While this process has been written about and discussed extensively, we believe that when done correctly, tailored to the organization's needs, with the right process and systems, it makes a significant difference.
Performance management is a crucial process that helps organizations foster continuous improvement, efficiency, and growth by aligning individual goals with organization objectives.
As an organizational consultant, I offer a specialized service that assists HR and OD managers in building a tailored performance management process to drive development and achieve organizational goals effectively.
In this post, we will explore the concept of performance management and the benefits, when implemented right, that it brings to employees, managers, and organizations as a whole.
So, what is Performance Management?
Performance management is a systematic approach that involves defining clear goals, evaluating employee performance, providing feedback and feed forward, and guiding professional and personal development.
It aims to ensure that employees' efforts and accomplishments align with the organization's strategic objectives.
The process usually includes the following steps. All can be supported with different systems and AI apps or add-ons for effective use of the process:
Goal Setting: Have you heard the saying we do as we are measured?
our goals should represent ourselves and the organization's mission and vision.
Performance Monitoring: Regularly tracking and assessing employees' progress towards their goals, identifying achievements, and addressing challenges.
Feedback, Feed Forward and Coaching: Providing timely and constructive feedback to help employees understand their strengths and areas for improvement. Coaching sessions can further support their development.
Performance Appraisal: Conducting formal performance evaluations to assess individual contributions, recognize accomplishments, and plan for growth.
Most of the time, the entire process involves organizational calibration, a discussion of values and organizational influencers.
