Presentation Description

The goal is to improve performance in our organizations, but are performance appraisals helping us get there?

During this interactive workshop, Marilyn Westmas and Steve King will dive into the performance management research, highlight the evidence that has been collected (hint:  it’s overwhelmingly against the effectiveness of performance appraisals!) and facilitate a discussion about what we, as training and OD professionals, can do about it.  

Many of us are “stuck” with systems and processes that we didn’t create and wouldn’t have created, but that doesn’t mean we can’t forge ahead into the land of effective performance.   Together, we’ll explore some options, and as participants, you’ll walk away with some new and practical ideas to help achieve your organization’s performance goals.
