Unchecking the Box: Performance Management Reloaded

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will help you identify strategies that you can implement in your organization to improve the effectiveness and perception of the performance management process.

Managers and employees agree that most performance management processes have become check-the-box exercises. Although both groups typically understand the value in having performance discussions on a regular basis, many people perceive the actual process to be ineffective. As a result, organizations are seeking innovative ways to improve performance management. This session will highlight and evaluate some of these efforts, from increasing the frequency of performance discussions to replacing ratings with adjectives to eliminating the process altogether. During this session, you will:

·         Discuss why performance management is often perceived as rote and ineffective.

·         Identify innovative performance management strategies that can make the process more valuable.

·         Evaluate the potential success of each of these strategies in creating a more effective performance management
           process at your organization.

·         Determine the possibility of using in-time performance-driven discussions instead of traditional
           performance management processes.
