This week the discussion focuses on performance management. I hope to share the 5 stories/blogs that show performance management is an essential tool that is relevant at all levels in all organisations.  Generally speaking, it provides a means to improve organisational performance by linking and aligning individual, team and organisational objectives and results and provides a means to recognise and reward good performance and to manage under performance.

Quote of the Week– “The man who starts out going nowhere, generally gets there”- Dale Carnegie author and pioneer in self-improvement and interpersonal skills.

#1 Appraisals v Performance Management, PeopleStreme

Most organisations have some type of employee appraisal or review system and are experiencing the shortcomings of manual Appraisal systems. In talking about Employee Performance Management, the question we are asked most often is “what is the difference between Appraisal systems and Performance Management”

They don’t work and they cause more harm than good.

#4 10 key elements in creating a high performance culture, Torben Rick

This context includes the culture of the company – how things get done, how decisions get made, what works and does not work as far …

#5 How You Communicate Performance Is as Important as When and Why, TLNT

It’s annual performance review time for a lot of organizations right now.  This is a frequent topic of conversation within Globoforce as we strongly believe the annual review presents only a fragment of the picture of employee performance told from the point of view of one person. The rest of the story must be told by the people who interact every day with the person being reviewed – their colleagues and peers.
