Reinventing Performance Management 

How to move from annual performance reviews and ratings to continuous performance management.

HR Program

The pressure is on for HR to introduce new thinking on a practice long overdue for a change.   Performance management should and can drive performance and business results.  HR is poised to create a system that engages everyone, boosts organizational results and creates a strategic advantage.  Your goal in 2019 should be to fix performance management, regardless of your industry, geographical location or size.  This requires a new way of thinking — an approach that can be presented and socialized as a convincing case for phasing-out performance appraisals while actually improving employee and organizational performance. Spend a day with Jamie Resker, and you'll learn how to implement the changes you want to see.

This session is ideal for intact human resources and leadership teams working to reinvent performance management.  

This program will provide everything you’ll need to be a proactive catalyst of a process that works smarter, is more efficient and easy to use, and benefits the entire organization. Walk away with new thinking, tools, and a personalized change management plan to remake and re-brand managing employee performance, taking it from a drain on morale and productivity to a strategic advantage for your organization. 


how to transition away from traditional performance management 

  • Understand why reviews and ratings don't work

    Explore the reasons behind why the continual redesign of legacy processes such as ratings, annual reviews, and competency models, appraisal as legal documentation, and pay for performance, continue to fall short of expectations.  One positive about the pandemic is the need for more frequent check-ins, so there's no better time to move away from cumbersome processes like performance evaluations.
  • Tailor the program to your organization's needs

    Assess your organization’s current practices, unique circumstances, and readiness for change. Create a personalized strategy that identifies target objectives and an action plan specific to the changes you want to see in your organization

  • Create a business case for change

    Clearly frame employee performance as a business imperative — understand and make the connection for others that the performance effectiveness of each employee makes a difference in organizational performance.
