What's Happening in Performance Management
The event starts with an introduction to the evening’s host, MicroAssist, winner of ATD Austin’s 2019 Leader in Learning Award. After hearing about the instructional design work at MicroAssist, we’ll dive into the topic for the evening: Performance Management.
Performance management is a hot and controversial topic. Most employees dislike performance reviews and there are wildly different approaches to handling reviews. We’ll look at a couple of recommendations on this topic from leaders in the field and have a discussion about what works and does not work in your organization. At the end of this session, you’ll have insight on a variety of approaches to performance review and a good frame of reference for evaluating your own process.
