Re-engineering and Revolutionising Performance Management
We all understand the theoretical benefits of performance management – the way it lies at the centre of learning, rewards, career management etc, and also acts as the basis for improving the performance of the business. The fact, however, is that it hardly ever acts as it’s supposed to.
If there is one process in HR or even across the whole of business that most organisations would agree is broken, it would surely be employee performance management. Nothing else we do turns both managers and employees off so much, or results in so much wasted time (mainly through poor application and ineffectual conversations, but often not helped by bureaucratically heavy designs).
Yet it should not be like this. Employee performance management should be an absolutely critical business process or approach. It should provide the main mechanism that an organisation needs to ensure that work is performed and objectives are achieved effectively.
But after 30 years of trying, we cannot go on making incremental improvements that do little to reduce frustration or increase impact on business performance. It’s time to either seriously transform or just trash it!
The good news is that there are things that can be done to make a major difference here. New insights from business and psychological research, new ways of thinking, and new technologies provide some new and significant opportunities for improvement.
Attend blended learning course to understand how performance management can be ‘enhanced’ – or perhaps better phrased as ‘re-engineered’ – to have a true and significant impact on business performance.
Our new blended learning format
We know that you have concerns about attending face-to-face workshops in the middle of the COVID-19 outbreak right now. At Human Resources Online, we are also closely monitoring the situation and have developed a brand new format for the course based on your needs.
This course consists of:
Guided tasks and assignments
Face-to-face classroom training
2 x half day webinars: Conducted over two weekday mornings (9 & 16 June 9.30am-12.30pm), this is to ensure that you can continue to learn and develop amidst the uncertainty of the Covid-19 outbreak. We encourage you to attend the live webinars whenever possible, but recorded webinars will be provided to participants for a limited time to allow participants who missed the live webinars to catch up with the coursework. There will be a 20-minute break allocated for each webinar session.
Tasks and assignments: This is to ensure continuity between the online and offline sessions and to provide you with the opportunity to receive more guidance from the trainer. To facilitate continuous discussions and feedback on assignments, the trainer and participants will be looped into a Google Group (or a suitable equivalent).
One-day workshop: This is to give you the opportunity for interactivity, networking and hands-on learning. The one-day workshop (27 July) will be held as planned if the virus situation is more controlled by July. If the situation has not improved, we will deliver the content for this online and increase the number of online activities so as to not compromise your health and safety.
