Setting employee expectations

A recent study reveals that almost half of all U.S. employees are unsure of what's expected of them.

Setting clear employee expectations can benefit your business. Management must communicate their expectations verbally and in writing. This can reduce or eliminate confusion and increase the levels of success.

Team expectations

Team expectations refer to the behaviors that occur while working together on tasks. 

  • Respect and courtesy to everyone.
  • Be accountable for your work.
  • Be reasonably flexible about task assignments.
  • Be willing to lend a helping hand.
  • Ask for help when needed.
  • Work safely together.
  • Be open to constructive feedback.
  • Be self-motivated and reliable.
  • Share ideas for improvement.
  • Be cheerful, positive and encouraging to other team members.

Performance expectations

Performance expectations should be measured by the company and communicated by management in order to move toward a specific company goal. 

For each new person joining, set specific and clear employee and performance expectations to encourage accountability.
