Episode Description

Performance Management (PM) began informally around World War 1. By the late-1950s, many companies adopted formal, personality-based PM practices without a self-appraisal component. Complaints arose about their effectiveness. Fast-forward to today. Most organizations are using a PM strategy intended to drive the right behaviors toward a specific outcome, but 80% believe it’s not delivering. Is your PM maximizing or hurting your employees’ productivity? It’s time to examine the good, bad, and ugly of PM, plus improvement strategies you can use now. The experts speak. Dr. Steven Hunt, SuccessFactors: “Sweeping generalizations about certain performance management methods being universally good or bad are almost always wrong.” Josh Bersin, Bersin by Deloitte: “Traditional performance appraisals are dinosaurs.” Pam Seplow, SAP: “Good judgment comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgment” (Will Rodgers). Join us for Performance Management: Are Today’s Practices Working?
