Throughout 2014, Deloitte found companies struggling to fix an overly complex, unhappy performance management process to make it simpler and to put more focus on development. Sadly, Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2014 report found that only 8 percent of surveyed global organizations believe their performance management process is worth the time they put into it. The race is on to change that.
How did many current processes suddenly become obsolete? For one thing, an influx of younger workers and heightened demand for skills has made it increasingly important for companies to focus on coaching and development. For another, teams are often led by team leaders (as opposed to managers) and work in a cross-functional way, making traditional manager-led evaluation limiting.
Also contributing to the peer-to-peer dynamic is the fact that social tools now let people share goals, recognition and work-related information in a transparent way.
Finally, numeric ratings, rankings and formal evaluations without positive feedback may create a culture of reduced performance, according to new research on the neurology and psychology of work from David Rock, director of the NeuroLeadership Institute.
