Too often people make the mistake of thinking performance management means only performance reviews. Don’t make that same mistake. You’d be doing your employees and your company a big disservice.
It is an important fact that performance management needs to be on going. It’s not a once-a-year, on-the-fly performance review. Having a performance management system is about engaging employees in the company’s vision and direction.
HR departments play a vital role in the strategy, implementation, and execution of the performance management process. In this session, we will dissect the elements of a performance management system, walking participants through each phase and explaining how companies and employees can be better aligned with workplace performance and business growth. Highlights include hiring right; developing and committing to effective goals geared toward business alignment; creating effective development plans; performance review automation and why it’s important; effective communications; and compensation.
On-Boarding – the importance of getting it right
On-boarding is the process of integrating a new hire into their new organization. Most organisations have this process in place to some extent, often just a box-ticking exercise.
On-boarding is important for every new hire to achieve full assimilation, but it becomes more important the more senior the new hire. Failed assimilation can have financial implications for the organization and be career-damaging for the new senior hire.
On-boarding must be seen as an integral part of talent management in an organization. Getting talent acquisition right and ignoring on-boarding will lead to a gap in talent management. In addition, employees are more demanding, and first impressions do count.
A well-structured on-boarding process leads to more positive outcomes, resulting in higher levels of engagement and commitment, and see a return on the hiring investment sooner for external new senior hires. Such a program can be tailored to suit an internal promotion or transfer which can have the same negative affects as an external hire if not supported.

Organizations are faced with a key and critical challenge. Rising pressure to increase top line revenue growth while at the same time improving profitability leads to seeking productivity improvements for your talent. Sound easy? We all know that it isn’t, especially the employee viewpoint that they are already being stretched to the limit given recent workforce reductions. HR leadership has an opportunity to drive MISSION: TALENT-assuring the acquisition of talented new hires, and improving the performance of the current workforce. In this webinar, we will highlight recent findings from The Corporate Executive Board - how to achieve Breakthrough Performance as the starting point for what organizations need to do in top grading their talent to meet organizational objectives. We will highlight the role of assessments in identifying top new hires as well as measuring the competencies of those already in the workforce, how to leverage big data as a measuring stick for success, and the mistakes NOT to make for this mission.
Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.
Recruitment...Less is More, talent acquisition has changed dramatically in just the last five years. It is no longer a simple process of connecting a person to a job and a job to a person. Jobs and people are more visible than ever before, which is both a good and bad thing. We are consistently challenged to think outside the box. What box? Why not get rid of the box! There is no one size fits all recruitment solution. There is no box. To compete in today's world of finding great talent, you have to think differently...react quickly and be ready to change the game. There is a new recruiter tool box.

This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.
At its most basic level, “analytics” is the look at performance metrics in order to identify cause & effect relationships that can guide future actions. But this doesn’t necessarily mean complicated and expensive software; instead it just means using root cause analysis thinking to look for patterns in the data. This presentation will provide an example of the use of root cause analysis (RCA)to look at workforce turnover, and how iterative analysis of the data can help inform our decisions. It will also discuss how HR professionals need to both understand and use RCA, but also deploy it within the organization as a basic core competency.
