Death by a Thousand Paper Cuts: It’s Time for a Modern Approach to Employee Performance

Wednesday 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Session Description

Performance reviews aren’t engaging. Everyone hates them. Yet, you’ll probably inflict another round on your employees. Again. Why do we tolerate the status quo? What if we didn’t have to?

Engagement drives performance. But, you’ll never get engagement from a disengaging process. It’s no surprise that performance reviews fail their primary objective: to improve performance.

This session explores why we’ve failed to innovate – for far too long. We analyze excuses for sticking with the status quo and offer solutions for each. We present a transition plan for how to efficiently leverage continuous employee feedback in accountable, engaging and strategic ways.
