Designing Equitable Performance: How to Create Fair, Inclusive Assessments

Speaker: Aubrey Blanche & Sahra Kaboli-Nejad

We are all susceptible to bias and strive to mitigate it through reading, taking classes, and participating in trainings - yet, it seems like these aren’t driving the change we need. Women tend to receive vague, personality-based feedback, where men tend to receive performance related feedback. Work completed by Black men is more likely to be rated as lower quality than White men. And Black women face these overlapping biases in even more extreme ways. So what can we do to address the inequities in the system? Look at the system itself - are we designing an equitable performance system that benefits everyone? Join Culture Amp’s Global Head of Equitable Design and Impact, Aubrey Blanche, along with Diversity, Equity, and Belonging Lead Sahra Kaboli-Nejad, to discuss how we can re-evaluate our performance management systems. We will discuss the benefits of designing a system at every level (individual, manager, and organization) to help mitigate bias and ultimately create a system that finally succeeds at what it is supposed to do - improve performance.

Thrive on Transparency: How to Increase Honest Performance Feedback

Reflektive

Giving constructive feedback is one of the most difficult aspects of the employee/management relationship. Managers want to provide honest performance feedback without upsetting employees. Rather than risk confrontations and hurt feelings, some managers retreat behind the shield of bland, generic performance reviews, generalizations, and insincere praise — softening feedback to the point it becomes useless. Employees can also make it difficult to have honest performance conversations.
