Maybe on some level I knew this, but speaker Caroline Adams Miller really made me focus on the topic by discussing the difference between performance and learning goals. Performance goals are ones that focus on an outcome.

The Future of Performance Reviews

HR Ringleader

Steve Boese and I invited guest, Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce, to the HR Happy Hour to discuss this topic because the negativity often associated with performance reviews continues to grow world-wide. Many employees like guidance from a mentor who can provide a framework for them to develop. Managers are not always the best judge of what is needed for career development. Employees know it can be a black mark on their career.

The Changing Nature of Performance

Instead, employees actively seek continuous conversations around their performance, whether those conversations are in the form of peer-to-peer social recognition, feedback through coaching or one-on-one sessions, or career development conversations.

Promotions are valuable, but we must ensure promotions are also real in that they advance a person’s career with the appropriate compensation increase. You can’t give all employees promotions, bonuses, or raises. They become an expectation and it’s a very poor use of budget. Social recognition, however, can be applied to all.
