Resources Webinars How to Deliver an Employee-Centric Performance Management Program


How to Deliver an Employee-Centric Performance Management Program

Do you hear that? It's the moans and groans of your employees, managers and even your fellow HR peers as your organization looks to embark on, is in the midst of, or are just wrapping up another annual performance review. Whether you are relying strictly on once-per-year goal setting and review activities, have switched to ongoing performance conversations, or fall somewhere in between—we all know there is always room for improvement when it comes to performance management.

But how can you truly revitalize the performance management process when it is such a core element of people programs? It starts with thinking outside of the calendar year and putting the employee at the center of the process.

Join us for this webinar featuring Jamie Resker, Practice Leader and Founder of Employee Performance Solutions, and Anita Bowness, Principal Product Manager, Customer Success with Saba Software for a conversation around how you can elevate your organization's goal setting and performance coaching practices to create more meaningful experiences for your employees that drive real business results.

You'll gain insights into...

  • Best practices for implementing performance management and goal setting processes that align, engage and inspire your people
  • How to use ongoing check-in conversations to monitor goal progress, ensure performance excellence, and capture performance data all year long
  • Why incorporating coaching, feedback and development during 1:1s is crucial for accelerating goal achievement and performance outcomes
  • How to use technology to scale a personalized, just-for-me employee experience

Watch this webinar about how to scrap the linear performance management mindset and instead put employees at the heart of a continuous coaching and development program!
