From a sometimes-dreaded process into really useful, powerful people development
This could be the most significant process in your business. It touches every employee and the work they do, and every manager and their communication with their team. This is a high impact opportunity…but instead….has it become an HR ‘tick in the box’ administrative activity? It doesn’t have to be that way.
A value-adding, engaging process…you can do this
Your performance reviews should accomplish much more than assess work, if you want it to add value to managers and employees and help create results. Clear and empowering communication with managers and their teams. Really useful feedback. Collaborative and positive work relationships. These elements culminate in powerful development for every employee, allowing them to bring their best and feel engaged at work.
Our approach is distinguished by our long-time strategic development experience – we take a whole view and help you create a connected, clear and simple process.
- Process and format – value-adding performance reviews comes from good, straightforward process that connects important activities in your business. Developing goals, defining priorities, reviewing progress, continuous improvement, developing skills and behavior and supporting core values. The aim is to bring these together concisely, as a useful tool for the employee and manager.
- Manager skill set and mindset – Most managers, while talented in their daily work, lack some of the specific skills for create useful performance reviews. They have little time to practice, use out-dated approaches or never receiving training in the first place. We help cut through the mixed messages and apply evidence-based skills focused on goal setting, feedback, relationship and growth mindset.
- Connect to technology – Moving from paper to an on-line tool….or from one tool to another? Ensure your performance review approach comes to life – as you and your company want it – fit for purpose. Roll-out training and communication that includes manager skills, to complement technology how-to’s. As part of the tech implementation project, we help our clients achieve this and deliver ROI.
