This Episode: Hybrid People – Performance Management Strategies

With the new world of hybrid working has come a greater need for ways in which to manage our people both inside and outside of the workplace. In this episode, Lucinda shares some of the strategies that can help you to make the most of the hybrid world, and what good people performance management should look like.

Key Takeaways

  • There seems to be a prevailing mind-set that simply because someone is in the office that they are working effectively, and that people working remotely are not.
  • Many managers lack the skill to agree output-based objectives, or lack the confidence to manage people effectively against them, and in some cases, the inclination to do so.
  • Pre-pandemic, targets were mainly financially driven, setting directions and running after them. It was mainly task focussed. During the pandemic, these targets changed as people became the centre of focus.
  • People are more detached from organisations in the wake of hybrid working. It takes far less to make them decide to leave a job and work somewhere else. We are reliant to create the loyalty and engagement to keep people wanting to work for the business.
