Developing High-Performers through Performance Improvement

Are your employees performing at their best? How well is your performance management system working for you?  Your performance management system is more than just performance appraisals. But confusion around that distinction is one of the reasons organizations get frustrated about how to manage people.  The yearly appraisal process, no matter how well designed, is not enough to ensure that employees perform optimally. A performance management system needs to support and encourage the right behaviours from both the manager and employee throughout the year. In this interactive session, you will learn about performance management best practices, diagnose your own organization’s processes, and develop specific strategies and best practices to take performance management to the next level.

Learning objectives:

  • Review current performance management trends, strategies, and best practices
  • Identify methods to improve your organization’s approach to building high-performing talent through performance management
  • Determine how to make a compelling business case to the C-Suite and/or senior management to improve your organization’s current performance management process and practices

Who should attend?

  • HR professionals of all levels, people leaders or anyone involved in their organization’s performance management process.
