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.

Why It's Up to HR to Illuminate Company Culture

Cornerstone On Demand

When picturing HR departments, most people think of compliance—not creativity. But that's a sorely outdated notion, according to Denise Domian, SVP of HR at the Bon-Ton Stores. As Domian put it at Cornerstone Convergence , it's the responsibility of HR to "be the light, not the lampshade," on company culture. Which means being a bridge between tradition and innovation, and maybe even doing a little rule-breaking.

Elevating HR

DATIS

A recent article by the Harvard Business Review titled, People Before Strategy, discussed how CEOs should be working with the CHRO to elevate HR’s role as a high level strategist within the C-suite. In the article, research showed that CEOs consistently name human capital as their top challenge, yet the same CEOs rank HR as only being the eighth or ninth most important function.
