KPIs are no longer enough: why your business needs KPPI’s

A new frontier in business metrics

What are KPPIs?

In the fast-paced world of business, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) have long been the gold standard for measuring success and driving growth. However, as we evolve towards a more holistic understanding of human performance, it’s time to recognise that KPIs are no longer sufficient. Enter Key Personal Performance Indicators (KPPIs.) KPPIs capture personalised bio data such as breath rate, heart rate variability, glucose levels, and sleep patterns, unlocking the potential for optimal performance and output from your team. 

Why KPPIs matter

While KPIs provide valuable insights into business metrics, such as sales, revenue, and customer satisfaction, they fail to account for a critical factor – the well-being and physiology of the individuals driving those numbers. KPPIs bridge this gap by capturing personal health data, enabling you to understand and optimize your team’s performance on a deeper level. These indicators not only shed light on an individual’s well-being but also directly impact their cognitive abilities, productivity, and overall performance. By monitoring KPPIs, you can proactively address areas of improvement and foster a workplace culture that prioritises employee health and well-being.

The race car and the driver

Just as a Formula 1 team relies on real-time data to optimise their race strategy, business owners need to leverage the power of real time KPPIs to gain a competitive edge in today’s dynamic landscape. Envision your business as a high-performance sports car and your employees as the drivers. KPIs act as the dashboard gauges, providing essential information on speed, fuel levels, and engine performance. They keep your business on track and help you make informed decisions.

However, without considering the condition of the driver you risk pushing your business to its limits without fully understanding the potential consequences. KPPIs serve as vital indicators of the driver’s health and readiness to compete, allowing you to optimize their performance and intervene before small issues become major setbacks.

Health tech is everyone’s business

Implementing KPPIs is not limited to the realm of healthcare or well-being alone. In today’s rapidly advancing world, health technology has become a fundamental aspect of every business. The health of your people determines the health of your business. By leveraging the power of wearable devices and health-tracking apps, you can seamlessly integrate KPPI monitoring into your business strategy. This data-driven approach not only benefits individual employees but also drives overall business success. A healthier, more engaged workforce, results in increased productivity, reduced absenteeism, and improved job fulfilment.

For instance, tracking breath rate can reveal signs of stress and help you proactively implement measures to support your team’s mental well-being. Monitoring heart rate variability can indicate whether an employee is fatigued or energised, allowing you to optimise their workload or encourage healthy breaks. Glucose levels and sleep data provide insights into an individual’s energy levels and recovery, enabling you to foster a culture of wellness and ensure your team operates at their peak.

Join the new frontier

As the business landscape continues to evolve, it’s time to embrace a more comprehensive approach to performance measurement. While KPIs remain essential, incorporating KPPIs enables you to harness the full potential of your team. By prioritising personal health data, you foster a workplace culture that supports optimal performance and attracts top talent. Remember, it’s not just about how fast your business can go but also about ensuring your drivers are in peak condition to cross the finish line successfully.

KPPIs offer a new frontier in performance tracking, capturing the crucial human data that significantly influences business outcomes. Just as a race car requires a skilled driver and a well-maintained engine to reach its full potential, your business needs both KPIs and KPPIs to thrive. By incorporating KPPIs alongside traditional KPIs, you foster employee well-being, productivity, and organisational success. Embrace this holistic approach, leverage health tech, and get ahead in today’s competitive business world.
