    Join the Rebellion:
    Performance Management that Works

    Performance Reviews, you have failed us for the last time. It's time to jettison what doesn't work and forge a new path to unleashing your employees' potential. Join us for a discussion about performance management that works, and tips on putting performance-based pay into practice.

    Learning Objectives: Gain awareness of the overwhelming evidence that traditional performance reviews are rarely effective, and the science behind it. Gain an understanding of what does work to engage employees and supporting them to perform at their potential, with a particular emphasis on the employee-supervisor relationship and improving two-way communications around goals, course corrections, support needs, professional development, and effective teamwork. Learn specific tactics for managers and HR to employ to develop a healthy, engaged, performance-focused culture.
