Why performance management and engagement should be linked

Why performance management and engagement should be linked | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Employee engagement and performance management have traditionally been two separate facets of HR’s role. But both need to be better aligned for organisations to get the most from their people.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

I like the idea proposed by the article on linking performance management and engagement. There is no question performance goes up as engagement goes up. Although the article cites the HBR on this subject, and makes a number of key points, it lacks specific recommendations on how to link them together.

Employee Engagement: Moving the Bus in the RIGHT Direction

It's great to have everyone pulling in the same direction, but what if it's the wrong direction?
Barry Deutsch's insight:

I had the opportunity to present our Vistage workshop "You're NOT the Person I Hired" today to a group of CEOs in the LA area. We did a role play around defining success for the team on product development. As we got deeper into the role-play it was obvious not everyone was on the same page for the results needed by the company. This article I just read makes that same point using different words - the need to align everyone on the team on what are the outcomes - this is probably the greatest failure in execution by most companies. How good a job does your company do in aligning expectations around business goals?

Continuous Performance Management begins to gain ground

Continuous Performance Management begins to gain ground | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Continuous Performance Management software is inching into companies as the annual appraisal continues to show its age and lack of business value.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

I've been recommending this idea for over a decade now. Let's kill the traditional sadistic exercise of annual performance reviews and move to Continuous Peformance Management of monthly one-to-ones and regular feedback. Not only will see performance soar, but you'll also see motivation and employee engagement explode.
