What is KPI ? Going into more detail

Commitment, satisfaction, trust or communication, among others, would be the key ingredients for any happy relationship. As well as the relationship with our company, the environment in which we spent much of our time, is not any different.

If a relationship is healthy, it has a positive impact in a multitude of ways and brings us happiness. Similarly, if a relationship is harmful, we will be resentful, stressed, cranky … Similarly, the relationship we have with our company affects both parties.

Thus, if a company has a healthy relationship with its employees, this will result in more positive and satisfactory relationships with customers, since the worker will be more involved. Relationships will yield more loyalty, and in a high percentage of cases, more income.

Since for a relationship to be healthy and satisfying (including the one we have with our company), it must be based on all the terms that are beneficial and positive: trust, loyalty, communication … Abstract? Yes. Subjectives? As well. But we have good news. In the professional environment these concepts can be measured and controlled.
