Similar to how you can analyse the performance of your employees on the basis of how well they’re aligned with the company objectives, you can also evaluate the effectiveness of the 1:1 conversations your employees are having. And you can do so for both managers and their direct reports. This is where you get to understand the impact of 1:1 on your employees.
If you’ve been using Mesh from some time, you’ll know that the first step to analysing the behaviour of your employees on Mesh is selecting a cohort.
Next, there are two types of views available under 1:1 Insights.
- View by Manager
- View by Individual
While both the views will be accessible to both admins and managers, the manager view will be restricted for managers to show the details about their 1:1s only. It will not include the data on any other managers from the company.
View By Manager
The "Group by Manager" view is primarily helpful for admins to understand the overall effectiveness of the 1:1s. Precisely, it clears the air around,
- How consistently managers are having their 1:1s
- Are the 1:1s leading to effective outcomes
- How are they being rated by their direct reports
Following is how the homepage of 1:1 Insights look like.
Let's now look at what all information can you receive from this view.
- The number of managers who have completed between x% - y% of 1:1s, depicted by the bar graph on the left corner of the screen. Furthermore, admins can then look at the table below to check the precise 1:1 completion % of every manager. Companies that practice 1:1s mostly have a defined periodic cadence for the managers to conduct it with their direct reports. Hence, it'll be helpful for admins to understand which managers are not following the stipulated schedule.
- Along similar lines, another data point that admins will also receive is on the top and bottom 3 managers who have been the most active in conducting 1:1s. And this data will be based on the time gap between two successive 1:1s for each of them, within a given duration.
- And finally, the number of direct reports for each of the manager.
On the 1:1 Meetings
- The aggregate 1:1 score of each manager, based cumulatively on the individual scores given by their direct reports during the 1:1s. This is captured in the form of star rating with a range of 1 - 5 stars.
- The aggregate mood score that the managers have to update after the completion of every 1:1.
- The average number of action items that every manager has asked each of their team members to work upon.
- The average number of meeting notes taken by every team member under the guidance of every manager during their 1:1s.
You can also expand on every manager to check the individual performance of their team members.
View By Individual
There's not much change in the data managers get to see under the individual view. The only change is that in place of looking at the data from the manager's point of view, the data now available will be from the individual team member's point of view.
For example, in place of the most active managers to conduct their 1:1s, the individual view will highlight the most active team members to have been participating in the 1:1s.
