When it comes to performance review season, you’ll hear groans from across the organization about one of the most dreaded corporate processes that HR manages: performance reviews.

The HR team spends too much time managing an administrative nightmare, with little visibility into how it’s tracking, and limited ability to do anything useful with performance information once it is collected. Managers complain about how much time it takes, and struggle with delivering objective feedback, smart goal setting, and development plans. Employees feel judged and like they have no say in a totally subjective process. And they don’t feel the information is actionable.

Sound familiar?

In this program, Jodi Bartsch and Kristy Holmes from Saba Software will lead a deep dive into tools you can use right away to improve the process at your organization for everyone involved. You will get ideas about:

  • How to make the review process more meaningful for employees and managers.
  • How to prepare HR, managers and employees for the review cycle.
  • How on-going performance management can support the yearly performance review and make review season easier and more transparent for everyone.
  • How performance management technology can drive and support a seamless review process.
