Synopses of the first research study by PPAM practice
Our research in BFSI and the Service industry reveal that more than 60% of the workforce in any organization is FLEM Workforce. These are foot soldiers who deliver and work in repetitive roles in sales, customer service, retail, and operations. The FLEM workforce is of four types – On Roll, Outsourced Rolls (temp staffing), and Off-Rolls (work with partners like sales distributors,) and Gig workers
Authors start with a huge claim – our Performance Management System (PMS) for Front Line Executives and Managers (FLEM workforce) which most employers use to measure, reward and counsel the workforce on performance, has failed miserably and is outdated.
How do we know that? Two data points – high infant attrition, and low average productivity are well known. But a third new data point nail’s this – the multiple of performance achievement between the top and bottom band performers in any cohort, in the same role, in the same company, with the same vintage, at the same time, is in excess of 10X.
In one real-life case study conducted in 2022 on a cohort of 3200 FLEM sales force across India for one of India’s largest Non-Banking Financial Companies ( NBFC), conducted by authors the following were discovered
- 60% of the FLEM workforce delivered 13 % of the cohort output, measured over an extended period
- Despite this anomaly, surprisingly performers’ attrition was far lower than non-performers attrition
- Performance measured on “calendar- months “showed a different performance picture than performance on “residency – months”.
Authors’ studies with six companies confirm that the variation of performance within similar FLEM cohorts is high and the purpose of Performance consulting is to reduce this performance gap. This research paper proposes an alternative People Performance Management system (PPMS) that uses a more diversified measurement of outcome plus output and a framework that is data derived.
The authors recommend a new approach to Accelerate People Performance of FLEM employees through two new data-centric models.
- A new model for People Performance Measurement and Analytics
- Role modeling for role mastery.
