It’s officially June and there’s already something to celebrate as the nation kicks off Pride Month. As millions of individuals and allies celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, workplaces are looking for ways to support their employees. From legislative wins to employee resource groups, we’ve come a long way in enabling individuals to bring their authentic selves at work—but there’s still a long way to go.
As HR professionals who closely follow performance management trends, one of the biggest questions is: “What comes first when deciding on the right performance management approach for my company? Is it the practice (i.e. what to do), or the tool (i.e. how to do it)?
Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a wide variety of answers. Most of us are still in the process of determining the best solution for our company, with its particular culture and talent pool.
Let’s be honest: The performance review has gotten a bad rap. Not only do employees dread the process, managers often feel the time can simply be better spent doing something else. Unfortunately, while the performance review process is intended to be helpful to everyone, several companies are simply doing away with them.
Let’s face it, performance reviews have earned themselves a bad reputation.
Many employees dread their annual performance review, and most managers view these reports as just another task on their to-do list.
The field of human resources is changing. In our HR Redefined series, we give innovators a medium to share personal reflections, professional advice, and best practice guidance.
A company is only as good as the talent behind it. Consistently and accurately evaluating and measuring employee performance is essential not only to individual success, but also to the overall success of an organization.
Employees are the heart of your company—they help shape your culture, drive innovation, and contribute to the business’ overall success.
