Fixing Performance Management


October 15, 2013

COST: Session is only $50. Though it is mission critical in business to have a process through which employees’ performance can be evaluated, performance management is tricky. Employee pay increases and bonuses generally are based on the results of a performance appraisal, which can lead to employees completely tuning out the coaching and developmental aspects of appraisals, and focusing strictly on their “bottom line”, i.e., overall performance ratings and pay increases. How do we fix this broken process? In this session, we will review some well-defined solution ideas aimed at improving the appraisal process that can increase the acceptance and effectiveness of performance management as a whole. Areas to be covered include the frequency of the performance appraisal process, the level of detail and focus of the appraisals, what impacts employee performance results, and the relation of annual performance reviews with the salary or pay increases.
