I've highlighted what I see as the major problems with the performance management cycle here and elsewhere. However, the appraisal cycle is an important component of an effective performance management system.

It's easy enough to pick out what's not working. It's a much…

Using Performance Ratings So They Don't Disengage

Numbers say a lot about your organization, such as how much money it earns or loses, the strength of sales, and the size of the work force. I've made no secret recently about one area where numbers do no good: Employee performance appraisals.



With very few exceptions, attaching a numerical rating to an individual's performance is fraught with difficulty for… Continue

How To Build Trust When Your Team’s Members Don’t Know Each Other



In many (most?) larger organizations,  cross-functional teams are formed whose members are in different locations (sometimes in different states and even in different countries) and know little (if anything) about each other. At least initially, one of the greatest challenges is to develop trust between and…

Do Pay for Performance Schemes Engage Employees?

In my previous post on Sibson Consulting's survey on performance management practices, I pointed out that at least four in five organizations link employee ratings to financial rewards. Yet despite the popularity of pay for performance schemes, only 47% of senior human resources personnel judge their performance management system as assisting their organization achieve its… Continue

Is Employee Goal Setting Helping?

In my previous post on the latest Sibson Consulting survey, I recounted the disappointment that senior human resources professionals felt in their performance management systems. In this post, I want to pick up on one important theme that goes to the heart of any employee appraisal process. That theme is goal setting and measurement.



In the Sibson Consulting survey,… Continue

Employees Avoid Responsibility – How to Fix It

I sometimes meet with managers that have trouble getting their direct reports to accept responsibility for this or that task or objective. In cases such as these, I often find the manager's employees have become disengaged to such an extent that they no longer wish to cooperate with their peers. All too often, the manager has allowed this low performance and non-cooperative culture to develop over some considerable time.



I ask such managers to take a big-picture view and ask themselves… Continue

Ask yourself: Do you work better in the morning and in the evening? Take off every afternoon! Why are you working five days in a row? Can you work alternate days – and rest every other day. If you usually take a fortnight’s holiday (if that!)? Could you take three weeks or a month? Is your optimum output better if you take ten weeks off, instead of four, and work with more energy during the times that you DO work?

www.forbes.com
It's official. Employee engagement is the new black. I’ve been writing and thinking a lot about it lately, as have others. The very notion of how leaders and employees engage has slowly morphed away from ‘companies have to do this because employees want it’ to ‘companies have to do this [...]

And the question is: ‘Why are you still here?’ You learn about the organization by asking questions to employees when they leave you (exit interviews) but you learn far more when you ask them why they are staying (‘stay’ interviews). It’s not a joke. ‘Why are you still here?’ – with the emphasis on…
