Article Description:

Creating Strategic Goals for your team is a great way to ensure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same common company goals.

Strategic Goals are the over-arching goals that determine the long-range direction of the company; they are the “What” and “Why”. Trakstar allows you to create Strategic Goals and align them to measurements on an appraisal to ensure all employees are working towards common company goals.

Examples of Strategic Goals:

  • Expand sales to existing customers
  • Increase customer retention
  • Increase sales by 10% annually
