How to plan for Employee Accountability
How to plan for Employee Accountability: Planning typically includes use of the following basic terms:
Goals are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, in order to achieve some larger, overall result, preferred from the system. For example, the mission of an organization.
Objectives are specific accomplishments that must be accomplished in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals in the plan. Objectives are usually ‘milestones’ along the way when implementing the strategies.
Strategies Or Activities
These are the methods or processes required in total, or in some combination, to achieve the goals.
Particularly in small organizations, people are assigned various tasks required to implement the plan. If the scope of the plan is very small, tasks and activities are often essentially the same.
Resources (and Budgets)
Resources include the people, materials, technologies, money, etc., required to implement the strategies or processes. The costs of these resources are often depicted in the form of a budget.

- Set clear expectations: Clearly communicate expectations and goals to employees, and ensure that they understand what is expected of them.
- Provide support and resources: Ensure that employees have the resources and support they need to meet expectations, such as training, tools, and guidance.
- Encourage open communication: Foster a culture of open communication, where employees feel comfortable sharing their thoughts, concerns, and feedback.
- Recognize and reward accountability: Recognize and reward employees who demonstrate accountability, and hold employees accountable for meeting expectations and goals.
- Lead by example: Lead by example and model accountability in your own behavior and actions.
