Modernize the Performance Appraisal

Bring performance management out of the dark ages to improve employee performance and engagement, and reduce costs for the business.

Onsite Workshop

Without changing to a modern performance appraisal from a traditional one, organizations:

  • Are not helping employees understand how to improve performance.
  • Continue to give backward-looking feedback.
  • Create a disconnect with employees, resulting in disengagement and turnover.

By implementing a modern performance appraisal, organizations:

  • Provide more accurate, motivating ratings that include employee self-assessment.
  • Review both backward and forward looking feedback.
  • Reduce the feeling of stress in employees from unclear expectations.
