Register for Learning Cafe WebinarThursday, 23rd June 2016, 12 to 1 PM Sydney





A recent Harvard Business Review (HBR) article, “Reinventing Performance Management”, featured the revamp of the Performance Management system at Deloitte, which mentioned about getting rid of the annual performance reviews tools such as cascading objectives, once-a-year reviews, and 360-degree-feedback in favor of simpler and more frequent performance discussions.  Indeed performance appraisals have been the butt of a lot of jokes in Dibert.

During this online discussion, we will cover the current state of dissatisfaction with Employee Performance Management and hear about new approaches being tried out at Westpac and Fairfax Media.
