Bersin By Deloitte: Managing Performance in the 21st Century

There is a revolution [or a tsunami] in performance management: a major shift in the way today's organizations are viewing their performance management activities. From a once-a-year event, often seen as purposeless, leading-edge companies are now viewing performance management as an ongoing series of activities, with a greater emphasis on coaching and supporting employees. Our research confirms that high-impact performance management is about much more than an end of year assessment and evaluation – it is about supporting performance on an ongoing basis.[1] This change in performance management practices affects the technology solutions that underpin those activities. Rather than “one and done” forms and their submittal processes, today's technologies are supporting ongoing conversations and continuous coaching, anytime feedback from peers and management, and the standard articulation of goals and objectives. This web seminar will discuss features in technology solutions that support the performance management revolution and provide examples of companies that have abandoned the once-a-year model within the context of the rapidly evolving – some would say even revolutionizing – performance management practices of today.
