This Episode: How To Embed Continuous Performance Management

Lucinda comes to the third part in her new ‘How to…’ series on rethinking performance appraisals and reviews, with an episode dedicated to practical methods you can use to make sure that performance management is kept as a continuous practice throughout the year, instead of a stressful annual process that doesn’t capture the true picture of someone’s performance.

Key Takeaways

  • If our line managers are not motivated to have quality conversations, then when they feel the pain of people leaving, they will realise why it’s so vital.
  • Evidence clearly shows that people with clear goals, and who are able to realign with them on a regular basis, are far more engaged and far less likely to leave the business.
  • We motivate continuous performance management by communicating how strategically it can be achieved, and also what it can mean to the individual.
  • Without defining set review points as an annual process, we do still need to set expectations that carry on at various points throughout the year in order to keep goals and missions moving.
