee management is disciplined approaches that bolsters and meliorate a business organization’s objectives into the staff and down to specific employees. It is then followed by patterned reviewing to enhance necessary changes that are expected to be adopted by the employees. The process of managing employees to help the organization meet set goals is a continuous exercise. Dr. Allen TX explains that this process entails making an effort to make align the performance of employees to contribute to the success of the team that will translate to the overall success of the company goals (Allen 423).
It is a fact that continuous improvement of individual employees automatically results in the improved success of the organization. Modern work activities take a lot of people’s time. Therefore employees spend more time at their work places. Employees always strive to make a difference by positively contributing to the success of their organization. To meet their goals, employees have to work as a team by having shared goals with clearly stipulated targets. The company can only achieve this by managing the employees effectively after laying down objectives and aims.
The management of the organization needs to formally set up the frequency and procedures of managing employees to achieve success as far as Bergman is concerned (Bergman 409). The general standards of enhancing performance include setting company objectives where the company establishes what has to be achieved and the duration it should take to accomplish the same. This should be followed by the necessary training and development. The management has to make sure that the employees have the right skills for the duties allocated to them.
Companies in this case ought to provide support to the staff where it is needed. The journal on high performance work practices illustrates that management of employees to achieve success is a continuous process hence progressive review of how the employees perform becomes essential at this stage (A High Performance Work Practices Taxonomy. Para 5). This paper analyses what proper management of employee means to the success of the company. By reviewing journals and articles of scholars who have researched in this field, it looks at the theories that are related to managing people as well as the benefits that accrue to the company when it manages its employees well.
The scholars who present differing opinion on the importance of managing people to help in meeting goals are also considered. Theories of employee managementScholars have dedicated a lot of their time to study on the relevance of effective employee management to realize company goals. However, Douglas McGregor is mentioned by Atkinson Hall to have contributed a lot to this by postulating the XY theory (Atkinson 661).
William Ouchi also introduced Theory Z. An American psychologist Douglas McGregor proposed the X-Y theory that is very famous in the management and motivation of employees. According to Azmat Fara, it gives a form of management that draws a lot of positivism (Azmat 81). When properly applied, the theory becomes fundamental to organizational growth while at the same time enhancing the performance culture in the organization. According to McGregor, the management that uses theory X is destined to get poor results while the more aggressive and responsible managers who are inclined towards success will always apply theory Y.
The latter allows the employees to grow and develop. Their growth is a direct recipe for the growth of the organization. The failures of theory X relate to its authoritarian style of leadership. It is characterised by people resenting work and will look for any slight opportunity to either avoid or abscond it. The inducement for people to work comes from threats. The employees develop a culture of being directed to avoid work.
