“April showers bring May flowers.” This common little phrase is used to suggest that May is a period of growth and new life. Today, many organizations are experiencing their own new life with the possibility of returning to the office, adopting a hybrid model, or even finding another version of adapting their current structure to fit the ever-shifting landscape. With this pattern of intra-organizational movement, we wanted our focus for May to be Development Planning. It is more important than ever to invest in our Team Members’ development, and that starts with identifying where the Team Member is today, what their path forward looks like, and how to get there.

Teams rarely are perfect. There are always situations when team members are incompatible, or half the team feels as if it is carrying the weight of the entire team while others feel overlooked and misunderstood. Navigating these dynamics can be challenging for managers.
We are excited to welcome Calvary Church to our growing customer base! In this post, Ron Cooney, Pastor of Adult Discipleship, explains why Truvelop is such an important part of their employee development strategy.
Truvelop offers companies a comprehensive tool to evaluate, monitor and support employee performance. Employees need more from managers than direction. Employees want someone who is interested in developing their potential and inspire them to grow – they need a coach. In this blog, you’ll find a few tips for how managers can optimize the Truvelop app to coach employees.
As managers, we can take advantage of the strong employees, overlooking them and their talents, forgetting to acknowledge their hard work and accomplishments, while juggling our own heavy loads, or attempting to manage underperforming team members. This can be a costly and devastating mistake. High-performing team members need mentorship, encouragement, and praise to feel valued and to realize opportunity for growth. Without it, they may be tempted to seek greater opportunities elsewhere. In this blog, you’ll find a few steps for fostering engagement, mentoring, and acknowledging high-performing team members.
Customer Success Team Member Juliana Withers hosted Truvelop’s User Community Lunch and Learn on Using Truvelop as a Compass for Harkins Coaching Culture. Collaborating with Harkins’ Kathy Humm, Director of Human Resources, and Bonnie Cronin, Employee Experience Manager, the three women defined what a Coaching Culture is, identified the many benefits of a Coaching Culture, and spelled out the different components of Harkins’ successful Coaching Culture. The Lunch and Learn saw a lot of rich discussion between our various customers, making this one of our most engaging Lunch and Learns yet.
While the Truvelop app can provide managers with insights and guidance to support them and their employees, these features are enabled and driven by the data input that creates a comprehensive profile for each employee. In this blog, you’ll find a few suggestions for ways to feed the app effectively.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The CDC estimates depression can cause 200 million lost workdays each year at the cost of $17 billion to $44 billion to employers. Employers who create a culture that recognizes and supports mental health can decrease healthcare costs, increase productivity, and reduce turnover.
At Truvelop, we’re here to help companies improve Manager and Team Member relationships by increasing touchpoints, promoting real time feedback, and focusing on development and upskilling opportunities. One of the many benefits of Truvelop is the messaging our Customer Success team sends out on the 1st and 15th of every month. Meryl Goeke and Juliana Withers share best practices with end-users on various topics and this month, we focused on Team Member development.

As more people are vaccinated and the CDC and local governments lift restrictions, companies are refining their return to the office. While many companies already had telework policies and work-from-home benefits, most businesses were forced to a virtual work environment as mandated by COVID-19 restrictions.
In May we spent a lot of time thinking about Team Member development and how we can help them grow. In June, we’re going to turn the focus onto Team Member Wellbeing. We’ve undergone a lot of change in a short span of time, so it’s important that we check in with our team to see how they are doing.
As always, we would love to hear your ideas and feedback! Please reach out to us at email@example.com to share.
