We can configure your Appraisd account to allow objectives to be connected together in a cascading (top down) or contributing (bottom up or sideways) approach.
Why connect objectives together?
Most of our work contributes in one way or another to a larger objective, perhaps a team or company objective. Helping employees link contributing objectives to larger objective often has a number of benefits:
- It shows employees that their work is valuable and will help to achieve your organisation's aims.
- It helps senior leaders see who is contributing to which objectives, and how.
- When used in Appraisd, it enables communication and a stronger sense of progress
- Contributing objectives are an important aspect of modern frameworks such as OKRs and V2MOMs.
How do contributing objectives work in Appraisd?
For example, take this Team objective added by Nicky:
Notice that this objective has been made visible to Everyone.
Now, when another employee find Nicky's profile and clicks on this objective, they can choose to 'contribute' to it:
In this example, the account has been configured to allow employees to contribute their own Team objective, or they can connect a personal objective to 's objective.
Once people start adding contributing objectives, Nicky's objective is updated in Appraisd as seen below:
And on the objective popup, you can see a list of all the contributing objectives:
Note that you can click on a contributing objective to open it in a new popup. In this way you can navigate across all linked objectives to understand who's contributing to what, and how.
