Have you been hearing about the trend for companies to DRASTICALLY change their performance management processes?  Whether you use the word SCRAP or RE-ENGINEER, there are more and more companies who have decided to do away with traditional performance ratings and dramatically change their annual appraisal process.
What do you know about this trend?  What do you think about this trend?
Join us for an interactive LIVELY discussion about this topic.  Your facilitator, Rena Somersan, Principal of Compensation Consulting at Verisight, Inc., will provide handouts, knowledge of trending practices, share a summary of how some organizations are going about this, and then facilitate conversation from the group on pros and cons as well as opportunities and threats posed by this change…
This discussion is not for the faint-of-heart ~ come prepared to think, challenge, question and debate!  As a result of this program you will be able to respond when someone from your leadership team tosses one of the Wall Street Journal or Harvard Business Review articles on your desk and says “I think we need to do this!”

Learning Objectives:

  • Articulate what several Fortune 500 companies are doing to “reboot” their performance management processes
  • Understand what a small organization might do to employ some of these tactics.
  • Be able to pinpoint the rationale for what you expect out of a performance management system.
