Round-Table: Is Performance Management Dead?

Wednesday 27th February 2019
9.00 am – 11.00 am, London


“Performance Management is not dead. The way of thinking about it is”
Anita Bowness

Is it not time as HR leaders that we look at ways to change the conversation?

Now more than ever we need to drive a culture of continuous feedback, so is it finally time to lose the term ‘Performance Management’ altogether?!

Join us on Wednesday, 27th February, from 9.00 am – 11.00 am at the offices of CAPITA, in London, where we’ll be hosting our next Let’s Talk Talent round-table and debating this topic.

Discussions will be led by Jason Boyle, formerly Global Head of People and HR Director at PA Consulting Group, Astra Zeneca and Talk Talk, and myself.

Topics will include:

  • How do you balance and reward not only what people do but also how they do it without a massive process?
  • Do we need ratings and if so how can we use them more effectively?
  • Should we de-couple reward completely and look at new ways of pay and performance that drive deeper engagement?
  • How do you create a culture of honest, transparent feedback, which is valued by your people?
  • Is there still a management capability gap in our organisations that needs addressing and if so how?
  • Hear some practical ideas about how you might establish the right approach for success
  • Opportunities for sharing of learning, successes and things that have not worked for you to be inspired or avoid

Our Let’s Talk Talent round-table events have been designed to be a platform for HR leaders to meet and discuss both strategic and practical ways to improve productivity and make businesses irresistible for people.

Places are complimentary but strictly limited.
