Accurate Ratings and Other Rare Creatures: Effective Use of Performance Management Tech
Thursday 06 October
04:00 PM – 05:00 PM
The words “performance management” and “valuable” rarely appear in the same sentence. But some companies have figured it out. Three senior HR leaders will share examples of how their companies have effectively used performance management technology to drive value for their businesses. These companies have developed solutions to recognize that all employees are valuable — some more than others — by including practices that accurately rate and reward top performing employees without making others feel unimportant or unfairly treated. You’ll hear how they use technology to differentiate and reward high performing employees in a manner that has increased employee engagement across their entire workforce. Plus, you’ll learn why methods that work in one organization might fail in another, how they enlisted support of business operations leaders, what training and change management was required to make their solutions work, and the lessons they’ve learned.
