We all understand the theoretical benefits of performance management - the way it lies at the centre of learning, reward, career management etc, and also acts as the basis for increasing the performance of the business. The fact is, however that it hardly ever acts like this.
If there was one process in HR, or even across the whole of business, that most organisations would agree is broken, it would surely be employee performance management. Nothing else we do turns both managers and employees off so much or results in so much wasted time (mainly through poor application and ineffectual conversations, but often not helped by bureaucratically heavy designs).
Yet it should not be like this. Employee performance management should be an absolutely critical business process or approach – providing the main mechanism an organisation has for ensuring that work is performed and objectives are achieved effectively.
But after 30 years of trying, we can't go on making incremental improvements that do little to reduce frustration or increase impact on business performance. It's time to seriously transform. Or maybe just to trash!
The good news is that there are things that can be done to make a major difference here. In particular, new insights from business and psychological research, new ways of thinking and new technologies provide some new and significant opportunities for improvement.
Attend this workshop to understand how performance management can be ‘enhanced’ - perhaps better phrased as ‘re-engineered’ - to have a true and significant impact on business performance.
