How to Modernize Performance Management (Without Ditching Annual Reviews)

Program Overview:

The workplace has changed to be more collaborative, social and fast moving.  So, shouldn't your performance management (PM) process change too?  Organizations of all sizes and industries are taking a hard look at PM and testing new ideas. 

Find out how to make a fundamental shift to streamline your system by reducing complex low-value activities,  and adopting practices that lead to continuous performance management with measurable results.   

This hands-on workshop is for HR professionals looking for proven strategies to influence change in their organizations and tools they can use to effect a PM system that empowers employees and managers to succeed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the reasons behind why the continual redesign of legacy processes such as ratings and review forms continue falling short of expectations.
  • Alternatives to managing pay and performance without performance appraisals and ratings.
  • Alternatives to the five-category rating scale that will differentiate employee performance levels.
  • Reshape and strengthen manager and employee communications with more frequent forward-looking dialogue [versus reviewing past performance].
  • Acquire proven communication strategies designed to socialize alternatives to performance appraisal, involve your change sponsors, and influence change resisters.

Participants will each receive a 40-page planning workbook—tangible, practical resources and tools they can take back to their organization and share with decision-makers and peers.
