Most HR professionals look forward to conducting annual performance reviews about as much as a trip to the dentist, and most employees aren't sold on the concept either. In fact, 55 percent of employees don't think performance reviews are the least bit accurate. So does that mean reviews are a thing of the past? Not necessarily.
As the economy improves, a solid strategy for feedback that is mutually beneficial to both you and your employees is still going to be the key to talent retention, a positive work environment, and the overall growth and productivity of your organization, especially when you're managing employees from multiple generations.
A performance management plan can not only let your employees know how they're doing, but are also a way to get feedback about how your organization is doing, if your employees are committed to your goals, what compensation expectations are, and what you can do to improve morale.
A performance appraisal process is crucial to your communication strategy, but it needs to be done continually – not just once a year. As more jobs become available and the importance of employee engagement becomes vital to keep your best employees around, the yearly review will evolve into a comprehensive framework for ongoing feedback between you and your employees that will keep your organization productive and moving forward.
Participate in this interactive, extended webinar, and you'll learn:
- The difference between performance management and performance appraisals
- What employees want from performance management
- Strategies to effectively communicate rewards across multiple generations
- The importance of performance management to incentive plans
- Ways to "pay for performance" when funds are limited
- The manager's greatest tool to motivate stellar performance
- And much, much more
