HR experts have been forecasting the demise of the annual review and other traditional performance management processes for years, and now the shift towards a more personalized approach is quickly gaining momentum. In fact, the 2015 Deloitte Human Capital Trends report states that 89% of respondents recently changed or plan to change their performance management process within 18 months — but to what? Early adopters of modern approaches, including Deloitte, Workday, PwC, and VMware, will explore the next generation of performance management, outlining why we should move from “managing” performance to enabling it. They’ll share perspectives on what HR leaders can do to strategically accelerate and enable performance for greater productivity and employee engagement. You’ll learn how technology can be used to support employees and career development in a way that will meet the evolving needs of the workforce of the future.
