A fundamental building block to redesigning performance management is shifting focus from the wants and needs of HR and the organization to a system designed to help employees grow and succeed.

Mid-year check-ins provide an ideal opportunity for manager and employee to “check in” on goal progress; reconfirm priorities; discuss behaviors, actions and development activities that can help the employee be even more effective in the role; and decide together what is next for the employee.

In this session, Jamie Resker of Employee Performance Solutions and Jodi Bartsch of Saba will discuss how to turn mid-year check-ins into something truly meaningful that will boost performance and build stronger bonds between your managers and their people.

You’ll gain insights into:
  • How to use mid-year check-ins to reinforce a culture of ongoing coaching and feedback
  • Key elements of an effective mid-year check-in conversation
  • How to market and promote the value of the mid-year check-in
  • What tools and training your leaders need to get ongoing coaching and feedback right
