Alexandria, Va. — The
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved the performance management standard on Nov. 30 as the second American national HR standard sponsored by the
Society for Human Resource Management.
The performance management standard provides employers with a uniform way to analyze and discuss their employees’ job performances, including goal setting and performance improvement plans. A 44-member taskforce comprised of HR professionals, academicians and consultants developed on the standard, which also went through two public review periods.
“This standard establishes a threshold of performance management practices that effective organizations should employ to adequately assess, improve and prepare their employees to deliver on organizational commitments,” said
Lee Webster, SHRM’s director of HR standards. “This document is the forerunner of other standards that will capture and describe these core practices of HR management.”
In February 2009, ANSI designated SHRM as the standards developing organization for HR standards in the United States. SHRM administers the standards development process, including organizing taskforces devoted to developing standards for diversity and inclusion, measures and metrics, staffing, compliance and regulatory, and employee and labor relations..
The cost-per-hire standard, released in 2012, is the first American national HR standard. Also, in October 2011, SHRM and ASIS International jointly released the
ASIS/SHRMWorkplace Violence Prevention and Intervention American National Standard.
