Performance Management: We Won’t Fix the Problem by Ignoring It

Performance Management: We Won’t Fix the Problem by Ignoring It | The new world of work | Scoop.it

To meet this goal, a performance management system must provide some way to determine how employees are performing relative to their co-workers. Yet there is currently a trend in HR to “fix” performance management by eliminating the use of methods that compare employees based on performance.

 

This makes no sense since this is the very thing senior business leaders want from performance management!

 

The 2 performance management methods:

Ian Berry's insight:

Performance management like people management is dead. The question to ask of all performance systems Does our system inspire and make it simple for people to bring their best to their work? Any answer other than a resounding yes means system must be improved.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, August 5, 2014 7:49 PM

When I ask business leaders in large companies what they want from performance management systems, the answer usually includes “identify the top performers in the company.”

Graeme Reid's curator insight, August 5, 2014 8:29 PM

If we want to fix performance management, we must create methods that accurately classify employees based on past performance in a way that maximizes their future performance and retention.  Rating employees to fit a bell-curve distribution is nonsensical, but identifying your top 10% of performers makes a lot of sense.

Ian Berry's insight:

Surveys of any kind are only important when the results of them are transparently shared, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and then acted on. And no survey will ever replace the candid, authentic conversations we have with people every day. We are no longer in the information age. What we really want is insight that becomes inspiration that becomes ideas that get implemented that change what's normal (innovation) when the status quo no longer serves.

What Millennials Want from Work, Charted Across the World

What Millennials Want from Work, Charted Across the World | The new world of work | Scoop.it

As more Millennials assume leadership positions around the world, organizations are becoming increasingly concerned with how to ensure their success. However, most existing research on those born between the early ‘80s and late ‘90s is skewed toward understanding what a narrow, typically Western, population wants. Conclusions based on such a limited sample could lead to bad decisions (and missed opportunities) around attracting, retaining, and developing millennial leaders in a global business environment.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, February 24, 6:45 AM

To broaden our understanding of what Millennials want at work, INSEAD’s Emerging Markets Institute, Universum, and the HEAD Foundation conducted the first of what will become an annual survey of Millennials — and the largest study of its kind. We surveyed 16,637 people between 18 and 30 years old, in 43 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and North America.


The data was collected from May to August 2014, and the results are presented in “Millennials: Understanding a Misunderstood Generation.
